Funds raised at the gala will benefit the Sky Ranch Scholarship Gift Program. This initiative supports military families and those in public service and also impacts children facing circumstances beyond their control to attend a life-changing week of Summer Camp. Sky Ranch offers a special session for inner-city children called TRU Camp and works with collaborative partners to identify campers, these partners include: West Dallas Community School, Reconciliation Outreach, HIS Bridgebuilders, InterFaith Housing Coalition, New Friends New Life, Angola Prison and Angel Tree Prison Ministry.

Last year, the gala raised more than $700,000 to provide scholarships for nearly 1,200 deserving kids to attend summer camp and to support the invaluable ministries at Sky Ranch. 

The gala’s 10th anniversary will draw past celebrity honorees and other legendary cowboys from both the gridiron and the rodeo arena to commemorate this chic boots and bling soiree.  

During the VIP sponsor party, guests learned that the 2017 Cowboys and Cowboys Sky Ranch Gala boasts a stellar lineup of Honorary Celebrity Chairs. Featured honorees include: Roy Cooper; Jeff Copenhaver, Tony Dorsett; Walt Garrison; Don Gay; Leon Harrel; Chad Hennings; Michael Irvin; Lee Roy Jordan; Larry Mahan; Pam Minick; Ty Murray; Rope Myers; Dat Nguyen; Ted Nuce; Tony Romo; Rob Smets; Roger Staubach; and Darren Woodson.

There will be many impressive added attractions for this special 10th anniversary event. Gilley’s Dallas will not only serve as the gala’s new location, but the venue will also play host to Nashville recording artist Blane Howard who will provide musical entertainment to cap off the evening.  

Guests will also have an opportunity to bid on an array of fabulous prizes and live auction items at the Cowboys and Cowboys Sky Ranch Gala. Some of the highly-anticipated items up for grabs include a “Sky” blue 1965 Corvette and once in a lifetime experiences with celebrity cowboys.
