Saddle Up For The Cowboy Ball

The dust is starting to gather on the horizon as those doggies get a little closer….and are those Boca cowboys bringing them in? Yessiree, they are and that means the Cowboy Ball is only weeks away.

Now in its 26th year, the annual Cowboy Ball benefitting the George Snow Scholarship Fund cranks up on Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. at Mizner Park Amphitheater. And tickets to this very popular event are going fast. Why? After a gauntlet of black-tie galas and stuffy sit-down dinners, the Cowboy Ball is all jeans and boots and hats and kicking back with a cold one. There is a whiskey tasting, mechanical bull, square dancing and more—Spanx optional.

This year’s Cowboy Ball will recognize both Cendyn and John C. Tolbert; it is hosted by Samantha and Cliff Vassallo. Proceeds will benefit Boca’s beloved charity, the George Snow Scholarship Fund, which sends hardworking kids in need to college. The Fund has grown steadily over the years and is now a much-admired charity with a stellar program that helps support kids, even once they are safely installed in school.

So dust off those boots, let your hair down and come on out to the best party this month (and one of the best of the year!) as the Mizner Park Amphitheater turns into the OK Corral. (Without the gunfight.) Tickets are $175, and you can get more information or buy your tickets by calling 561/347-6799.
