Silver Dollar at the Ranch began in 2008 as a philanthropic event to help raise funds for cancer research and programs on both local and national spectrums. This year, Silver Dollar at the Ranch will benefit Speedway Children’s Charities of Texas and raise much needed funds to help support the pediatric cancer research initiatives of Mary Crowley Cancer Research Center in Dallas.
Centered in north Texas, the outdoor “Party with a Purpose” has raised over $1 million dollars in five years and there is little chance of it slowing down. Ranch owners, Mardi and Chip Ferrier, generously donate and host Silver Dollar at the Ranch year after year on their beautiful XO Ranch in Aubrey, Texas. This party in the pasture includes annual partnerships with Eddie Deen’s catering company, Dallas’ own III Forks restaurant, entertainers like Tracy Lawrence, Tracy Byrd, Neal McCoy, Joe Diffie and Jack Ingram; appearances by local and national celebrities who generously join us to help make a difference; live and silent auctions that include one of a kind items that cannot be found anywhere else; midway games that give the State Fair of Texas a run for their money, and so much more.
Country music artist Chris Cagle will headline the 6th annual Silver Dollar at the Ranch event presented by Prime Lending, a PlainsCapital Company, on Saturday, May 18. Cagle’s professional accomplishments include two gold albums, two No. 1 albums and 12 charted songs. His sixth full-length album Back in the Saddle (2012) pays tribute to his wife and his life as a family man with three young daughters.
Texas natives Brendan Higgins and LeeAnne Locken will emcee the event. Brendan co-anchors CBS 11 News This Morning with Adrienne Bankert weekdays, and this will be his third time as emcee to Silver Dollar at the Ranch. Joining us for the first time as emcee, LeeAnne is a host for Beautiful You on TXA21, an anchor of Reality Times TV, and host of the Plano News and Eye on Plano.
Two-time Dallas Cowboy Super Bowl champion and Pro-Bowler Tony Casillas serves as the official event Honorary Chairman – we call ‘em the Trail Boss – for Silver Dollar at the Ranch.
