The Let’s Rodeo Ball is a major fundraising event for the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo Scholarship Fund. Set in an upscale country western style, this party features top entertainment, gourmet food and dancing.

This event certainly is fun for both rodeo fans and everyone from the Greater San Antonio area. The performing artists of the night were Gary Allan, Neal McCoy and Bret Mullins.

The San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo has grown to be one of the largest events, possible with the except of Fiesta, with as many as two million visitors each year.*  It is one of the top PRCA (Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association) rodeos in the nation.

The San Antonio Livestock Exposition, Inc. was established with the mission “A volunteer organization that emphasizes agriculture and education to develop the youth of Texas”. The focus on educating the youth of Texas lead to integrating 4-H and FFA high school students and making educational commitments to support their interest in the agricultural and livestock industry. In 1984, the scholarship program began when fifteen, four-year scholarships totaling $90,000 to were awarded to students entering Texas colleges in the fall. Since then, the organization has committed more than $171.4 million to the youth of Texas through scholarships, grants, endowments, junior livestock auctions, youth western art auction, calf scramble program and show premiums.**
