WPRA Donates a Dorman Burns Print for the Boe Kellogg Benefit Race


The flooding rains and freezing temperatures did not keep the supporters and barrel racers at home.

We could not have done this without everyone involved from the work crew, contestants, donation items, stallion owners & arena owner. We had a total of 256 entries and $2,000 added. The added money was donated by eight different sponsors.

The race was held on January 30, 2010 @ Cowboy Collection Arena in Terrell, TX. The arena was donated by the owner, Jeff Smith. We had local contestants as well as contestants from as far as Kentucky, Georgia and Indiana. At the end of the day Jolene Stewart stopped the clock with a 15.1 and arena record. The race has been recorded with Equi-Stat so has gone down in history!

The raffle items, including the WPRA print, were all offered in the auction. All items were displayed on the 20 tables with a bid sheet. The auction was a huge success, as well. One of our largest donors was Jud Little. He donated a breeding to Bug In My Frosty as well as matched the monies earned at the race in the amount of $10,000. At the end of the day we had raised a total of $36,600. The WPRA print, Looking for the Cure, was won by Kappie Nelson. She is a long time WPRA member and now resides in Marshall, TX.

The race monies were all donated to Boe Kellogg to help with his rising medical costs. The family of seven includes Boe Kellogg, Randa Kellogg, and their five boys, as follows:
Hays is 14 years old.
Jake is 13 years old.
Jared is 11 years old.
Jace is 4 years old.
Jett is 22 months old.

The race was produced by Rebecca Rockett-Merritt, Lisa Baccus, and Barbara Jenkins. The race team did not end there! We had vital volunteers including Donna Johnston-Wilder, Cheri Cogburn, Stephanie Green, Sharon Luker, and Robin Hill in the office, as well. The dirt crew consisted of one determined volunteer, Tony Jenkins. The arena crew was managed by Penny Gaylor (barrel setters). We are a huge supportive family in East Texas and take pride in helping our fellow barrel racers and friends.

Congratulations to Kappie Nelson, Marshall, Texas..she won the Dorman Burns print!!

The WPRA wishes to thank our generous sponsors and asks you to please check out their websites and learn about their product offers!
