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 children and youth through the ministries 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 ministries 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.

In 1978, White was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Year and would go on to be named to nine consecutive All-Pro and Pro Bowl teams. He retired in 1988 having played 209 games in 14 seasons, only missing one game during that span.
