In 1949, Franklin Noon Rotary Club hosted their first rodeo in Franklin, Tennessee. Nearly 72 years later it is the largest rodeo in the state. After a two-year break, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the rodeo returned in 2022. Interlace Health was honored to be along for the ride as a 2022 event sponsor.
This past May, the Franklin Noon Rotary Club celebrated its 71st year producing the rodeo. Interlace Health has been a proud sponsor of the rodeo for the past 4 years. This multi-day event brings in over 18,000 people each year. Each day of the event has a different theme that sponsors a charity. Engaging and interactive activities such as a Parade, Mutton Bustin’, Barrel Racing and Bull Riding, are a tremendous draw for the crowds. It is an event for the whole family to enjoy.
“Interlace Health strives to lead with heart, and supporting the rodeo allows us to do just that. Contributing back to the community in a major way, while also having a really good time.”- Allison Reichenbach President, Interlace Health
“In the ‘60’s, there was a shortage of physicians, dentists, and trained nurses in our county. For many years, the Franklin Noon Rotary Club gave scholarships to medical, dental and nursing schools. That financial aid produced a number of good doctors, dentists, and nurses.” – Haynes
The Franklin Rodeo has raised over $4 million dollars for charity in the last 70 years. One hundred percent of the proceeds go to various charities, making a difference in people’s lives. They have contributed to scholarships, non-profit organizations, medical centers, and so much more. This event requires over 300+ volunteers per day, and engages the community in a multitude of ways.
