About Cattle Baron's Ball 

The American Cancer Society's iconic Cattle Baron's Ball, a western-themed gala founded 50 years ago in Dallas, TX, thrives in 27 different cities across America who will collectively raise over $17 Million this year towards the ongoing pursuit of a cure for cancer. For the last 30 years, Central Texans have gathered for our own Texas-sized ball to enjoy entertainment from top country artists, auctions, and most importantly, lifesaving mission moments. 

In Waco specifically, ACS funds and Access to Care grant at Baylor Scott and White that provides transportation and lodging to local patients. The Hope Lodges in Dallas, Houston, Lubbock and Oklahoma City have all provided free nights to patients and their caregivers from Central Texas. (To date that includes 369 nights for McLennan County patients) It also funds the Cancer Information Center which is available 24/7/365 to patients and their families. Patients and families can speak to a live person for information on their diagnosis, connected to ACS and other resources, insurance specialists, oncology nurses and more.

Meet Our 2023 Chairs 



For over 100 years, the American Cancer Society has been on a mission to free the world of cancer, and this year is no different.  

We are proud to serve as co-chairs of the 31st annual Central Texas Cattle Baron's Ball, one of the significant fundraising sources for our local American Cancer Society Chapter.  

The Central Texas Cattle Baron's Ball supports the mission of the American Cancer Society so that we can gain further ground toward putting an end to the difficult and debilitating cancer treatments, surgeries, and side effects. Together with the American Cancer Society, we can decrease the burden of this horrible disease in Central Texas and beyond. 

For us, this is personal, as cancer has robbed our families. We are leading this cause because of the loved ones we have lost and for those who continue to battle while demonstrating courage and resilience, inspiring us to do more.


This is our call to action: Join us in the fight for the battle against cancer.
