Harrisburg, NE (AP) - Organizers have set a goal of a record-breaking $2.5 million for this year's Cattlemen's Ball.
The ball is scheduled for June 6-7 at the Hoot Owl Ranch near the Banner County community of Harrisburg in the Nebraska Panhandle.

The theme for the event is "Corral a Cure for Cancer."

The Cattlemen's Ball of Nebraska has been held yearly since 1998 at a different ranch. Ninety percent of the proceeds go toward cancer research at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The remainder goes to regional medical organizations.

Tickets are on sale at http://cattlemensball.com/ or by calling 308-235-2289.
