‘Rope For The Kids’ Saturday in Edna

Golden Crescent CASA

Crossroads cowboys looking to make a difference will soon have the chance to saddle up for a cause. Rope for the Kids, the seventh annual Golden Crescent Court Appointed Special Advocates team roping, is Saturday at Edna’s Brackenridge Main Event Center, 284 Brackenridge Parkway.

All proceeds benefit Golden Crescent CASA, an organization aimed at helping children picked up by Child Protective Services or those having trouble at home by representing them in court, Richard Meyer, director of Calhoun County CASA, told the Victoria Advocate. “This is a very beneficial organization, and it’s a great way to help,” he said of the event, sponsored by Jackson and Calhoun County CASA groups. “We’re excited.”

Books open at 9 a.m., while the roping begins an hour later. The day kicks off with a No. 9 roping, said Rudy Gutierrez with NA Productions. A live auction, No. 11 roping and No. 13 slide roping follow. A silent auction, biergarten and concession stand also join the mix, Meyer said. Still, that isn’t all. For those looking to prove their culinary capabilities, a cook-off offers something else to the ranks.

Check-in begins at noon Friday, said Glenn Heim, the cook-off chairman, and contestants can compete for jackpot prizes that first night. Meanwhile, judging takes place Saturday. Cook-off registration is $240 for the weekend, Heim said, which includes the camping spot and electricity.

Admission to the roping is free to the public. For more information about the roping, call 361-920-0800 or 361-935-0449. For information about the barbecue cook-off, call 361-215-6077 or 361-987-4000.
