The Lubbock Cattle Baron’s Ball is an annual event and fundraiser hosted by the American Cancer Society. With music, food, dancing, cocktails, auctions, and more, this is a country-western event you don’t want to miss.

This year’s ‘Honky Tonk Heros’ Cattle Baron’s Ball chairs are Gabe and Donya Butler. They’ve been passionate about the event for a long time, calling it a “boot-scootin' good time, all for a great cause.” They’ve chosen this year’s restricted gift to go towards children’s pediatric cancer because, “no child or family should have to endure that level of pain and suffering."
