Call it a charity event gone wrong.

A risque rodeo party for charity caused controversy in the Northern California town of Wilton last weekend when the competitors in a "Best Buns" contest showed a bit more than butt.

The Saturday night event featured men dancing in chaps and jock straps as part of the fundraiser for Shriners Hospital put on by the Capitol Crossroads Gay Rodeo Association.

One parent told Sacramento-area TV station KCRA that he watched in shock from his driveway.

"They had more than best buns: They had everything out there naked, and you can see it plain as day," longtime Wilton resident Monty Stanley said. "What I witnessed there and what you saw on that camera is not different than pornography."

The Capitol Crossroads Gay Rodeo Association admitted men were showing their buns -- but that was it.

"If I would have seen anything inappropriate, I would have kicked them out myself," organizer and vice president Janice Gimbel said. "We tried out best to make sure there wasn't any problem."

The organization said it's being unfairly targeted, possibly because of sexual orientation.

Stanley disputes that. "Oh, no -- that has nothing to do with it." He said. "I don't care if that was a man and lady dancing there naked. You can't have it."

Gimbel said the organization will not be having any more Best Buns contests. She also said she wishes neighbors with complaints would have come and spoken to her about them.
