Event Recap

Steer Style Bingo

Thursday, August 25

Thursday, August 25, more than 80 professionals and community leaders attended SMPS Fort Worth’s inaugural Steer Style Bingo event, benefiting the Fort Worth Herd and Make-A-Wish North Texas. Guests enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and music by Texas Country music artist Cody Gill while playing a life size game of Bingo with Rojo, Norman and Rusty (three Texas longhorns) at the Cowtown Coliseum. Read more about how Steer Style Bingo works here.

After no more than ten minutes, Rojo, Norman and Rusty each made their “Bingo contributions” in their individual pens and we had our winners! Due to the overwhelming popularity of the game, we held one final Bingo game at the end of the night. Bingo winners and raffle winners were able to choose from a number of goodies, thanks to our generous prize donors.
