Event Helps Raise Scholarships to Send Deserving Kids to Summer Camp at Sky Ranch
The ever-popular Cowboys & Cowboys Sky Ranch Gala is rounding up new supporters with Dallas Cowboys Hall of Famer Michael Irvin saddled up to lead the way. Irvin has graciously come on board as the 2014 Honorary Celebrity Chair of the Cowboys & Cowboys Sky Ranch Gala, Dallas’ much-anticipated chic western soiree. The event is set for Saturday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m. at the Omni Dallas Hotel, 555 S. Lamar St. Highlights will include fabulous silent and live auctions, amazing raffle prizes, fine dining and entertainment. Visit www.CowboysAndCowboys.com.
This fashionable boots and bling event draws legendary cowboys from both the gridiron and the rodeo arena. Joining Irvin at this elegant western affair will be a host of other cowboy celebrity icons from the NFL and the championship rodeo circuit, along with approximately 600 other friends and supporters of Sky Ranch.
Sky Ranch Camps have served youth and families for more than 55 years by offering safe, fun and character-building Summer Camps, Retreats and Conferences and Outdoor Education programs. With properties in Texas, Colorado and Oklahoma, Sky Ranch serves well over 50,000 guests annually.
Proceeds from the gala benefit Sky Ranch to support these invaluable outreach initiatives and help fund its expanding scholarship program. Scholarships raised during the gala are instrumental in helping send deserving kids to summer camp at Sky Ranch, who might not otherwise have an opportunity to take advantage of this life-enriching experience.
“I am humbled and honored for the opportunity to help children who face challenges beyond their control,” said Michael Irvin, Honorary Celebrity Chair. “My prayer is that through the 2014 Cowboys and Cowboys Sky Ranch Gala, together, we can deliver the gift of Sky Ranch’s camp – a camp that focuses not just on summer fun, but drawing out each child’s potential to lead with godly character. This opportunity to make an eternal investment in the lives of these kids is a blessing.”
This year, the star-studded Cowboys and Cowboys Sky Ranch Gala may exceed fundraising expectations. To help fund scholarships, guests may bid on luxury items such as jewelry, restaurant gift cards, travel packages, celeb-signed guitars, golf outings, local sports tickets and more treasures in the silent and live auctions. “The gala is an exciting evening of entertainment and fun,” said Irvin. “However, we never lose sight that the focus is on supporting the mission of Sky Ranch and helping change lives one kid at a time.”
