Western Wishes honors and strives to lift the spirits of children and young adults faced with adversity who live and love the western way of life. Highlighting these incredible kids and making them special guests at rodeos, horse shows and country music concerts is our objective. It is the mission of Western Wishes to reward the fighting spirit of courageous kids and share their compelling stories.
The original Western Wishes™, founded in 1994 by Donnalyn Quintana, is hosting a gala event held in conjunction with the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo and Championship Bull Riding World Championships at the Little America Hotel and Event Center in Cheyenne, Wyoming on Saturday, July 21.
The First Annual 8 Seconds To Glory Gala
A Celebration Of Leaving A Legacy The Cowboy Way
Cheyenne, Wyoming July 21, 2012
It will be an “8 Seconds” movie cast reunion with Luke Perry (Lane Frost), Stephen Baldwin (Tuff Hedeman), & more with live entertainment featuring American Idol Finalist, John Wayne Schultz, & Texas Radio Star, Brian Lumley. Enjoy dinner and a private screening of the “What Will You Say?” Western Wishes music video.
8 Seconds To Glory is based on the true story of Lane Frost, who became the youngest rider ever to be nominated into the Rodeo Hall of Fame.
The ties between Western Wishes and the movie “8 Seconds” are many; including the fact that both will be celebrating their 20th Anniversaries in 2014. In addition, they both celebrate the grit, determination, and focus that it takes to meet goals, accomplish more, and survive.
