The Mandan Rodeo Committee has donated $14,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project.

According to a release, the committee said funds raised through its 2013 Patriot Night and events went to the group that supports military veterans and their families.

Among the fundraising events were a raffle for a pair of single-action revolvers, diamond earrings, tickets to the National Finals Rodeo and a live auction featuring guitars signed by performing artists and the original oil painting by Deb Knuth of Baldwin featured on the 2013 rodeo poster.

The Mandan Rodeo Committee raised $10,000 in 2012 for the Wounded Warriors Project, $6,000 in 2011 for Soldier Angels and Service Dogs for America and $5,000 for the Salute America’s Heroes Coalition to assist injured veterans in 2010.
