Gold Buckle Champion has a long history of putting on events that have a large community involvement. The March show is home of the Nampa Fire Department BBQ to raise money for their Burn Out Fund. After just 3 short years of involvement, Gold Buckle has helped them go from $500 per event to over $10,000. The August-September event is home to the Marines Toys for Tots, which we have also helped to raise thousands of dollars for children in Idaho and northern Nevada.
Because of our efforts, thousands of people attend these FREE events to introduce their children to a rural lifestyle and agriculture events. The September 6th event will also be a networking event for local chamber of commerce’s’, businesses, and the Toys for Tots kick-off with an Abrams M1A1 Tank that the public can tour, for just the price of one new toy. Admission to the ICHA Futurity & Aged Event and Mercuria World Series, an internationally renowned show, is also FREE. Contestants come from all over the United States and World to attend these events. Admission for booth space to local businesses is a donation to either Gold Buckle Champion or the Toys for Tots campaign.
