This year, Boys Town Texas youth and families were able to attend the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo thanks to the event's generous donation of 100 tickets to Boys Town Texas.

"So many of our families live in the city and don't have the opportunity to see cows, pigs and horses," said Joyce Horner, Boys Town Texas Development Director. "At the Stock Show, they have a petting zoo, play areas with child-size farm implements and areas to learn to rope animals, saddle horses and so much more. We were blessed to be given so many tickets! Our families had an amazing time."

The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has grown to be one of the largest, most prestigious single events in the city. With over two million visitors entering the grounds each year, this event has donated more than $171.4 million to the youth of Texas through scholarships, grants, endowments, junior livestock auctions, youth western art auctions, calf scramble programs and show premiums.

Donations from outstanding community partners like the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo help create lifelong memories for our youth and families every day, and for that we are eternally grateful.
