SCC Texas Gears Up for 10th Anniversary of Silver Dollar at the Ranch
On May 20th, the Texas Chapter of Speedway Children's Charities (SCC) will host the tenth annual Silver Dollar at the Ranch. Every dollar donated from this country western event benefits children that are battling cancer in the DFW area. This year's Silver Dollar grant beneficiaries are a Wish with Wings, ManeGait Therapeutic Horsemanship and Mary Crowley Cancer Research Center. Hosts Chip and Mardi Ferrier bring hundreds of Dallas denizens and do-gooders to XO Ranch in Aubrey every year for a raucous and rowdy night of dancing, dinner, games, a silent auction and a, well, not-so-silent auction. The live music will keep you groovin' and movin' 'til the early morning, and as headliner and country music artist Neal McCoy sings, you'll be making a difference—there's "No Doubt About It."
McCoy makes his return to the Silver Dollar stage for the event, which starts at 6:30 p.m. and runs through midnight. NBC 5's Kris Gutierrez will co-emcee the event alongside TV personality Dawn Neufeld. XO Ranch is located at 7701 Bull Run, in Aubrey, Texas. Individual tickets are $150, and tables (10 tickets) are available for $1,500. Sponsorships start at $3,000, and are still available through the event's website.
Since its inception in 2008, the Silver Dollar at the Ranch event (formerly the Silver Dollar Ball) has raised over $2.25 million dollars for cancer research and programs on both the local and national level. This year's event theme, "Wanted: a CURE for Cancer," will continue to honor the Texas legacy and cowboys, rustlers and wranglers who once roamed the same land where XO Ranch now rests. Before McCoy takes the stage to serenade the saloon of charitable supporters, young country crooner Madeline Enna will rile up the crowd as the opening act.
