With the Olympics kicking off this Friday, Starlight Ranch is doing a very Olympic thing...a benefit for Special Olympics!

Let's be honest, when the Olympics come around, we see the best of country pride come out in all of us. We do good things for each other, we talk about how we're kicking everyone's backside up and down in medal count and generally were just in a giving mood.

Well the Special Olympics is something near and dear to my heart. I've been a volunteer for them in the past and it was such a rewarding experience for me. Well Starlight Ranch is getting in on supporting these athletes in their quest for the gold.

Saturday, July 24th at Starlight Ranch it's FAVFest 2021 "Battle of the Gyms", and proceeds are benefitting the Special Olympics of the TX Panhandle. This is going to be a big family friendly event including food trucks, a comedian, live music a silent auction and so much more!

For you horseshoe enthusiasts, there will be a tourney held that will benefit the family of Cindy Jayroe from Rumors. Bring that competitive spirit with you!

Doors will be opening for the event at 3pm with the music kicking off around 4pm. Lone Star Skynyrd, Cleto Rodriguez and DJ T-Floyd are all slated to perform and give you something to dance to and singalong with.

Tickets are $15 and will benefit Special Olympics. You can purchase your tix here. Even if you can't make the event and want to help support, feel free to buy a ticket or two anyway.

A fun filled day for the family awaits, and the Special Olympics will thank you for their support. See ya there!
