Buck Off Challenge Raises Money For Honor Flight

The first-place winners Real Bucking Deal claim their award.

The fourth annual AmberWay Equine Buck Off Challenge was an overwhelming success, raising a record amount of money to benefit Southeast Florida Honor Flight. After a one-year-hiatus, the family-friendly mechanical bull-riding event was held Friday, March 18 at the Wellington Promenade behind the Wellington Community Center. An enthusiastic crowd raised more than $65,000 for the nonprofit organization that brings veterans to visit Washington, D.C., to visit the memorials built to honor their service and sacrifices. The Real Bucking Deal team won its third consecutive championship with a total of 393 out of a possible 400 points. A total of 13 teams of four riders took part in the event.
