The Junior League’s Grand Entry Gala is back
December 22, 2021 (Fort Worth, TX) – Dust off your dancing boots and put on your hat to kick off the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo on Saturday, January 8, 2022. Join the Junior League of Fort Worth (JLFW) for its annual Grand Entry Gala to be held once again “on the dirt” at the Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum.
Celebrate Fort Worth’s western heritage with an evening of fun and fundraising featuring a silent auction, dinner, dancing, and live music by Country Music Academy Award winning entertainers Maddie and Tae. The event will also showcase and acknowledge the 2022 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo’s annual Stock Show Art Contest winners during a scholarship presentation and auction of their art.
“The Junior League of Fort Worth celebrates the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo with Grand Entry Gala. Guests will enjoy a night of cocktails and community support to kickoff rodeo season!” said Elizabeth Knuckley, President of JLFW.
