Ropin’ Dreams is able to present children with their dreams due to the support from generous companies here in South Texas, which always step up and assist in providing the Dreams. For example, prior to the rodeo, each child goes on a shopping spree to Cavender’s and is outfitted from head to toe in cowboy gear. So that each child may go in style to the rodeo, Elegant Transportation provides limo service to the venue. A dream that would cost several thousand dollars is actually realized for much less because of the support of our sponsors.
In 2017 Ropin’ Dreams applied for and was sanctioned by the PRCA to hold the Ropin’ Dreams PRCA Rodeo held in Jourdanton, TX. Over the past three years, we have grown this into a “community event” in the Jourdanton/Pleasanton, Texas area. We will be back on May 7 & 8, 2021, with a bigger and better rodeo and bringing back the ever-popular “Mutton Bustin” as well. Proceeds from the event will provide dreams for the children of Ropin’ Dreams.
Ropin’ Dreams has one fund raiser per year. The Celebrity Cowboy Golf Tournament was our major fundraiser. This year we plan to incorporate a team roping in order to increase proceeds. The Ranch Rodeo that takes place during this gathering is the last qualifying rodeo for the South Texas Ranch Rodeo Finals held every year during the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo.
Ropin’ Dreams is strictly a volunteer program and all Directors/Members donate 100% of their time. Less than 1% of revenue funds administrative costs.
Please contact us about contributions or in-kind donations. Without our sponsors, we would not be able to make dreams come true.
Anyone can refer a child—a family member, friend, nurse or social worker. Please provide as much information as possible including what the child’s dream might be. Please leave your contact information in the event we are not able to contact the family directly. Our criteria are as follows:
• 4 – 18 Years of Age
• Medical eligibility
• Agricultural background or a genuine interest in rodeo or in America’s western heritage.
• Child must be submitting his first dream.
