YEE-HAW! LET’S GIDDY UP TO CELEBRATE THE BEST IN THE WEST!
Back in 1989 Down Home Ranch, Inc. officially became recognized by the State of Texas. What was once a dream of opportunity for people with disabilities has since turned into a thriving organization that fosters community, fuels social enterprise and inspires joy for people with and without disabilities. Over 32 years later we are serving more individuals than ever before, which calls for a celebration as big as Texas!
The annual Down Home Ranch Gala kicks off on Saturday, September 18th at 5pm at the historic Coupland Dance Hall & Inn. Top Texas and national country artists perform at this venue all the time, including Robert Earl Keen and The Bellamy Brothers. The dance hall has been the backdrop of countless music videos for famous artists, including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Pat Green and Kevin Fowler. Coupland Dance Hall owner, Abbey Road, will be serving up her own recipe of delicious Texas pit BBQ with mouthwatering sides that will delight your tastebuds (we hope you like Brisket!).
Live music, raffle prizes, online silent auction and in-person live auction are a few of the other excitements you will experience on this special evening. If you’re not already set on going, the proceeds from this event will go towards empowering the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities for many years to come! Let’s stirrup some fun at Wild Wild Ranch: DHR’s 18th Annual Gala while we celebrate Down Home’s Most Wanted!
