Barrel benefit raises funds for Jason Bannan

Bill Brewster

Several thousand dollars was raised recently during the Jason Bannan Benefit Barrel Race at the Circle L Arena of Belgrade, MT. Bannon, from the Dry Creek area between Belgrade and Manhattan, was training a colt for a client when it fell with him and broke three vertebrae in his neck. Bannan was airlifted to Billings after the accident. He was in a halo for three weeks and then had a 10-hour surgery on Aug. 20 to repair the fractures.

He is on his way to recovery, but with sustained major medical expenses. The Circle L Arena and the ranching and rodeo communities in the area staged a benefit that included the barrel race, an auction and spaghetti dinner to raise funds to help defray expenses.

Justin Bannan, Jason’s brother, a defensive tackle for the Denver Broncos traveled to the event and donated Bronco tickets as a drawing.

Jason and his wife, Rosie, have two young children, Teresa and Jack.
