Paul and I have been involved with Chase Hawks since the charity was founded. Each year for the Chase Hawks Rodeo, a local business will donate a skybox at MetraPark so that people can bid on it with all the money going to Chase Hawks.

The high bidder will get the skybox, with seating for up to 15 in addition to 15 pre-rodeo party passes and 15 after-party passes where "Cold Hard Cash" will perform.

A prime rib dinner will be served for 15 put on by Duane and Susan from Bull Mountain Grill. And to top it all off, the first round of drinks is on Chase Hawks. As of this morning, the top bid stands at $500.. But that won't take it. You can bid by e-mailing the Flakes at, or simply calling us at 248-5665, 5-10 a.m., Monday through Friday.
