A little about the Kowboy Krewe…
The Kowboy Krewe Foundation began as a group of good friends who traveled every year to ski in Red River, New Mexico for Mardi Gras in the Mountains. We started an official ‘Krewe’ for their annual celebration and grew our membership year after year. In January 2014, one of the original Krewe members was diagnosed with a very rare Cancer. Kowboy Krewe member, Ralph Baisden, shortly passed away only 4 short months later. This was something so unexpected, none of us could have ever imagined it happening to our friends, let alone our Krewe member. This is when our Krewe of friends grew even closer. With the help of all the Krewe members, family, friends, even friends of friends, and complete strangers, our first event raised over $50,000 dollars in one night alone. It could not have been possible without the help of so many caring people. This is when we realized we had the ability and means to do this for others less fortunate. Losing our KOWBOY RALPH changed our lives in more ways than we ever thought possible, and we believe he is looking down proudly, knowing we are supporting others.
