OCA Range Round-Up celebrates 30 years of cowboys and charities

By Jennifer M. Latzke

Don’t let those gruff exteriors fool you.

 

Underneath layers of leather and pearl snap shirts, cowboys have big hearts.

 

If you needed proof of that, you only had to watch the 30th annual Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) Range Round-Up, Aug. 22 and 23 at the Jim Norick Arena in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Twelve teams of ranch cowboys competed for top honors while also raising funds for the Children’s Miracle Network.

 

“2014 will mark the 18th year that our selected charity has been the Children’s Miracle Network,” explained OCA Range Round-Up Committee Chairman Tim Drummond. “In that time, the OCA has donated more than $441,500. We like to call the event, ‘Cowboys Helping Kids.’”

 

Drummond said since its inception, the OCA Range Round-Up has had a history of helping charities in Oklahoma. The work of the Children’s Miracle Network really touches the members of OCA.

 

“When you see those children, and the trials that they’ve had to go through in their short lives, it really kind of touches you,” Drummond said. The committee usually meets one time at the hospital in Oklahoma City to visit children who are directly affected by the organization’s donations. And, on the second day of performances, ranch cowboys and OCA members host some of the Miracle Kids at a simulated ranch rodeo at the arena so they can have a taste of cowboy life. [Read More]
