Saddle up for the Cowboy Ball!

It’s countdown time now to the big rodeo, that big little dogies round-up on the Intracoastal, the hoedown showdown—one and only Caribbean Cowboy Ball this Saturday night, January 30 at Red Reef Park. This party has become a Boca favorite—no tuxes, no tiaras, no Spanx (well, maybe some Spanx), no formal stuffy banquet with hours of speeches and bad white wine.

Nope, this party is different—with guests encouraged to wear wild West togs (cowboy hats and boots encouraged) or something Caribbean, whatever that means. The cocktail hour and silent auction is under a big tent, there are hors d’oeuvres and fireworks and a great buffet dinner and ice cream bar. There’s music, dancing, hay bales and the whole town shows up.

Which is why you should rustle up a couple of tickets now.

The 23rd Annual Caribbean Cowboy Ball benefits the George Snow Scholarship Fund, which has raised more than $7.3 million in the past 34 years in educational grants to deserving underserved students; last year, the George Snow Scholarship Fund awarded more than $615 to 67 scholars.
