OKC Events: February 26, 2004


Gilmore, Joan, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum has announced some of the celebrities who earned the prestigious Wrangler Awards for achievements in various western ventures.

The Western Heritage Awards banquet is scheduled April 17 at the museum and reservations are $140 per person.

The Outstanding Theatrical Motion Picture Award will go to Open Range, directed by Kevin Costner and starring Robert Duvall, Costner and Annette Bening. (The museum hasn't announced yet whether Costner will be here in person, but we can hope, can't we?) The film was produced by Costner, Jake Eberts and David Valdes. Valdes received a Wrangler Award in 1993 for Unforgiven, starring Clint Eastwood.

The Outstanding Television Feature Film is TNT's Monte Walsh, starring Tom Selleck, Isabella Rossellini, Keith Carradine and George Eads. Selleck won a previous Wrangler and has been a presenter at several of the Western Heritage Awards. Carradine and his brother, Robert Carradine, also in the film, have been presenters, as have been two other stars of the film, William Devane and Barry Corbin. Corbin also is a previous Wrangler Award winner.

Other awardees are 29 Seconds, as the Outstanding Factual or Fictional Drama; Images of Indians: How Hollywood Stereotyped the Native American, as Outstanding Documentary; The Cowboy Way as Outstanding Factual Narrative; Buck Ramsey: Hittin' the Trail as Outstanding Western Music Album, and Chant of the Night Songs, Don Edwards' new song, as Outstanding Original Western Composition.

Sink or swim?

The theme of this year's Heart Ball was Under the Sea.

Six hundred guests watched as proud papas (or otherwise designated escorts) presented the 27 high school ladies wearing very grown-up evening gowns.

The live auction brought more than $100,000 (helped along by the person who purchased for $40,000 a new Volvo donated by Volvo of Oklahoma City). The Brett Mosley Memorial Golf Package (rounds of golf at 12 area courses and a set of custom-fitted Callaway Steelhead X-16 clubs) brought in $10,000. Rowdy, the darling little seven-week-old male Boxer puppy charmed everyone but especially the one who purchased him for $3,000.

The Flashpoint dinner with Mike Turpen and Burns Hargis brought in $3,800. Setting will be the home of Kyle Toal and Susan Chambers. Co-donors, in addition to the hosts and the television stars, were Scott and Debbie Lucas, ball co-chairs, and Ned's Catering. The surprise was the bid for a trip for two to the final four days of the Ryder Cup matches in Michigan. The value was priceless but it only went for $5,000. The Ryder Cup match has been sold out since September 2003 and should have brought a much higher bid.

Presenting sponsor of the Heart Ball was Volvo of Oklahoma City and Platinum sponsor was St. Anthony Hospital. Gold sponsors were Chesapeake Energy and Devon Energy. Silver sponsors were Bob Howard Auto Group, Express Personnel Services, Integris Heart Center, Kerr- McGee, Local Oklahoma Bank, Mercy Health Center/Oklahoma Heart Hospital and OU Medical Center/OU Physicians Group.

Proceeds from the ball will benefit research and educational projects of the American Heart Association and its Oklahoma division.
