Dancing to the Stars raises $54,498 for NCTC Foundation, Bowie Rotary

Published

on

Dancing to the Stars returned to the stage Saturday night with seven couples vying for the mirror ball trophy and raising funds for scholarships and charitable projects.
More than 300 people attended the dinner and evening dancing competition. The audience was pumped up and vocal as the dancers took to the stage showing off hip hop, cha cha and the waltz.
This event was last presented in 2019 and stopped due to the pandemic. It first began in 2014 as a fundraiser for the North Central Texas College Bowie Foundation for scholarships for students and Bowie Rotary and its charitable projects. A total of $54,498 was raised.
Joseph Delgado and his wife Shayla won the trophy. Votes are cast by donating money in the name of each dancer and the couple also raises money. Their high energetic “Tootsie Roll” dance opened the show. Each couple had a two-minute routine.
Erick Steinkopff and Christie Craddock received the People’s Choice Award. Their catchy diner-themed cha-cha routine to “Made You Look” drew loud cheers as it ended the show.

Joe Caballero

Joe Caballero, pastor of the Montague County Cowboy Church, has been selected as the Jim Bowie Day’s Parade Grand Marshal. He and his wife Angela have two children, Ethan and Riley.
The couple moved to Sunset in 2001 and he joined MCCC in 2007. In 2008 he was made associate pastor under Walter Haynie. When Haynie retired in 2010 Caballero became pastor of the cowboy church.
Caballero reflects on a varied past career where he worked as a design engineer for some of the biggest companies in the United States.
He helped design and manufacture automobiles, busses, heavy equipment and some of the most sophisticated aircraft in the aerospace industry. Caballero also has worked as a cowboy for ranches in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado.
When asked about his accomplishments for this story, Caballero humbly says he has not accomplished or achieved anything worth talking about. However, he is quick to talk about his faith and that path he has taken.
“Accomplishment: If I have ever put a smile on someone’s face, brought joy to their hearts, encourage, a sense of peace, help resort their faith, if I have helped someone through a tough time, if I had the chance to introduce someone to Jesus, then I have accomplished something,” he said.
Caballero added he loves people and being involved in community outreach making people smile, laugh and being of service to others.
