TARLETON (March 6, 2018) – The Sigma Alpha-Alpha Zeta Chapter at Tarleton held a Buck Off in Heritage Park on the TSU Campus on Tuesday evening. The Buck Off is a mechanical bull riding competition where the top three rides received prizes such as LJT tickets. The money raised at this event, and beforehand from sponsors and donations, is given to the philanthropy group Heifer International. Heifer International is charity that works to end world hunger and poverty by purchasing animals for a family in need, which is what the proceeds made at Buck Off will be used for. These animals can provide food and revenue to these families. Attendees were able to enjoy mechanical bull riding, and hamburgers, as well as some live music from Bodi Mathis and headliners, Cottonwood Crows.
