Laurie’s Benefit

By Bob Silbernagel

Fruita barrel racer and cowgirl Laurie Platz has been suffering from a tumor in her lung. Her daughter told me doctors confirmed this week that it is cancer.

To assist Laurie and her family in paying the medical bills, Rim Rock Rodeo Arena on the south side of the Colorado River in Fruita will hos a Bulls, Barrels, & Team Roping competition — along with a silent auction — Friday May 13.

The performance begins at 7:30 p.m. (slack at 5 p.m.) Admission is $5 a person, with children under 12 free. All proceeds go to Laurie's Benefit, through the Bank of the West.

To enter in the Bulls or Barrels, call 970-434-7515. for Team roping, call 970-270-6224.
