Professional Video Production for Charity


The Final Code video team helped Jedlicka’s support The Make A Wish Foundation by producing a free professional video featuring Damian Gomez’s wish to meet rodeo cowboys.

Damian Gomez is a 9 year old boy from Santa Maria came to spend at Jedlicka for some one-on-one time with the Professional Bull Riding Tour cowboys on Thursday the 2nd of August as part of his wish granted by the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Damian, who has Hodgkin’s disease, met up with the cowboys at our Jedlicka’s Saddlery,  store located at 2605 De la Vina St. in Santa Barbara, where they were signing autographs and taking pictures.

Damian was all smiles while he shopped for a new cowboy hat, explored our store with his family and chatted with his bull rider heroes.

Damian has loved watching bull riding on television since he was 4 years old and it was his wish meet them in person. He was able to meet cowboys Ryan Dirteater, Rocky McDonald, Chase Outlaw and Sean Willingham who shared stories of broken bones and their many years of riding bulls for the crowd, which Damian said was his favorite part of the afternoon.

After visiting the store the whole Gomez family enjoyed the show at the Earl Warren Showgrounds where they were able to cheer on the cowboys and get a behind-the-scenes tour, given by the 2012 Old Spanish Days Fiesta Stock Horse Show & Rodeo.

The Gomez family has been going through Damian’s battle with Hodgkin’s together, and a day meeting Damian’s heroes, shopping with us at Jedlicka’s and attending the 2012 Old Spanish Days Rodeo proved to be a young boy’s day to remember.
