RAWHIDE BOYS RANCH
Years ago, I had the honor of working for Bart Starr in his real estate development company in Alabama. He and his wife, Cherry were two of the kindest people I ever met in my career. My heart is heavy since learning of his passing last week. Rest in Peace, famous friend and special soul. The world will not soon forget Bart Starr and his efforts with his constant, genuine smile to make the world a better place.
The Starr family co-founded and has supported the Rawhide Boys Ranch in Minnesota for decades, where troubled young men change their lives every year. Bart and Cherry Starr are recipients of the Outstanding Lifetime Philanthropy Award for their efforts, donating all of the proceeds from Bart’s signed autographs (from a famous career in football with the Green Bay Packers), raising awareness and spending time with the boys on the ranch. They lost their own son, Bret Starr, tragically in his teen years and the memorial fund in his name continues to help Rawhide Boys Ranch today.
You can help, too, by donating vehicles, cars, motor homes, RVs, campers or boats to this wonderful organization. You can also donate stocks and other assets. Your donation makes an immediate difference in a young man’s life. They also accept airplanes and industrial equipment which provides work experience in mechanical repairs for the young men.
