Whoa, ponies! Looks like Cattle Baron’s Ball is nearing “Sold Out” status, so groveling might become necessary. This ramping up of ticket sales is the result of CCB chair Jennifer Dix and her gals deciding to change things around for the very private Baron Sponsors Party that precedes the 7 p.m. start time for the October 15th gala at Southfork.
What changes, you ask?
What you already knew — unlike years past when one of the gala headliners snuck into the Barons Sponsors Party and did a meet-and-greet in a private spot for the toppest-dollar sponsors, Clint Black has been brought on board just to perform at the ultra-exclusive pre-party. That in itself got tickets selling fast. Duh!
Now Jennifer has managed to sweet talk Clint into working the crowd at the sponsors’ party. But the uber sponsors will still have their private howdy-doody with Clint.
And, yes, there are still more new developments!
The Baron Sponsors Party is moving indoors. Since it might get a little cozy in the traditional party house (“Ewing Mansion”), it will be held at another indoor facility at Southfork.
Hey, that’s not to say the mega-shindig is anything but glittering. Heck, no. Not when Tom Addis is up to his magical stuff with the theme of “A Rhinestone Cowboy.” Then don’t forget Darius Rucker will be on the Dr Pepper Main Stage and Dierks Bentley will be entertaining on the Bank of America Live Auction Stage.
So, if you haven’t gotten your reservation, you’d better hustle. And if you’ve already locked down your spot, rethink it. You might want to up the ante because the perks are only getting better and better.
And, yes, before you ask — there is a backup plan!
