Funding Cancer Research. Finding a Cure.

The Cattlemen's Ball is committed to finding a cure for cancer by supporting the Buffett Cancer Center.

COVID-19 Update March 26

Due to the uncertainty of how long the COVID-19 virus will be affecting our state, a decision has been made by the Cattlemen's Ball of Nebraska Advisory Board to postpone the 2020 Cattlemen's Ball. This year's Ball will be postponed until June 4 and 5, 2021 and remain in Columbus, NE. Kevin Rasmussen, Chairman of the Advisory Board, stated "It is with great disappointment and with much discussion of the Advisory Board that it was decided to postpone the Ball to next year. The health of all attending comes first. Let's look forward to 2021, knowing the Columbus group will pick up where they left off and make it even better than if it would have been held this year". Scott and Pat Mueller, host family for the 2020 Ball shared, "While it is disappointing that the 2020 ball is being postponed, our commitment must be to the health and wellness of all the attendees and to what is best for our local community. Our local co-chairs and committees remain committed to hosting the Ball in 2021 and supporting our focus on "Funding Cancer Research & Finding a Cure". Ticket purchasers for the 2020 Ball or Art and General Store Vendors will have the option to roll their payments to the 2021 Ball or request a refund. No action is required if they are wanting to maintain their spot for the 2021 Cattlemen's Ball of Nebraska in Columbus. All proceeds will be distributed in 2021 to the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center and to the local health and wellness initiatives. The 2020 Cattlemen's Ball Planning Committee wishes to thank the donors, chairs, committees and volunteers from across the state for their continued support.
