Two Great Charities, One Great Event! Two outstanding organizations committed to preserving Western Heritage in the Fort Worth Stockyards are coming together for one great event, the American Cowboy Gala, on Thursday, July 26st, 2018 at Cowtown Coliseum.
The American Cowboy Gala will raise funds to provide support for:
- Friends of the Fort Worth Herd - provides in-kind and monetary support for the Fort Worth Herd twice daily cattle drive, established to provide an authentic interpretation of the history of the cattle industry and its impact on the growth and prosperity of the City of Fort Worth. Previous year's event funds were utilized to support the Herd's educational programming which serviced over 17,000 school children last year, as well as the purchase of a new trailer to safely transport livestock for special appearances.
- Friends of Cowtown Coliseum - provides funding for the restoration of the Historic Cowtown Coliseum. Last year's funds provided funding for the historic timeline and legendary Bill Pickett memorabilia that is now on display for guests inside Cowtown Coliseum.
The evening will feature dinner, complimentary beer & wine, musical entertainment by Cowtown Opry, silent and live auction, Steer Style Bingo appearances by the Fort Worth Herd, memorobelia display by Cowtown Coliseum & more!
