Social Media Promotion to Raise Money for Monterey Veterans, Inc.
SALINAS, CA, November 2, 2016 – The California Rodeo Salinas salutes Veterans each July during Military Day at the Rodeo, but this November the association would like to engage social media fans in a promotion to salute Veterans online and raise money for a local charity, Monterey Bay Veterans, Inc (MBV). The California Rodeo Salinas has partnered with MBV for the past 5 years as part of the Wrangler National Patriot Program, a nationwide program that raises funds for Military causes and allows rodeo committees to choose local charities to support. There have been various fundraisers in the past, including dinners at local restaurants and raffles, to raise funds for MBV, but this year rodeo fans can post photos of the Veterans in their lives to the Rodeo’s Facebook, Instagram or Twitter accounts between November 2nd and November 16th and the California Rodeo will donate $1 for every unique post to MBV, up to a maximum of $500. Participants should use the hashtag #carodeosalutesveterans and try to include the Military branch, years of service, rank and any other significant details about the Veteran that is near and dear to their hearts.
