We are so excited to be involved in helping plan this year’s Central Texas Cattle Baron’s Ball and fund the important work done by the American Cancer Society. Last year’s event was a huge success in raising over a quarter of a million dollars for cancer research. We are excited to be a part of planning another great event- and a fun party!
Since the inception of the first Waco Cattle Baron’s Ball in 1993, over $8.3 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 funding 58 grants totaling over $37 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.
As in past years, a special portion of all proceeds from the live auction will go towards our designated focus area of gastrointestinal (GI) cancer, which encompasses the group of cancers that affect the GI track and other related organs, from esophageal cancer to cancer of the stomach and stomach lining, pancreatic, colon, and more. We would like to personally invite you to be a part of this important and meaningful work to create more awareness about cancer, support more victims through their recovery, and save more lives.
The 2020 Cattle Baron’s Ball will be held Saturday, June 27th at the Extraco Events Center. Below are the various sponsorship levels. Click here to view a detailed list of amenities for each level. Further, new this year, we invite you to designate your sponsorship in honor of or in memory of someone dear to you who has been impacted by cancer.
So many lives are impacted by cancer, so many people near and dear to our hearts, and likely yours, too. We hope you will consider being a part of this important event.
Thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to a partnership in which you help us in 20/20 Envision a Future Without Cancer.
