The Ranch family made the commitment to sponsor and conduct the annual Rodeo to help perpetuate the tradition of rodeo and to pay tribute to the sport, to the heritage of the land, and to raise funds for local charities. To date, The Rodeo has distributed more than $1.6 million to local charities in San Juan Capistrano and continues to provide support for important San Juan Capistrano charities.
The funds raised help honor the old cowboy tradition of “passing the hat” in support of a family in need. Over the years, all proceeds from the Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo have been donated to such charities as CHOC at Mission Hospital and J.F. Shea Therapeutic Riding Center.
