Cattle Baron’s Set to Rustle Up Some Fun
By Meredith Moss Staff Writer
What/when/where: The American Cancer Society's Cattle Baron's Ball returns for 2008 at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 13 (a Saturday) at the Schuster Center Wintergarden in downtown Dayton.
What's in store? The theme is Urban Cowboy. The event includes upscale Western cuisine, gaming, a live auction from auctioneer Doug Sorrell and dancing to the music of Laurel Hazel and the Buckeyeroos.
Making a difference?
"The Cattle Baron's Ball is one of the events that has allowed the American Cancer Society to grant more than $3 billion to the nation's most promising cancer researchers over the past six decades," says honorary chairman Dan Sadlier. "So I'm looking forward to a night of great food, music and friends while ensuring that lifesaving cancer research and education programs can continue for many years."
Hoping to clear? Last year's first-time event cleared $100,000. The organization is hoping to top that amount this year.
