Oklahoma Cowboys Compete to Raise Money for the Children's Hospital Foundation

Mon, 17 Aug 2020 06:06:33 CDT

Oklahoma Cowboys Compete to Raise Money for the Children's Hospital Foundation    

Twelve teams of real Oklahoma ranch cowboys will compete in five different events mirroring many of the activities of daily ranch life this weekend at the Lazy E Arena. Performances will be held on Friday, Aug. 21 and Saturday, Aug. 22.

Doors open at 5 p.m. for shopping in the trade show and the performance begins nightly at 7 p.m.

The competition is fierce, but the cowboys do not take home much more than bumps and bragging rights. They participate with one goal: to support the Children's Hospital Foundation (CHF).

"CHF has been the benefitting charity of the event since 1997 and in that time the OCA Ranch Rodeo has raised more than $531,000.00 for the Children's Hospital Foundation," said Givens. "When you purchase a ticket to the OCA Ranch Rodeo, you are supporting Oklahoma children and their families."

CHF funds children's medical research and treatment for children right here in Oklahoma. The funds raised for CHF in Oklahoma, stay in Oklahoma.
"So, bring the family for a fun evening, cheer on your favorite ranch team and know that you are supporting a worthy cause," Givens said.

The 2020 participating ranches include: Alfalfa County Land & Cattle, Cherokee, Okla.; Gray G Bar, Shidler, Okla.; Buford Ranches, LLC, Hominy, Okla.; Stuart Ranch, Waurika, Okla.; Drummond Land & Cattle Co., Pawhuska, Okla.; Hall Ranch & Daube Cattle Co., Comanche and Ardmore, Okla.; Treadwell Land & Cattle, Frederick, Okla.; Chain Ranch, Canton, Okla.; Lazy Rafter Slash Ranch, Lenapah, Okla.; Trentman Ranch, Pawhuska, Okla. and Steirwalt Ranch & Cattle, Co., Shidler, Okla.; Whitmire Ranch, Delaware, Okla.; and McPhail Land & Cattle, Mountain Park, Okla.

According to Givens, the Oklahoma Ford Dealers have supported the OCA Ranch Rodeo since the beginning as the presenting sponsor.

"Saturday is a full day! Families could really make a weekend of it," said Givens.
