A benefit cutting is scheduled for March 1-2 to aid Rein in Cancer. Exhibitors can look forward to fundraising fun and games during the Beef Empire Cutting Horse Association-produced National Cutting Horse Association-approved event in Cherokee, Oklahoma.
 
Special activities begin with a bridleless cutting on Friday night, with the teams to be auctioned off at approximately 6 p.m in a Calcutta-style auction.
 
Various fundraising activities for Rein In Cancer will take place throughout the course of the two days. Attendees can opt to try the Frisbee toss, dummy roping, silent auction or paintball "target shooting".
 
The officers of Rein in Cancer are appreciative of the generosity of the Beef Empire Cutting Horse Association in staging these special activities.

"We are so excited and grateful to Beef Empire Cutting Horse Association for hosting this event and hope the cutters enter up in the special events and buy the Calcutta participants to help Rein in Cancer," said Tracie Anderson, Rein in Cancer secretary-treasurer. "The need for help is great among horse industry cancer patients."
 
She added that in 2012, Rein in Cancer provided financial support to more than a dozen horsemen and horsewomen in Oklahoma and Kansas.
