Bryan Mandeville Benefit Auction at Ranchman’s

This information comes courtesy of the Ranchman’s event page for this event on Facebook which you can find by clicking here

Things get underway on Friday, May 3rd at 6:00pm at Ranchman’s Cookhouse & Dancehall

Cowboys don’t often ask for help. They’re usually too proud.

But every once in a while, even the best get “thrown”, “hung up” or “into a wreck” and they need our help while they dust themselves off and find their footing.

For decades, Bryan Mandeville has helped more cowboys than he can count. He’s been generous and loyal to a fault and although he’s earned countless friendships, he’s quite private when it comes to his personal life.

So it’s not surprising that when Bryan was diagnosed with non-operable prostate cancer months ago he kept the horrible news to himself.

Bryan would never ask for out help, but he needs it today more than ever as he seeks expensive medical treatment not covered by government healthcare.

Please join us as we host a special night to honour, support and raise necessary treatment funds for our good friend and proud cowboy Bryan Mandeville.

If looking to donate auction items, please contact Wendy Daniel at 403.253.1100 ext 231
