Join Cowboys from the football field and Cowboys from the rodeo arena to support Sky Ranch!

The Cowboys & Cowboys Sky Ranch Gala began in 2008 with a heart to impact the lives of youth and families through the ministry of Sky Ranch. Each year, Cowboys from the football field and Cowboys from the rodeo arena join together with individuals, families and businesses to support the ministry of Sky Ranch.

Funds raised at the Cowboys & Cowboys Sky Ranch Gala support the ministry and the Scholarship Gift Program, which provides opportunities for children facing circumstances beyond their control to attend a life-changing week of Summer Camp. Sky Ranch partners with local, North Texas organizations such as New Friends New Life, West Dallas Community School, Interfaith Housing Coalition, Prison Ministry Fellowship, All Things Made New, Reconciliation Outreach and H.I.S. Bridgebuilders to scholarship children who are at-risk, underserved or have an incarcerated parent.

2022 Honorary Celebrity Co-Chairs


Dallas Cowboy Chair, DeMarcus Ware

DeMarcus Ware is widely regarded as one of the greatest defensive players in NFL History, and is projected to be a first-ballot NFL Hall of Fame candidate upon his eligibility this year! Born and raised in Auburn, AL, DeMarcus attended Auburn High School and played baseball, basketball and track, but was not a member of the football team until his junior year. The following season, he earned team MVP honors. DeMarcus went on to Troy University, the only school from which he received a scholarship offer. As a senior, he was the Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year. His 27.5 sacks are 2nd in Troy history and his 57 tackles for a loss is a school record. DeMarcus was selected in the 1st round (11th overall) by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2005 NFL Draft and spent nine seasons with the franchise (2005 -2013). He is the Cowboys’ all-time leader in sacks (117) and forced fumbles (32). DeMarcus was signed by the Denver Broncos in 2014 where he helped lead the team to victory in Super Bowl 50. In March, 2017, after 12 illustrious seasons in the NFL, DeMarcus signed a one day contract with the Dallas Cowboys to retire as a Cowboy. Only hall of famers Reggie White and Lawrence Taylor averaged more sacks per game. He twice received the “Butkus Award” – given to the best linebackers in America who also uphold the responsibility of serving others by giving back. He was also the Dallas Cowboys nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award that is presented annually, honoring a player’s volunteer and charity work, as well as his excellence on the field. DeMarcus is actively involved with a multitude of charitable organizations – particularly those dealing with kids, hunger, and homelessness. He has appeared in numerous TV hosting roles, shows, and competitions, most recently – Dancing With the Stars. Ware is a member of the Troy University Sports Hall of Fame, Senior Bowl Hall of Fame, Alabama Sports Hall of Fame and is set to join the Texas Sports Hall of Fame this August. DeMarcus is Co-Owner of 3VOLT Fitness Studio, located in Trophy Club, as well as Owner / Founder of a Fitness App called “Driven to Win.” DeMarcus is not just a football superstar; he is above all, a man of faith and family. He is a resident of Southlake, TX where he resides with his wife, Angela, two children, Marley and DeMarcus Jr. and Great Dane, Dottie. Despite his humble beginnings, DeMarcus got to the top of his game and is now on hand to motivate you to get to the top of yours.
