The Big Event Has a Lot to Live Up To

BY // 05.18.23

When is a kickoff party so much more than a mere kickoff party, more than a launch to a greater event? When the American Cancer Society‘s Cattle Baron’s Ball launch party turns into a full-fledged rollicking bash. That would be the scene at The Rustic Downtown when more than 300 celebrants rocked and rolled Western style stirring up support for the actual Cattle Baron’s Ball set for September 9 at the Post 713 Music Hall.

This was so much more than your typical kickoff that even organizers were surprised and thrilled. How often does a kickoff party have a chair? Like, never. Melissa Juneau took the helm of this super energized event that entertained what was a record breaking crowd. Joining Juneau in spearheading the event were Cattle Baron’s Ball chairs Jacquie Baly and Laura Bell.

This night featured as many entertainments as many a regular gala. The Blake Harlow Band played the tunes while D’Amico Dance Co. led the line dancing. The Hat Chick offered guests a get ready for the Cattle Baron’s Ball with the fabulous Hat Bar decorating station. Then there was a showstopping raffle and sneak peeks at must-have items to be presented at the September ball auction.

While the attire for this evening was more subtly Western, dressing for the ball promises to be glitz-centric with the “Rhinestone Rodeo” theme. Since its founding in 1989, the ball has raised more than $41 million for the American Cancer Society.

Entertainment at the ball will feature country superstar trio Midland as headliner with Grammy nominated singer Pat Green as the opening act. Singer-song writer Green is credited as being one of Texas country’s modern era founding fathers with watershed tracks like “Carry On,” “Three Days” and his Billboard chart topping hit “Wave On Wave.”
