Cancer hasn’t stopped, and neither will we. We are excited to be involved in helping plan the 2021 Central Texas Cattle Baron’s Ball which raises funds to support the important work done by the American Cancer Society.
Although we had to make the difficult decision to pivot to a virtual event in 2020, through the generosity of our donors, the Central Texas Cattle Barons Ball was able to raise more than $140,000 to help fund innovative and cutting-edge research projects in the fight against cancer.
Since the inception of the first Waco Cattle Baron’s Ball in 1993, $8.6 million has been contributed to local and national cancer support services, as well as groundbreaking cancer research.
In Texas alone, the American Cancer Society is currently funding 56 grants totaling over $38 million dollars at Baylor College of Medicine, The University of Texas at Austin, Texas A&M University as well as nine other major research colleges and centers here in Texas.
We would like to personally invite you to be a part of this vital and meaningful work to create more awareness about cancer, support more victims through their recovery, and save more lives.
The 2021 Cattle Baron’s Ball will be held Saturday, October 23, 2021 at MCC Highlander Ranch. We have selected Breast Cancer as the 2021 focus, and as in previous years, proceeds from our Raise the Paddle portion of the Live Auction will go toward this specific mission area. Our 2021 Honoree is Alison Sorley, a born and raised Wacoan and breast cancer survivor. You can read more about Alison's story here.
There are many lives impacted by cancer, those who are near and dear to our hearts, and likely yours too. We hope you will join us for another year of fun, and most importantly, raising money for this worthy cause.
Thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to a partnership in which you help us Cowboy Up to Cancer!
