As owners of the Redbird Ranch, located on the Niobrara River near Lynch, Neb., they provided a scenic and beautiful setting for the ball complete with golfing, silent and live auctions, art show, wine tastings and a concert featuring Aaron Tippin, Sammy Kershaw and Darryl Worley.

Ninety percent of the proceeds from the event go to the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center for cancer research, with the remaining 10 percent earmarked for regional health organizations.

Since the Cattlemen’s Ball started in 1998, the group has raised more than $10 million dollars in support of cancer research.
