Bolo Ball Chance to Glimpse Cowboy Hall Addition


Gilmore, Joan, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The new Western State Plaza at the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center will be the setting Friday, Sept. 16, for the 1994 Bolo Ball. All of you who have been just dying to see what the new east wing addition to the hall looks like will have your chance at this fabulous party.

Highlighting the Bolo Ball will be country music superstar Ricky Skaggs and the opening of a new exhibition, "Don't Fence Me In: Photography by David Stoecklein."

This outdoor, wear-your-best-Western-duds party, one of the hall's major fund raisers, will begin with the viewing of the exhibit at 7:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 8:30 p.m. and entertainment at 9 p.m. Dinner will be served on the plaza from a real chuckwagon by Tom Perini's catering group from Buffalo Gap, Texas. (You just can't hardly get more Western than that, pardner!)

Opening the show after dinner will be Alvin Crow and the Pleasant Valley Boys, who will be followed by Skaggs and his eight-man Kentucky Thunder Band. Crow and his musicians will be remembered as playing great country and Western music at the 1991 Bolo Ball. Crow began his career with the Oklahoma Symphony Orchestra as the youngest violinist to play with the group.

When Skaggs was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1982 he was its 61st member and the youngest at the time. In 1993, he was cited among Musician magazine's Top 10 Guitarists of the 20th Century. In addition to touring, he has a weekly syndicated radio series, "Simple Life With Ricky Skaggs," heard on nearly 400 radio stations in the United States and 29 countries.

Stoecklein's love for the cowboy life has helped earn him international acclaim for his photographic portrayals of the lifestyle in the American West.

Tickets for the Bolo Ball evening are $45 per person. A limited number of tickets are available on a first-come basis.

Git along, lil' doggie! ! ! Seems like Oklahoma's really getting into country for its benefits this fall.

Another country music superstar, Lee Greenwood, will headline the Oklahoma Country Evening II benefit for the Burn Center at Baptist Medical Center on Saturday, Nov. 19. This super party is among the multitude being scheduled in the new Special Events Center, which will open in October at the National Cowboy Hall of Fame and Western Heritage Center.

(Some will remember that the first Oklahoma Country Evening was held out of doors, and Mother Nature was not kindly at all!)

Greenwood, known for his patriotism, has been honored by the Boy Scouts, the American Congressional Medal of Honor Society, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion for his efforts to make Americans a proud people. …
