2018 FAQ


Cattle Baron’s Ball wants YOU to join us as a Cattle Baron’s Ball underwriter.  The number of tickets you receive depends on the level of your sponsorship.  Ticket and table purchases are open to the public.


Cattle Baron’s Ball is traditionally largest single-night fundraiser in the world for the American Cancer Society.  Did you know that the ACS is the largest private nonprofit cancer research investor?  Thanks to our generous donors and underwriters, the Cattle Baron’s Ball has raised over $77 million for American Cancer Society-funded research since 1974.  


Venue details to be announced soon. 


Date to be announced soon. VIP Baron Party (by ticketed invitation only) begins at 6:00 pm.  The Cattle Baron’s Ball opens to all guests at 7:00 pm. Explore the Silent Auction and enjoy the Live auction (times TBD). Our main stage entertainer will begin the performance at Main Stage immediately following the conclusion of Live Auction.  Our evening concludes with an after-party and breakfast inside Gilley’s that goes on until 2:00 am!


Cattle Baron’s Ball has always been a “boots and jeans” event.  Stilettos can survive our 2018 solid ground and mud-free venue, however, we suggest you do your feet a favor and wear your favorite boots for this year’s event as you will be walking around the various areas and dancing the night away at the after-party. 


Bring a smile, your tickets and your wristband.  All tickets will be hand-delivered or mailed to sponsors who have paid in full for their sponsorship within two weeks of the Ball.  Your ticket is required for admission to the event.  No exceptions.


We have a legendary Live Auction and Silent Auction at the Ball.  Come see the excitement as we auction off over $2 million in items!  We will also be selling raffle tickets for our amazing raffle items – you can purchase raffle tickets up until 9:30 pm. To see what amazing packages and prizes we had in 2017 simply check out the pages on the website.


This year, Cattle Baron’s Ball is indoors and in a giant structure tent at Gilley’s Dallas.  The entire event is enclosed, but if the stars are shining, we will lift the sides of our tent for the main stage entertainer - It is sure to be a memorable concert.
