MySweetWishList: 2018 Cattle Baron’s Ball

According to 2018 Cattle Baron’s Co-Chairs Katy Bock and Jonika Nix,

Jonika Nix and Katy Bock“Cattle Baron’s has raised more than $75 million for cancer research projects in North Texas since its inception 45 years ago.  We plan to reveal our plans for continuing this important battle in early February and our wish is that the community will join us in our goal to eradicate cancer by becoming underwriters of this 2018 Cattle Baron’s Ball. 

“The first Cattle Baron’s Ball was as a full-fledged Texas barbecue under the chairmanship of Patti Hunt and Jacque Wynne.  The event was a sellout with more than 500 guests attending the western theme party at Toddie Lee Wynne’s Star Brand Ranch.  Through ticket sales and an auction, the Park Cities Branch of the American Cancer Society raised $56,000.

“Decades later, more than 100,000 guests have been entertained at the annual event which has become the world’s largest single event fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. The Cattle Baron’s Ball Committee and the American Cancer Society have expanded the ball’s purpose to include a myriad of services that provide services for cancer patients and their families.

“We hope you will join us by becoming an underwriter of the 2018 Cattle Baron’s Ball. Visit www.cattlebaronsball.com.”

JUST IN: 2017 Cattle Baron’s Ball Co-Chairs Sunie Solomon And Anne Stodghill Present A Whopping $4M For Cancer Research And Treatments

Less than a month ago, weather threatened to put a real damper on the year-long work of the Cattle Baron’s Ball committee led by Sunie Solomon and Anne Stodghill. But the CBBers stood their ground at Gilley’s on Saturday, October 21, and Mother Nature held back until the last guests partied on home. The fundraising was deemed a major party success.

Today at the CBB fall luncheon at Truluck’s, Anne and Sunie revealed the results of their team’s efforts. It was a whopping, holy mackerel $4M to support cancer research and treatments.

That’s not the gross, not the amount raised! It is the bottom-line net.

Now, 2018 CCB Co-Chairs Katy Bock and Jonika Nix pick up and carry on the fundraising for the 45-year-old organization. First on their must-do-list is the announcement of the 2018 theme. That is scheduled to happen after the holidays. Stay tuned.
