The 7th Annual Cattle Baron’s Ball, “Stars, Stetsons & Stilettos,”  will be on August 22 at the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum. This western-themed gala will benefit the American Cancer Society.

Starting at 6:30 p.m., the event includes a variety of activities including a catered dinner by Deep Fork Grill, drinks, live entertainment by the Perry Meirs Band, live and silent auctions, raffles, cow-milking, mug-sliding, rodeo roping contest. Tickets are $125 per person and must be purchased in advance.

The Cattle Baron’s Ball live auction will feature a unique opportunity for patrons to bid on hand-painted plates by campers at the American Cancer Society Camp Live-A-Dream. The young cancer survivors are children who have been diagnosed with cancer at some time during their youth.

Auction items include a six day trip to Aruba (private condo), dinner for 20 with Oklahoma legends Billy Sims, Jason White and Steve Owens, autographed Rick Springfield guitar, a pair of shoes a month for a year from Dillard’s.

In addition to bidding on items during the live, silent, and Big Board auctions, attendees will enjoy the annual Pony Preakness stick-horse races. The Cowboy Casino will also be open all night for those guests who prefer cards and dice to ponies or dancing.
