The American Cancer Society is pleased to announce the 2023 Lee County Cattle Baron’s Ball which will be held on Saturday, October 14. The Cattle Baron’s Ball is the American Cancer Society’s signature western event with more than 50 events nationwide. This year, we celebrate 19 years and an amazing history of support in Lee County. Since its inception, the event has raised $4 million to support the American Cancer Society’s mission to improve the lives of people with cancer and their families through advocacy, research, and patient support, to ensure everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer.
This year’s mission moment will support the newly created Lee and Collier County Health Equity Fund. Cancer is a disease that can affect anyone, but it does not affect everyone equally. Many barriers can impact a person’s ability to prevent, find, treat, and survive cancer and the American Cancer Society is committed to actively working towards ending cancer disparities. This fund will support programs related to transportation and lodging grants, as well as increasing screening efforts with partners in our community.
The 19th annual Lee County Cattle Baron’s Ball will feature music from Whiskey County, along with an exciting live and silent auction, bull riding, axe throwing, Heaven’s Door bourbon tasting, Dunkin’s Diamonds Diamond Heist and a custom designed menu from the Hyatt.
