Ranch Day

Share a day of family-friendly fun, music, and food with us at our annual Ranch Day, and help support the Boys Ranch all year long.

What is Ranch Day?

Our one-of-a-kind annual fundraiser

Every year—typically in late October—we welcome sponsors and members of our community to the Boys Ranch to share in a day of family-friendly fun, music, and food. Ranch Day has evolved into our biggest fundraiser, and covers a significant portion of the expenses we factor into our budget for the next calendar year. However, Ranch Day has also become an exciting, rewarding event that everyone at the Ranch looks forward to and enjoys. Whether you're a veteran of previous Ranch Days or a first-time visitor, we hope you'll join us at the next Ranch Day to meet our boys, learn more about our facility, and celebrate the many precious hearts and lives that have been forever transformed here. Donations are welcome and encouraged.

History of Ranch Day

How it All Began

The concept of Ranch Day has been around since the Boys Ranch itself originated in 1979. Founder Jim Yohe dreamed of setting aside one day a year to host a homecoming of friends and supporters at the Ranch. There would be plenty of food and fellowship, displays of the boys’ productivity, and exhibits showcasing the Ranch and its facilities. After a lot of planning and effort, Ranch Day became a reality and has only gotten bigger and better since.

Ranch Day remains a beloved annual tradition. Every year, we're delighted to have several hundred friends, supporters, and neighbors come by to spend the day with us. Ranch Day has become a staple of wholesome, uplifting entertainment for our local community because our guests always know they can expect great food and lots of family-friendly activities, including horseback riding, gospel singing, wagon rides, and a petting zoo for the children.
