Palms is proud to be a sponsor of the 3x Gold Buckle World Champion Tie-down roper, Tuf Cooper.

In 2013, he became the youngest cowboy millionaire in professional rodeo history and, in 2017, Tuf took center stage in the cowboy sport, winning the most prestigious of all professional rodeo titles as the World Champion All-Around Cowboy.

“I’m really excited about this year’s NFR, Join me at the PALMS to watch the nightly NFR LIVE FEED, the awesome After Party with music provided by Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation,” said Cooper. “I look forward to seeing you there. WHERE FUN FINDS YOU!”
