Hello Knight Supporters,
We truly appreciate any support you can give to our fundraising efforts with the Santa Maria Elks Rodeo & Parade. Your generosity will make the most of their hard work by helping to help pay for the school’s tuition assistance program to make a St. Joseph High School education possible for deserving knights who wouldn’t be able to attend without financial aid. Donations are vital to the success of this program.
The Santa Maria Elks Rodeo hold a Queen Contest to raise funds for youth programs. During this campaign, contestants coordinate barbecues, dances, sports related contests, car washes, bake sales, auctions, and various other activities to obtain donations. This program offers Santa Maria Valley and surrounding communities’ non-profit organizations the opportunity to sponsor a Queen Candidate. Each candidate must be of high school or college age. As of 2019, there have been over 430 young ladies that have competed for Queen and over 13 million dollars has been distributed back throughout our community.
I am honored to be representing St. Joseph High School in the 2020 Elks Rodeo Queen Campaign. St. Joseph is devoted to providing a quality Catholic education to our youth. Our school motto is: to image Christ in mind, heart, body, and soul. During my campaign as an Elks princess, I strive to meet this motto by eliminating financial barriers for future Knights. All proceeds raised will be allocated to our Tuition Assistance Program. To me, Saint Joe’s is not just a school, it is a home. That is why I am so passionate about giving deserving students the option to make SJHS their home. I am endlessly thankful for your support as we come together to provide financial assistance to future Knights. God bless! We are proud to have a remarkable group of exceptional young students that attend our school.
Anna Kuykendall, SJHS Rodeo Princess
