The Cattlemen’s Ball was formed in 1997 by a small group of beef industry leaders who wanted to create an organization to promote beef as part of a healthy diet—and in the process, do some good by raising money for cancer research.
In the years since, the Cattlemen’s Ball of Nebraska has become one of the nation’s most successful cancer fundraisers—with more than $7 million raised so far.
The Cattlemen’s Ball of Nebraska is a 501(c)3 charity—focused on ensuring that the money raised goes to the cancer research and local health and wellness programs for which it is intended. Over the 15-year history of the event, nearly 99% of the money raised has gone directly to medical research and healthcare programs—all in Nebraska.
The Cattlemen’s Ball is about Nebraskans working together to make good things happen.
