On Friday June 26, representatives from the OCSP Special Angels Rodeo showed up at OCARC with a couple surprises for the staff and clients of that organization. Chairman Lue Harris, Sponsorship Coordinator Jo Harris, and Marketing Coordinator Kevin Norton brought a check to present to OCARC in the amount of $1,000.
The funds were designated to be spent for fun activities for the clients who are served by that organization. They also brought along a 50 quart K2 to be included in the fundraising efforts that are a part of OCARC’s annual fishing tournament. The staff and clients were also presented with a plaque recognizing all of their hard work preparing banners and other items for the 2014 Special Angels Rodeo.

While they were there, the Special Angels representatives were also able to visit with NFL superstar and Orange native Earl Thomas III who is also a supporter of the OCSP Special Angels Rodeo. For last year’s Fish Fry and Auction Fundraiser, Thomas donated two autographed footballs that sold for a total of $2,000. A third autographed football was given away the day of the Special Angels Rodeo in a drawing that was only open to participants. Thomas received a custom plaque in recognition of his support of Special Angels Rodeo.
