Entering in the Miss Rodeo Australia contest, Ms Gallagher will fundraise for Sisters of the North leading up to the competition in January 2020.
The Denim and Diamonds Gala Ball held on May 18 will be the first fundraising event for Ms Gallagher with all funds assisting North West graziers affected by the devastating floods.
“Sisters of the North are raising funds to help local farmers. This really hit close to home for me as I am from one of the properties who were affected by the floods,” Ms Gallagher said.
“So choosing a charity like SOTN, where all the funds raised are distributed back to local graziers and landowners was really important to me.
“Another big part of why I chose them was their goals, even before the floods, SOTN were all about resilience and connection in our rural community, which can sometimes be overlooked out here.
“All in all they locals, helping locals and if that isn’t a good cause to get behind I’m not sure there is one!”
In conjunction with her fundraising efforts, the Denim and Diamonds Gala Ball was also to celebrate the 65th Annual Curry Merry Muster Rodeo.
Curry Merry Muster Festival president Janessa Bidgood, said it was a great opportunity to dress up and celebrate all the things we love about rodeo.
“The committee are super proud of our 65 year history that has been build over the years and we look forward to another 65 years,” Ms Bidgood said.
“We are very proud to have Emmy onboard this year and actively fundraising in the Cloncurry community and shining a positive light creating events that all can enjoy.”
