ICYMI--12 Teams of Oklahoma Cowboys Compete in Five Events to Raise Money for the Children’s Hospital

Mon, 16 Aug 2021 17:11:55 CDT

ICYMI--12 Teams of Oklahoma Cowboys Compete in Five Events to Raise Money for the Children’s Hospital 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. 20 and Saturday, Aug. 21 at.

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).

Associate farm Director KC Sheperd spoke with OCA's Weston Givens and he said this is a worthy cause, "“CHF has been the benefitting charity of the event since 1997 and in that time the OCA Ranch Rodeo has raised more than $553,000.00 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 2021 participating ranches include: Spur Ranch, Vinita; Gray G Bar Ranch, Shidler; Buford Ranches, LLC, Hominy; Stuart Ranch, Waurika; Drummond Land & Cattle, Pawhuska; Hall Ranch, Comanche will partner up with Daube Ranch, Ardmore; Treadwell Land & Cattle, Frederick; Fields Ranch, Wynona; Lazy Rafter Slash Ranch, Lenapah; Trentman Ranch, Pawhuska will team up with Stierwalt Ranch & Cattle Co, Shidler; Whitmire Ranch, Delaware; and McPhail Land & Cattle, Mountain Park.

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.
