Dancers end rodeo fun with Cowgirls with Heart dance

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The rodeo fun didn't end at the grandstand on Friday afternoon, as cowgirls and cowboys kept their boots and hats on and made their way to a benefit rodeo dance.

The Fifth Annual Cowgirls with Heart Dance at El Casino Ballroom kept the rodeo fun alive on Friday.

Proceeds from $10 ticket sales went to the Arizona chapter of Western Wishes, a foundation that makes dreams come true for children with cancer and disabilities.

"It was based on Make a Wish Foundation. The premise was to recognize children and families that have an affiliation or a passion for the western way of life. The rodeo life," said Cowgirls with Heart owner Diane Storms.

To donate directly to the Western Wishes, more information can be found at http://www.westernwishes.org
