CINCH Style Show

Annual NIRA Fashion Show
Luncheon, Live Auction, & Silent Auction
Saturday, June 17, 2023 11:30am - 1:00pm
Ramkota Hotel ~ 800 N. Poplar ~ Casper, WY 82601
Presented by: Cinch
All proceeds go to the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association Foundation

The 2023 College National Finals Rodeo is on its way to Casper this June. Come support the NIRA Foundation in providing scholarships to CNFR participants at the Annual Style Show at the Ramkota Hotel and Conference Center on Saturday, June 17 from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm.

Although the event is called a style show and the audience is entertained by the CINCH All Star Contestants displaying clothing donated by CINCH and Cruel Girl, the focus is on generating funds for the Foundation. The live auction and silent auction generate $15,000 to $20,000 each year for this worthy cause.

The Foundation was created in 1994 within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code to carry out certain educational and charitable activities in connection with the sport of collegiate rodeo.

A few activities include: Injured Athlete Relief Fund, Historical Preservation Fund, Scholarship Fund, and Rawhide (Rodeo Athletes on Wellness) Fund.

There will be door prizes, wine on each table, games and raffles, and many auction items. Each college rodeo region brings in items unique to their area which gives attendees the opportunity to acquire items not otherwise available in Casper.


Casper, Wyoming

Casper is home to iconic landscapes waiting to be explored, touchable history waiting to be experienced, amazing food waiting to be devoured, and endless things to do around every corner.

CNFR Fact Sheet

Who: Approximately 400 of the nation's top college rodeo athletes representing more than 100 institutions of higher learning from 11 regions will compete in nine rodeo events.

What: National championships for individuals and teams will be determined this week.

Events: Men compete in saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, bull riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, and team roping. Women compete in barrel racing, breakaway roping, goat tying, and team roping.

Format: Individuals complete three times with the top 12 advancing to the Championship Finals. That's where the individual event, men's and women's all-around, and national team champions will be crowned. While scores and times are very important, the all-around and team titles are based on a point system.

Scholarships: Thousands of dollars in scholarships are awarded from the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA) foundation and NIRA Alumni. Special scholarships and awards will also be presented nightly at the rodeo.
