Through the years, the Cattlemen’s Ball of Nebraska has become a premier event of the summer in Nebraska. Sponsored by local cattle producers, the ball is held in a different location each year. Since its inaugural event in 1998, More than $16 million has been raised in past years for the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center in Omaha. Ninety percent of the fundraiser’s proceeds go directly to the cancer center with the remaining re- turned to the local community for health and wellness initiatives. This year’s event was held at the Cass County Fairgrounds in Weeping Water. Mark your calendar for next year’s ball, June 2-3 at Pender.
