RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — 8News is taking the lead with the American Cancer Society and we’re raising money for cancer research in a unique way.
The Cattle Baron’s Ball, sponsored by Haley Automotive Group, is coming to the Richmond area. It’s a night of fun, food and boot scootin’.
The western gala is held in more than 50 cities including Tampa and Dallas. And, now… Keystone Acres in Chesterfield on Saturday, November 5.
The Cattle Baron’s Ball originated in Dallas, Texas more than 35 years ago and is now the American Cancer Society’s signature western event with more than 50 Cattle Baron’s events nationwide. Cattle Baron’s Ball is where cowboys and cowgirls come together for an evening of golf o’ western fun! Today we ask you to help us continue to give the gift of another birthday through your participation in the inaugural 2016 Richmond Cattle Baron’s Ball.
At this western gala, you’ll don your blue jeans and cowboy boots to raise funds for the fight against cancer. Slated for November 5, at the beautiful Keystone Acres in Chesterfield, Virginia, this year’s event will inspire, uplift and help create a world with more birthdays.
A few music country stars will also be hitting the stage. Singer Ray Scott will be headlining and the country band, Outshyne, will be the opening act.
