Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

The Lufkin Lions Club is getting ready for their Annual Benefit Rodeo. 

The rodeo has been a tradition for over 65 years. Tuesday the Lions Club had a kick-off event thanking sponsors such a Brookshire Brothers for their support in this event.

Officials say the audience can expect a show for the entire family, four nights of cowboys, stock and steer and live entertainment.

"Its a rodeo that is put together totally by volunteer labor over the course of that period of time there's been almost three million dollars in charitable giving that has come from this rodeo and the money has stayed here locally it has not left, its done something positive in our community," said Mike Mathis, Rodeo Announcer.

The funds from the rodeo will benefit the Lufkin State Supported Living Center.

The rodeo will be April 24th through 27th.
