Spent Here, Stays Here


The money that you spend at select food booths, buying programs, parking your car and more during the Rodeo and other events at the Salinas Sports Complex stays right here in Monterey County. Each year the California Rodeo Inc. gives back over $350,000 to our local non-profits thanks to your, our patrons and sponsors, support.

Some of the organizations that benefit from these fundraising activities include:

  • Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System's Comprehensive Cancer Center (as part of Wrangler's Tough Enough to Wear Pink Campaign)
  • Monterey Bay Veterans, Inc (as part of Wrangler's National Patriot Program)
  • Palma High School
  • Ag Against Hunger
  • Boys Scouts Troop #232
  • The Math Club at Salinas High School
  • American Little League
  • Graves School
  • Lagunita School
  • Cub Scout Pack #68
  • Everett Alvarez High School
