HOW IT STARTED
Owner, Big Easy Ranch
Even though Billy Brown, owner of Big Easy Ranch, is originally from Louisiana, his heart is as big as Texas.
Years ago, Brown was a vibrant healthy man when his world came crashing down after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. When the word, "cancer" came out of the doctor's mouth, Billy could not believe what he was hearing. He decided to fight the good fight. Through persistence, education and the wonderful doctors at MD Anderson Cancer Center, Billy proudly overcame prostate cancer!
As Billy quickly learned, each one of us is affected by cancer in some way. So, Billy decided to give back to the cancer community and help the doctors and research scientists who helped save his life. Through The Billy Brown Charitable Foundation, Billy invited Members of Big Easy Ranch to join him in achieving his goal. Thus, in 2018, the inaugural Big Easy Ranch Shoot Out was launched.
This high profile tournament began as a 9-hole golf tournament combined with a 10-station sporting clay competition along with a raffle, wine dinner and live auction with guest speakers. The pandemic led to a two year hiatus in 2020 and 2021, but the tournament was relaunched in 2022 with $400,000 raised for cancer research.
With a great Board of Advisors and a heart for fundraising, Big Easy Ranch Members, their corporate sponsorships along with their guests have raised more than $1.3M in the first four years of The Big Easy Ranch Shoot Out with $425,000 raised in 2023 alone!
In 2023, the tournament was reinvented with an 18-hole golf tournament on The Covey and a separate sporting clay tournament both combined with a raffle, wine dinner and live auction with honorable guest speakers.
Please join us and take part in this important event as a sponsor, donor or tournament participant.
All proceeds from this fundraising event go directly to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center - Department of Immunology.
