The Victoria Jaycees' third annual Crossroads Cowboy Classic benefits a cause close to the hearts of its members. Traci Shadle, co-chairwoman of the Crossroads Cowboy Classic, told the Victoria Advocate the event is one of the many fundraisers hosted by the group to raise money for different organizations in the area. This year, funds from the event will go toward the Victoria County 4-H Clubs. The Victoria Jaycees will bring the two-day Crossroads Cowboy Classic to the Victoria Community Center and livestock arena Friday and Saturday.

Friday and Saturday will include bull riding, along with mutton bustin' and a pig scramble for the kids. The Phillip Griffin Band and Cory Morrow will perform Saturday night to wrap things up.

Shadle is the club manager of the Guadalupe 4-H group and knows firsthand how important it is for community groups like 4-H to receive help from the Victoria Jaycees. "It helps them breathe a little easier," Shadle said. Money raised from the event will help the 13 Victoria County 4-H clubs with dues and other expenses.
