The United Way has set up its temporary control center at the Goodwill Headquarters building in downtown Oklahoma City to assist with the distribution of PRCA merchandise to those affected by the recent tornadoes in Moore, Okla., and the surrounding areas.

PRCA Tornado Lazy ETornado victims will be able to come in and select what they need at no charge.

The PRCA donated 300 boxes of 2012 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo merchandise valued at approximately $30,000 to aid the people of Oklahoma. Assisting in the effort was the PRCA’s partners, the Lazy E Arena and Express-Lazy E based in Oklahoma.

“The PRCA is happy to be able to support our rodeo family and friends in Moore, Oklahoma City and all of the nearby areas which were affected by these tragic storms,” PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman said. “Oklahoma City is the site of one of our biggest PRCA events produced by Express-Lazy E – the Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo – and we hope this donation will help those in need during this time of rebuilding.”

The PRCA, headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colo., is the largest and oldest professional rodeo-sanctioning body in the world. The recognized leader in ProRodeo, the PRCA is committed to maintaining the highest standards. The PRCA, a membership-based organization, sanctions approximately 600 rodeos annually, and there are more than 30 million fans in the U.S. The PRCA showcases the world’s best cowboys by televising the sport’s premier events, including the Wrangler Million Dollar Gold Tour presented by Justin Boots, the Justin Boots Playoffs and Championships, Ram National Circuit Finals Rodeo, All American ProRodeo Finals, Champions Challenge, PRCA Xtreme Bulls Tour and the world-renowned Wrangler National Finals Rodeo on Great American Country (DISH Network 165, DirecTV 326). Each year, PRCA-sanctioned rodeos raise more than $26 million for local and national charities.
