On May 4th, 2018, Cyndi Zamudio presented the Round-Up and Happy Canyon Hall of Fame with a $50,000 check from the RH Parker/United Finance Foundation for the purchase and implementation of interactive displays in the museum.

The R.H. Parker/United Finance Foundation was established in 1994 by Richard H. Parker, Jr and family with the purpose of furthering education and youth programs in the Pacific Northwest.

“The Hall of Fame is grateful for the generous contribution from the Parker Foundation which will enable our museum to add interactive touch screen history kiosks to our displays. These new pieces will provide an expanded experience for our museum visitors with video, text and photo components allowing visitors to dig deeper into the rich history of our events, competitors and volunteers. During the upcoming year we plan to build four interactive touch screen kiosks highlighting our famous bucking horse “War Paint,” “Competitors through the decades” “Round Up’s Hollywood/Stars Connection” and “Happy Canyon Regalia.” , said Patricia Dawson, Hall of Fame Exhibits Director.
