Despite the skies pounding North Texas with all types of headline-making wet and windy stuff, the 2020 Cattle Baronesses are making big noise themselves tonight. Cattle Baron’s Ball Co-Chairs Diana Hamilton and Heather Randall have just seconds ago announced plans for the American Cancer Society fundraiser “Just Livin’ #Take Cancer By The Horns.” And, boy, are these ladies changing direction… literally.
On Saturday, October 17, there will be a mega-herd of folks heading north to Frisco to party. But it ain’t gonna be at any ho-hum pasture. No, siree. It will be at The Star. Yup, that’s right. Talk about cowboying it up! The venue is pretty downright glorious.
And to complement The Star’s accommodations, the festivities will be high octane with too-cute-to-be-true, multi-platinum entertainer Dierks Bentley on the Main Stage and Cole Swindell on the Live Auction Stage.
Why, Dierks even sent a personal video note to the Baronesses tonight when they heard the news at Tactical Fleet, which partners Jason Putnam and Chris Barta had Cassie Lawson gussy up the place with one person claiming, “This looks like Crystal Charity Ball.”
Another reason for celebration tonight was the report that “the cancer death rate in the United States fell 2.2 percent from 2016 to 2017 — the largest single-year decline in cancer mortality ever reported.” And North Texas CBB is “the largest single-night fundraising event for cancer research in the world.”
