Much of what we are able to do as an Association is possible because of those who help sponsor special events.  Our ability to help fellow alumni, support our former home and hold reunions would not be possible without the generous contributions of these companies and individuals.  Please express your gratitude and support

   The 2015 DFW Golf Tournament was a tremendous success and some very good work was done by a few to benefit many.

   Seventy-four golfers enjoyed a positively spectacular day of golf as the rains that have blessed the metroplex for weeks, took a day off.  Some dedicated workers gave hours to make the event successful, including Cam Lindsey, Cindy Sarpalius and Al Latchaw, who spent the afternoon assuring any "Holes-in-One" were verified.  LeAnn Rattan and Aubrey Ellington manned the "office" all afternoon and Debbie Rodgers took pictures, interviews, collected signs and whatever else needed to be done.  Current Scholarship recipients Mackinzie Rattand and Tyler Richardson toured the golf course expressing gratitude and giving gifts to all the participants.  Brad Powell's Crazy Cowboy's restaurant catered the event and the food was great.  Two former scholarship recipients helped make the event successful as Jordan Bigony played and Aaron Latchaw helped watch a hole and set things up.

   By far the key to any success of the event was the incredible work of Chuck and Becky Farrell who got over 70 people from all over the country to contribute over $15K to the event.  We are all challenged to envision what we can do to make this event much more successful next year.   

   Over a thousand dollars was generated by the raffle with the winner of the 50-50 raffle contributing his winnings back to the Association (thank you Mr. Rattan).  Over twenty individuals, former Ranchers, and businesses helped sponsor the event and 14 ex-Ranchers either worked or played golf.

   The purpose of the tournament was to raise funds for scholarships.  10% of the net proceeds goes to Crisis Support, 10% to Legacy Partners and 80% to scholarships.  This is the sole fundraiser for the scholarship program.  To date  a little over $10,300 was raised for scholarships.  That is something less than the goal but a tremendous help to meeting our scholarship obligations.  Funds are still being collected and any contribution will be gratefully received.

 Founding Legacy Partners


What is the future of Cal Farley's Alumni Assn.? What will WE accomplish?  What will WE leave behind?  What will be OUR LEGACY?
For every one of us who went to BR or GT, there were 15 or 20 who applied but could not get in. Where are they now?  God knows.  And but for the grace of God and the generosity of others we would probable not be where we are today.  Many of us benefited from the legacy left by others.
Now it's Our Turn to Leave a Legacy!
Boys Ranch was built on the small and consistent gifts of people across the country.  There have been many large gifts and these have been valuable.  But the small and regular gifts have been the food and electric bills for decades.
The Association Legacy Partners Program provides opportunity and encouragement for many of us to be regular consistent supporters of some very important work.  The Scholarships, the Crisis Support, the Reunions and the Support of alumni through Cal Farley's requires regular, consistant support by many partners.
The Founding Legacy Partners are those who contribute at least $1,000 to the Legacy Partners by June 30th, 2015.  All who participate as regular contributors to the work of CFBRAA are Legacy Partners and will be recognized and encouraged at the various levels noted on the All Star Levels tab of this web site.
