Encouraging family interaction while furthering the goal of no domestic violence, on November 22nd the local Cowgirls’ Association “Huellas de Mujer” will be holding their first ride as a fundraiser for Amores de Peñasco Children’s Crisis Shelter.
Hiram Rodríguez, President of the Municipal PRI Committee (who, along with the State PRI Committee, is also involved in the aevent) remarked the event aims to bring together riders and families from across the region in what will be quite a show for the city. In addition, they aim to promote the gathering of families from distinct municipalities in the northwestern part of the state.
“The event will begin on Saturday (Nov. 22) at 10 a.m. (Blvd. Godoy and Lázaro Cárdenas), which is the day of the ride followed by a traditional afternoon fiesta. We also invite riders to camp and the event will end on Sunday morning with a breakfast with both riders and their families; it’s a regional event,” explained Rodríguez.
Milva Gutiérrez Canastillo, member of Huellas de Mujer, detailed the fiesta will include live Norteña music, raffles of saddles and other gifts, as well as food and space for the horses to rest. There will also be an icebreaker event for participants.
Families from Puerto Peñasco, San Luis Río Colorado, Sonoyta, Caborca, and Pitiquito are expected to take part in this weekend’s ride, along with PRI party members from both the state and municipal levels.
