The Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) is the oldest women’s sports organization in the country. The Association started in 1948 with a group of Texas ranch women who wanted to add a little color and femininity to the rough-and-tumble sport of rodeo. A major move at the time, 38 women met in a hotel in San Angelo, Texas, on February 28, 1948, to change the way they were being treated in the male-dominated world of rodeo. These women banded together to create the very first professional sports association created solely for women by women – the Girls Rodeo Association (GRA).
The GRA began with 74 original members with 60 approved contests with a total payout of $29,000. In 1981, the GRA changed its name to the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA). Today, the association boasts more than 3,000 members, over 1,500 events and payouts totaling over $5 million.
The WPRA, headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colorado, provides opportunities for women across the United States and Canada to compete in the timed events of barrel racing, team roping, breakaway roping, and tie-down roping.
In March of 1995, a group of people from across the western United States created the Working Ranch Cowboys Association. WRCA produces the World Championship Ranch Rodeo as a means to showcase the skills of the working ranch cowboy and to raise funds for the WRCA Foundation.
Cattle Barons’ Ball is Oklahoma’s largest single night fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. It is a night of fun, food, music, drinks, dancing and more but the mission is never lost. It is why we are there. Last year, a SOLD OUT crowd came together and exceeded all expectations through their generosity. At the end out the night, our fundraising goal was not only met, it was exceeded by nearly 100K!
Since the inception of the Southeast Texas Cattle Baron’s Ball 34 years ago, so much progress has been made in the fight to end cancer.
Today, there are nearly 17 million cancer survivors living largely due to the life-saving breakthroughs and treatments funded by ACS (that’s a 33% drop in cancer deaths since 1991). Let’s create millions more while also minimizing the financial burden of many local families dealing with this horrific disease.
Our event is November 11, Veteran’s Day, therefore our theme, a Star-Spangled Night, will pay tribute to veterans. Southeast Texas has never seen such a patriotic party!
Please support our efforts! Buy a table. Sponsor a special event or a pig! Yes, a pig. We’re racing pigs during the event! Buy a raffle ticket for a chance to win $10,000 or support our restricted gift program directly putting aid in the hands of Southeast Texas cancer patients.
The Cattle Baron’s Ball Star Spangled Night is Southeast Texas’ way of contributing to this results-oriented effort and your opportunity to honor the journey of those who have battled cancer – the ones we still hold tightly and the ones we hold in our hearts.
