2014 Cattlemen's Ball tickets officially sold out

Premier annual event set for June 6-7 in Banner County

Harrisburg, NE – The 2014 Cattlemen’s Ball of Nebraska is officially sold out. 

As of today, tickets are no longer available to purchase for the event, and there are no ticket sales at the gate.

The annual event will be held at the Hoot Owl Ranch in southern Banner County on June 6-7 to raise money for cancer research. 

The Cattlemen’s Ball is hosted by owners, Jeff & Kathy May; along with the ranch managers, Kenny & Misty Stauffer. 

The mission for this event is to raise money for cancer research at the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, while showcasing the Nebraska panhandle and promoting beef as part of a healthy diet.

Since its inception, the Cattlemen’s Ball has raised more than $9.8 million.  In addition to providing funds to the cancer center, 10 percent of the proceeds will go to local health care organizations.

The Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center is a National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated cancer center -- a distinction held by only 68 centers in the country. It is the only NCI-designated center in the state of Nebraska. The Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center is also one of the 13 founding members of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), an alliance of the world’s leading cancer centers. This recognition means the most current and innovative treatment options are available to cancer center patients through the integration of cutting-edge research into state-of-the-art care. Cancer center physicians and scientists work together to quickly translate discoveries made in the laboratory into innovative treatments for the patient.
