Charles Ragsdell and his wife Lori have been supporters of Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge since 1999. They also produce the Eureka Springs Blues Weekend, which draws thousands of blues lovers to Eureka Springs each year. A portion of Blues Weekend's profits go to Turpentine Creek, along with other charities. When two tiger cubs were born during the first Blues Weekend, Lori and Charles sponsored one of the brothers, naming him BB King, after the King of the Blues.
