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

The Cowboys and 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 and Cowboys Sky Ranch Gala support the ministry and the Scholarship Gift Program, which provide 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.

Thank you to our 2021 Honorary Celebrity Chairs


Rodeo Cowboy Chair, Ty Murray

Nicknamed “King of the Cowboys”, Ty Murray is the most accomplished Roughstock Athlete in the century-long history of the sport. Before turning 18, Murray grabbed three titles: All-Around and Bareback in the National High School Rodeo Association and Senior Men’s All-Around in the National Little Britches Rodeo Association. Ty competed in the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA) while attending Odessa College, breaking all records in its Rodeo Program. In 1988, as a professional, he won the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Overall and Bareback Rookie of the Year titles. At 20, Ty became the youngest rider ever to win the PRCA All-Around World Championship. He then set his sights on bull riding in the National Finals Rodeo (NFR), quickly grabbing a win in its All-Around Competition. He was a founding member of the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) in 1992. Ty earned a record-breaking seventh All-Around World Championship title in 1998. He then went on to win the 1999 PBR Finals and finished as the reserve PBR Bud Light Cup World Champion the next three years. Ty was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in 2000. Now retired from competition, he spends much of his time on his 2,800-acre private ranch in Stephenville, Texas with his family. Ty and his wife, Paige, are excited to impact lives and raise funds for the ministry of Sky Ranch.

Dallas Cowboys Chair, Drew Pearson

Former Dallas Cowboys’ wide receiver and legend, Drew Pearson, spent an impressive 11 seasons (1973-1983) with the Cowboys. Drew was known as “Mr. Clutch” for his many game-winning catches, including the Hail Mary reception from Roger Staubach in a NFL Playoff game in 1975. He was a critical piece of the Cowboys’ success. Drew played in the Super Bowl three times, including winning Super Bowl XII. Named to the NFL All-Decade Team of the 1970s Drew earned a niche as one of the top clutch receivers in football history. During his outstanding career, Drew was also named one of the Top 20 NFL AII-Time Wide Receivers and selected All-Pro three times ( 1974, 1976, and 1977). He has also received numerous inductions including: Tulsa University Athletics Hall of Fame (1985), New Jersey Sports Hall of Fame (2001), Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame (2008), Texas Sports Hall of Fame (2011), and the Cowboys Ring of Honor (2011). He was recently selected as the senior finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2021. Drew is excited to make the Sky Ranch 2021 Cowboys & Cowboys Gala the best ever!
