The mission of the Cowpoke Foundation is to preserve and promote the American cowboy heritage. Our premier event is the Cowpoke Fall Gathering where cowboy poetry, music and story telling reinforce the "cowboy way" at the heart of western traditions. Educational programs in local schools and youth performances at The Fall Gathering ensure that this heritage continues by exposing young people to these oral folk art forms.
100% of the proceeds from the 2013 Cowpoke Fall Gathering will go to local charities.
This years beneficiaries are:
- Ride to Walk: A therapeutic horseback riding program for neurologically disabled children. Located in Lincoln, CA.
