“While the competition keeps you on the edge of your seat, the real reason we have this event is to raise support for the Children’s Hospital Foundation,” said Weston Givens, Chairman of the OCA Ranch Rodeo Committee.
The Children’s Hospital Foundation has been the selected charity since 1997. In that time OCA has donated more than $553,000 to CHF to help fund children’s medical research and treatment for children right here at home in Oklahoma.
“Just by purchasing a ticket, fans are supporting our mission, but our fans take it one step further by reaching deep into their pockets and providing additional cash donations to the charity during the event,” Givens said.
Givens is referring to a time during the performance where cowboy boots are passed through the crowd so that fans can make additional contributions to the CHF.
“I am so happy to announce that just over $10,000.00 was collected from fans during the Friday and Saturday night performances this year,” Givens said.
Givens, a former OCA Ranch Rodeo participant says, that the camaraderie among the ranch teams, paired with the mission . . . ‘Cowboys Helping Kids’ makes participating worthwhile and enjoyable.
“Ranchers have a built-in instinct to care for others. We care for our land and animals and produce safe and nutritious food that nourishes people around the world. So, raising funds for the Children’s Hospital Foundation is not only natural for the cowboys, but it’s heartfelt,” Givens explained.
According to Givens, the Oklahoma Ford Dealers have supported the OCA Ranch Rodeo since the beginning as the presenting sponsor.
“Without the generous support of the Oklahoma Ford Dealers our donations to our charity of choice would not be near as sizable,” Givens concluded.
