Fighting cancer is a serious mission but if you can get people interested in that fight by having a little fun, everyone can benefit.
That's what hundreds of people did Saturday night at the American Cancer Society's annual Cattle barons ball.
In boots and cowboy hats, locals celebrated ten years of battling cancer. Through ticket sales and raffles, the event helps raise money for individuals fighting cancer both locally and nationally.
Funds raised from Saturday’s event will help local cancer patients with transportation services, taking them to and from chemotherapy.
Event Co-Chair, Claire Sherman says one of the biggest programs the event helps fund is the ROCK program which stands for reaching out to cancer kids.
ROCK gives kids battling the disease the chance to attend camp and a trip to Disney world.
The Cattle Baron's Ball is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the local American Cancer Society.
