Brooks and Dunn to Perform and Star at the Cattle Baron’s Ball

NBC 5 invites all fans of Brooks and Dunn and music lovers alike to take part in one of the biggest single night fundraising event for the American Cancer Society on October 21, Saturday, at Gilley’s Dallas. For the 2017 Cattle Baron’s Ball, the beloved country duo will be performing as the show’s featured entertainer after the auction. The charity event will also involve an exciting after party that’s set to run until 2:00 in the morning.

For over 43 years, the Cattle Baron’s Ball has been assisting the American Cancer Society by raising a total of over $71 million since it started in 1974. All of the accumulated funds go straight to financially supporting research for the society.

The American Cancer Society has been providing assistance and guidance to cancer patients in North Texas. Among the services they provide are visiting patients in hospitals, encouraging and helping the patients enact, stay brave and resilient even in the face of cancer, research grants, arranging free wigs, providing transportation for the patients on their way to treatment and back, as well as coordinating with the local laws in their efforts to continuously protect the workers and the public from the dangers of secondhand smoke.

The Cattle Baron’s Ball is not the first charity event that Brooks and Dunn have participated in. They have also held charity events on their own, and joined some of their fellow country artists in making various fundraising concerts possible. Back in 2008, Brooks and Dunn serenaded the crowd and teamed up for a concert that collected funds for both their individual charities. They also collaborated with Johnny Cash in a Folsom Prison Blues rendition for the September 1994 charity album, Red Hot + Country that benefited AIDS awareness. On June 5, 2017, the duo surprised fellow country performer and friend, Darius Rucker during his eighth annual “Darius and Friends” benefit concert. The artists shared the stage for a performance of “Red Dirt Road” and “Boot Scootin’ Boogie.”

It’s nice to see our favorite country stars work together towards a common goal—and that is to encourage positive change in the community.
