Wrangler is proud of the Wrangler® National Patriot™ program, created to provide funding and support for America's wounded and fallen soldiers and their families. Learn more at by watching this video narrated by George Strait. This
program is modeled after Wrangler’s Tough Enough to Wear Pink campaign that
raised awareness and funds for breast cancer research and allowed the money
raised to stay in local Rodeo communities. This year on Saturday July 19th the California
Rodeo will have our annual Salute to Military day at the Rodeo and include the
Wrangler National Patriot initiative as part of that day. Active military will
gain free entry into the Rodeo with their IDs and there will be a salute to these
heroes during the opening ceremony of the Rodeo.
The California Rodeo Salinas supports the WNPP and is honored to donate funds generated by the program to Monterey Bay Veterans, Inc., a local charity doing GREAT things to help Wounded Warriors and Veterans.
2014 will be the 4th year the California Rodeo is participating in the
Wrangler National Patriot Program and donating money to the Monterey Bay
Veterans, a charity started in Monterey, California, and recognized nationally
for providing marine rehabilitation by way of fishing trips for wounded
warriors and veterans. Visit www.mbv.org to learn more.
