THE SONOITA FAIRGROUNDS IS NOT A COUNTY-FUNDED FACILITY, WE ARE PRIVATELY OWNED & WE DEPEND FULLY ON OUR MEMBERSHIP & SURROUNDING COMMUNITIES TO HELP SUPPORT THIS WONDERFUL ORGANIZATION. THE STATE OF ARIZONA HAS CUT ALL OF OUR FUNDING FOR THE HORSE RACES & WE WILL NOT BE RECEIVING ANY MONEY. IN ORDER FOR US TO HAVE THE HORSE RACES, AND NOT LET THE TRADITION DIE, WE NEED TO PULL TOGETHER AND MAKE IT HAPPEN OURSELVES. SCCFRA WILL BE ACCEPTING SPONSORSHIPS OF ANY AMOUNT, ANY LITTLE BIT WILL HELP. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CONTACT THE OFFICE AT 520.455.5553. 


THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING SUCH A GREAT COMMUNITY EVENT!!
