On behalf of our dedicated committee who help us plan an incredible event each year, we extend our gratitude to our community for years of generous support and invite you to participate in the 33rd annual Southeast Texas Cattle Baron’s Ball on Saturday, November 12!
Last year, your incredible support resulted in the most successful Ball since the event’s inception…all while navigating an ongoing pandemic and facing numerous challenges.
But there’s still more work to be done…To ensure we are providing support to local individuals who are battling a cancer diagnosis, we humbly ask you to:
1) Help ACS to fund cancer research grants to cutting-edge scientists
2) Provide free local services to patients with a cancer diagnosis and
3) Purchase a raffle ticket or support our Restricted Giving Program.
Through these steps, we are turning cancer patients into cancer survivors by discovering new treatment options, early detection, targeted therapies and cures. All while providing free services to minimize the financial burden many families experience during treatment.
Yellowstone – This year’s theme gives a nod to all the ranchers, the cowboys and yes, the cowgirls of the west. And much like the Dutton family, we are relentlessly protecting a legacy; but instead of protecting a ranch, our legacy is aimed at eliminating a disease that has touched nearly everyone on earth. And we won’t stop until cancer is in the history books. Make plans for an unforgettable evening on November 12 to raise awareness and critical funding for the American Cancer Society. To play off a classic Beth Dutton quote,
“Let's take cancer to the Train Station!”

2022 Cattle Baron’s Ball Chairs
For more than a 100 years, The American Cancer Society has been leading the fight to end cancer. With your support, we have helped usher in an era where more people survive cancer than ever before. By translating our research findings into action, we've seen a 20% decline in US cancer death rates since the early 1990s.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted how the American Cancer Society safely conducts the Southeast Texas Cattle Baron’s Ball and other event experiences in your community. In the event that ACS is unable to deliver any of the benefits above due to alterations for public safety, we will personally notify you to discuss benefit substitutions.
