American Cancer Society Announces
18th Annual Lee County Cattle Baron’s Ball to be held on October 8
FORT MYERS (DATE) – The American Cancer Society is pleased to announce the 2022 Lee County Cattle Baron’s Ball which will be held at the Hyatt Regency Resort and Spa Coconut Point on Saturday, October 8. The Cattle Baron’s Ball is the American Cancer Society’s signature western event with more than 50 events nationwide. This year, we celebrate 18 years and an amazing history of support in Lee County. Since its inception, the event has raised $4 million to support the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives, celebrate lives, and lead the fight for a world without cancer.
This year’s mission moment will support the newly created Lee and Collier County Health Equity Fund. Cancer is a disease that can affect anyone, but it does not affect everyone equally. Many barriers can impact a person’s ability to prevent, find, treat, and survive cancer and the American Cancer Society is committed to actively working towards ending cancer disparities. This fund will support programs related to transportation and lodging grants, as well as increasing screening efforts with partners in our community.
The 18th annual Lee County Cattle Baron’s Ball will feature line dancing and music from Whiskey Country, along with a live and silent auction, bull riding, axe throwing, and a custom designed menu from the Hyatt.
