The Canby Rodeo Association recently presented a check for $8,324 to the Willamette Falls Hospital Foundation for cancer research from this years Canby Rodeo.
The rodeo association has donated more than $16,000 to cancer awareness over the past seven years through Canby Chamber of Commerce lunch donations, money collected on Pink Night at the rodeo during the Clackamas County Fair.
The majority of this years total, roughly $7,000, was generated by the auction of a pair of pink accented chaps made by Dan Mickelson and Todd Gary, both Canby Rodeo directors.
The winning bidders were Mike Hulett, Rick Jonas and Curtis Ellyes.
Providence Willamette Falls will hold its next mammography screening for uninsured or underinsured women in Clackamas County in February. Last weeks donation will help cover the entire cost of the screening, so no women will be turned away.
