The Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association (OCA) is donating $22,000.00 to the Children's Hospital Foundation. The official check presentation will take place on Monday, Dec. 14, 1 p.m. at the OCA Headquarters located in Historic Stockyards City, Okla.
"In 1985, the OCA created the Range Round-Up, a ranch rodeo, to provide family entertainment, promote beef and raise money for charity. 2015 marks the 19th year in a row that the selected charity has been the Children's Hospital Foundation," said Tim Drummond, Chairman of the OCA Range Round-Up Committee. "In that time, OCA has donated more than $426,000.00 and formed a strong connection to the charity and its work. This year's donation is the largest single donation we have ever given."
The Range Round-Up event is held annually at the Lazy E Arena. The Lazy E Arena is contributing to the mission of the Range Round-Up too by making their own donation of $5,000.00 to the Children's Hospital Foundation.
The OCA Range Round Up features 12 historic Oklahoma ranch teams in head to head competition for bruises and bragging rights. The OCA Range Round-Up is a ranch rodeo, comprised of six events depicting day-to-day ranching jobs.
