The 8th Annual Boston Porter Memorial Bull Riding & UBBI event was held last weekend in Palestine, Texas. The event was established to honor Boston Porter, who lost his life in a tragic accident at the age of only 14 months. Boston was the son of Nicole Porter, who is the daughter of Jimmy & Kim Ray, the co-owners of the United Bucking Bulls, Inc. For the past seven years, this event has raised and awarded over $120,000 in scholarship assistance to Anderson County Youth who are involved in 4H and/or FFA. In 2014, the scholarship committee is expected to award over $20,000 in scholarships.

To help raise funds for this worthy cause, UBBI members, Lowell & Sylvia Clay graciously donated a beautiful ABBI registered heifer to be auctioned off. Lowell & Sylvia are from Palestine and 100% of the auction proceeds were donated to the Boston Porter Scholarship Fund.

The heifer was presented for auction at the conclusion of the Youth Futurity competition on Saturday morning and several members placed bids to purchase this phenomenal female. When all was said and done, it was UBBI member Chad Ramer with Rockin R, who purchased the heifer for $3750. One Hundred Percent of that went to the Boston Porter Memorial Scholarship Fund.

“First we want to thank Lowell and Sylvia Clay for donating such a great heifer,” stated Jimmy Ray.  “Our UBBI members are really great and thanks to Chad Ramer for supporting our cause! I’m overwhelmed at how much our breeders pitch in to help!”

Chad Ramer is a UBBI member and a full-time rodeo stock contractor from Sulfur, Oklahoma. Many thanks to Chad from the Ray and Porter family for purchasing the heifer and to Lowell and Sylvia Clay for their donation.
