DECATUR COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

By LeiLani Golden - bio | email

DECATUR COUNTY, GA (WALB) –The 2nd Annual Port City Rodeo benefiting the Decatur County Family Connection kicks off Friday.

The rodeo serves as one of the organization's only fundraisers. Family Connection's acts as a catalyst for improving the quality of life for Decatur County's children and families.

Organizers say the professional rodeo has attracted cowboys from as far away as Texas and should be a lot of fun for a good cause.

"The rodeo itself is a good way to promote family values," Ronnie Burke, DCFC coordinator explains. "A wholesome alcohol free event we're having and it's low cost."

"It's just really special and a good cause for Family Connection to have an event out here to raise money to give to charity and to help out. And I'm just glad they chose to have it out here," says Daniel Barnard, the Super B Ranch's owner.

The Port City Rodeo begins Friday at 5 PM at Super B Ranch on Colquitt Highway.
