Join our WALK OF STARS! You and the Oaks!
On Wednesday, June 18th, The Oak Ridge Boys have a special event in Branson, Missouri. They are walking from The Oak Ridge Boys Theatre to the new Skaggs Pediatric Unit and Skaggs Cancer Center – then, onto Branson Landing. The walk is approximately 2 miles, beginning at 10:30 AM with a refreshment break at Skaggs Community Health Center provided by Texas Land & Cattle Company. The walk will terminate at the Towne Square in Branson Landing. A special lunch (at a reduced price) will be available for all at the Texas Land & Cattle Company so you can eat with the Stars!
You can lunch with the Oak Ridge Boys and all the stars. The first 100 walkers that have collected more than $100 in pledges will receive a ticket to see the world famous Oak Ridge Boys here in Branson. Pledge packets may be picked up at The Oak Ridge Boys Theatre. All monies raised will go to the Skaggs Foundation as a gift to the new Skaggs Pediatric Unit and Skaggs Cancer Center.
Skaggs Community Health Center is a 165-bed community-owned and supported healthcare facility dedicated to improving the health of all area residents. Skaggs holds the highest national accreditation available for medical facilities from the Joint Commission.
