In 1989, Down Home Ranch, Inc. became officially 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. With a birthday as important as the big 3-0, a celebration as big as Texas must be in order!
The 16th annual Down Home Ranch Gala kicks off at 5pm on Saturday, September 21st with a complimentary happy hour (two comp drinks/ticket) and appetizers for all to enjoy. There will be fun fair games to keep you entertained while you browse and bid on the silent auction items. Local musicians, the Blake Torrey Band, will be playing tunes and welcome all to the dance floor.
It would not be a true Down Home County Fair without amazing food! Urban Cowboy Southern Fusion is working up a savory dinner menu that is sure to delight. Be sure and save room for dessert too!
After dinner, the night's main event will be filled with an exciting live auction and the premiere of a brand new DHR video! More live music, dancing and prizes will round out your special evening.
Don’t miss out on fun for the whole family! If you’re not already set on going to the fair, all proceeds from this event will go towards empowering the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities through social, educational, residential and vocational opportunities! Let’s stir up some fun at the Down Home County Fair!
The 2019 Gala is officially sold out, but there's still an opportunity for you to donate towards the cause.
