‘Yellowstone’ TV Creator Auctioning Off ‘Beer with Rip’ in Fundraiser

by Thad Mitchell

Fans of Paramount Network’s hit television series “Yellowstone” have a chance to make some dreams come true today.

Cariety, a Texas nonprofit charity, is holding a live auction today (Saturday) featuring Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan. Patrons can get in on the action by visiting liveauctions.tv and the auction is expected to begin at 2 p.m. CST. Sheridan will be hosting the live auction that will feature a number of Yellowstone memorabilia as well as a chance to mingle with some of the show’s actors.

Based out of Fort Worth, Texas, Careity says it exists to “provide direct care that saved lives, gives hope, eases pain and allows cancer patients and families to focus on healing.”

One of the premier items up for grabs is a beer with Yellowstone Ranch Hand and all around tough guy Rip Wheeler. On Yellowstone, Rip serves as a ranch foreman and also as a “fixer” of sorts for the Dutton Family.

He handles a lot of dirty work for the family, including doing away with their enemies. Rip certainly appears right at home with getting his hands dirty and more of the same is expected from him in the upcoming fourth season.

Yellowstone Items up for Grabs in Live Auction Today

Veteran actor Cole Hauser handles the role of Rip Wheeler extremely well, making him tough but also giving him just enough of a soft side to make him one of the most lovable characters on the show. Hauser took to social on Saturday to say he is looking forward to having a beer with a diehard Yellowstone fan.

“Live auction with Taylor Sheridan today for this wonderful charity!” Hauser says in the post. “My wife and I have been supporting this charity along with the Sheridan’s for the last four years. I’m buying the beer!”

Other items up for grabs in the live auction include a trail ride and lunch with Kelly Reilly’s Beth Dutton. Participants can also bid on a lunch outing with Chief Rainwater, played by Gil Birmingham.

Yellowstone lovers can also bid on an overnight stay at Yellowstone Ranch. Items up for bid include a Ryan Bingham (Walker) autographed guitar, authentic Yellowstone saddle and an autographed cast photo.
