Fort Worth, TX – Celebrate Fort Worth’s western heritage with an evening of fun and fundraising featuring a silent auction, dinner, dancing, and live music! Grand Entry Gala is excited to present six legendary artists for an evening that you won’t forget. Ray Benson, Roger Creager, Radney Foster, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jack Ingram, and Gary P. Nunn will be rocking Will Rogers with a non-stop list of hits.

“The Junior League of Fort Worth is excited to celebrate the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo with our 11th annual Grand Entry Gala. There is no better way to kick off rodeo season, and this year will be one to remember with six artists headlining at Will Rogers Memorial Coliseum. We hope you’ll join us for this festive evening of community, tradition, and music!” said Robin Greenhaw, JLFW President.

This year, the JLFW will recognize Betsy Price, former mayor of Fort Worth, as the Honorary Chair of Grand Entry Gala. Mrs. Price, a Sustaining Member of the JLFW, has dedicated much of her life to serving the Fort Worth community and has served on numerous boards, commissions, and professional organizations. She began her career as a public servant in 2001 as the Tarrant County Tax Assessor-Collector, and then served as the 44th mayor of Fort Worth from 2011 to 2021.

Since its inception, Grand Entry Gala has raised more than $2 million, which has enabled JLFW to invest directly into the community. In 2023-2024, JLFW will provide over $175,000 in grants and sponsorships to the Fort Worth community.
