10th Annual Ropin' Pen Party and Celebrity Roping
06-03-2015

This year marks the tenth anniversary of the first Trent Willmon Ropin' Pen Party in 2005. What started as a fan club party and a little dummy roping in a parking lot at Judge Bean's Barbeque has turned into an annual event raising thousands of dollars for charity while giving away many buckles and other prizes to the contestants. Both professional and amateur ropers come from all over the country, IWC Aquatimer Replica Watches teaming up with celebrities to head and heel in a dummy roping that has become a much talked- about event every year. Many of the celebrities share their talents onstage afterwards, singing their hits and donating items for the charity auction. A few of the celebs in recent years have included Daryl Singletary, Chris Stapleton, Wade Hayes, Cody Johnson, Justin McBride and Tom McMilllan to name just a few. In the past years it had been held during CMA Fest, however this year the decision was made to have it later in the summer avoid the crowds and have more time to allow the artists to perform music. It will be held at the beautiful Jaeckle Center in Thompson's Station, TN, on Sunday July 19, roping starting at 4pm. There will be drinks and food available for purchase. Among the artists who have comfirmed are Singletary, Johnson, and Hayes, as well as last year's celebrity champion Brice Long and of course the host, Trent Willmon. A special thanks goes to Michelle Burns for her hard work on this project, and for all the volunteers, artists, sponsors, fans, and ropers who have donated auction items, their talents, and funds to help raise money for charity. This year we are once again raising money for soldiers; and the charity is Wishes For Warriors. For more information on this great organization, visit http://wishesforwarriorscorp.org/.
