“We all have heavy hearts over the tragic events that occurred on Wednesday,” LVE President Tim Keener said in a press release. “The National Finals Rodeo has brought the Las Vegas community together since 1985, and we will honor those that we have lost through our rodeo – an event that celebrates unity, togetherness and bringing friends and families together. We will do this in solidarity with our fans, as well as our partners at the PRCA, UNLV and the community.”
