RUTLEDGE DAY AT THE RODEO WELCOMES 263 BUCKAROOS

This year’s Rutledge Day at the Rodeo, sponsored by MODCO Insurance and Del Frisco’s, was a perfect day for all. For those who got up and out early, a light breakfast was served at the Museum of Science and History, followed by a quick walk, or ride in a golf cart, to Will Roger’s Coliseum for the morning performance of the Fort Worth Rodeo. After an amazing morning, everyone moseyed back to the museum for a full spread of barbecue and all the fixins. Thank you Gary Ray, Greg Kalina and the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo for organizing such an awesome day for our 263 patients and their guests!

YOUNG ADULT NIGHT AT THE RANGER GAME, ANOTHER HOME RUN

Thanks to MLB’s Commissioner’s Initiative and the Ryan Foundation, the Rutledge Foundation hosted 56 fans at its 5th annual Young Adult Night at the Ranger Game. With a sunny, 93 degree start, the Rangers were hot early against the Seattle Mariners, smoking them 10-4 in the end. After a full night of baseball and ballpark treats, young adult fans enjoyed an up close fireworks display to synchronized music. The young adult group is looking forward to something cool to do in August. Brenda will be in touch!
