National Cutting Horse Association Makes Huge Donation

The Careity Foundation® announced that the NCHA has once again provided the use of the Will Rogers Coliseum and the Round Up Inn, for the annual Careity Celebrity Cutting to be held on Friday Dec. 1 at 7:00 p.m. Many NCHA staff and members are also involved as volunteers.

It takes several volunteers, horse trainers, horse owners, celebrity participants, plus a cattle donation and much more to get this show on the road. Not having major expenses helps Careity take care of more cancer patients and save more lives.

Tom Watson, Jay Novacek, Bob Kingsley, Midland, Trent Willmon, Josh Weathers, Sonny Burgess, Jolie Holiday Burgess, Frank Hannon and Yoenis Cespedes. In all, there are more than 20 celebrity participants when you count riders and concert performers.

Careity Foundation provides more than 7,000 patient services annually for cancer patients and early detection in Tarrant, Parker, Johnson, Hood and Palo Pinto counties.

The Careity Celebrity Cutting allows Careity to reach annual financial goals. By optimizing every dollar, Careity has an impact of greater than $7.5 million dollars annually for direct patient services locally.

“[The] NCHA is such a blessing to this community. Their support has enabled Careity to save hundreds of lives through the years. It has also helped Careity to become one of the top non-profits in North Central Texas,” said Lyn Walsh and Beverly Branch, co-founders of Careity Foundation®.

General Admission tickets are $20 to the Cutting or $150 for the Cutting and Reserved Seats at the Celebrity Concert following. Order tickets online at www.careity.org or call 817.994.0201.
