Reba earned rave reviews on Broadway for playing Annie Oakley in Annie Get Your Gun in 2001. Now the Annie Oakley Society in her native Oklahoma is giving Reba their annual award. Reba has been selected for the honor because of her leadership abilities and her pioneering work as a professional woman. The Annie Oakley Society also points to Reba’s ongoing commitment to charity work as part of the honor.
The Annie Oakley Society is affiliated with the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, and seeks to raise awareness about outstanding women of the West. They’ve raised nearly $2 million so far to that end.
