RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- For some it's a good time on Friday night, but for Cindy Rosser, it's a way of life.

"It's in my blood," Rosser says.

Rosser's family has been involved in the Reno Rodeo for more than 50 years.

"I can remember coming here when it was wooden chutes and they had a racetrack," Rosser says.

Her role in the rodeo has evolved over the years.

She's grown up around horses and used to compete in barrel racing.

Rosser now owns livestock owner and the large behind the scenes job of being the reno rodeo secretary.

"I'm kind of the hub rodeo itself everything revolves around this office and around what I do," Rosser says.

Rosser handles all the points, scores, times, and pay outs.

Who better than a woman who's dedicated her life to rodeo.

Rosser says she enjoys being an advocate for women.

"You can do exactly what you want and you can be in this business as long as you have good help behind you and don't let it get you down you can do what you want when you put your mind to it," Rosser says.

Another advocate and role model for women is Reno native Lita Scott.

Scott is a well-known and accomplished barrel racer who continues to ride, teach, and raise horses.

For Pink Day on Friday at the Reno Rodeo, Scott is raffling off a one-of-a-kind Great Basin Style Chinks that are embellished in the breast cancer awareness ribbon, pink, and diamonds. The funds raised will go towards the Reno Rodeo Foundation.

To date, the Reno Rode Foundation has donated about $75,000 to Mom's on the Run and even more to various local efforts.

Raffle tickets are $6 a piece or two for $10.
