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.
