VICTORIA, Texas—For the second straight year, the Bluebonnet Youth Ranch Celebrity Golf Tournament has been canceled.

This was a news release sent out by the tournament’s organizers Friday.

It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the postponement of the 2021 Bluebonnet Youth Ranch Celebrity Golf Tournament. The COVID cases in Victoria are too high to permit an event where many of the activities involve venues where social distancing is not possible. We feel it is our responsibility to protect our volunteers, participants, golfers, athletes and celebrities as much as possible. We hope this situation will improve and allow us to reschedule the tournament for the Spring of 2022. We will honor all current Corporate Sponsorships, Hole Sponsorships, and golfers who have already registered when the tournament is rescheduled. We hope to have a new date locked in within the next few weeks and we will notify you of that date as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

The annual Bluebonnet Youth Ranch Celebrity Golf Tournament is the largest fundraiser for the Ranch and the biggest single event that goes to fund operational expenses. Postponement of this tournament leaves a gap in our revenue. To help fill this gap, we will have a RAFFLE and SILENT AUCTION. The Silent Auction will include on-line bidding accessible through the following website will begin Monday, September 20th, 2021 and end at 9 pm on Monday, October 11th, 2021. Winners will be contacted the next day. Raffle tickets were sent out to those on our mailing list last week. Additional tickets can be purchased by contacting Micah Roth at 361-772-2199. If you wish to make a monetary gift it can be sent to BYR, P.O. Box 90, Yoakum, TX 77995 or you can donate on line at Drawing for raffle prizes will be live on Facebook on Monday, October 11th at 12:00 Noon. You can follow Bluebonnet Youth Ranch’s Facebook page to watch the drawing.

Although the festivities have changed, the cause has not. Here at Bluebonnet Youth Ranch, we are striving to provide children and their mothers with a safe place to call home during trying times and to help them grow into outstanding members of the community. Your support through the years has been outstanding and we cannot thank you enough. We THANK YOU for your continued support and loyalty to our cause here at the Bluebonnet Youth Ranch. We hope you will be able to attend the rescheduled tournament in the Spring of 2022 and we look forward to seeing you then.”
