Ford Partners With American Cancer Society for 15th Annual Cattle Baron’s Ball


Ford Motor Co. will host the Cattle Baron’s Ball on Sept. 23 to benefit the American Cancer Society. The 15th annual event will be held at Cobo Center in Detroit. The annual event has raised more than $15 million since 2003.

“One out of every three women and half of men will get cancer at some point. This stark reality is why it’s so important to support the American Cancer Society’s fight for a world without cancer,” says Joy Falotico, Ford’s group vice president and honorary chair of the event.

“I am proud to chair this year’s ball because the money we raise will provide support and services to many people who are suffering, and ultimately help us win the battle against cancer. We are getting closer all the time.”

The event will feature western-themed food and fashion, and highlight 15 stories of hope and courage to honor the 15 years of support from the metro Detroit community. The Cattle Baron’s Ball will also feature performances by Levon, a country/rock group that showcases a laurel canyon-style harmony, as well as the Michigan-based group Annabelle Road, which will entertain guests with country-rock fusion throughout the evening.

“In the last 15 years, the Detroit business community has proven its ability to make a tangible impact on cancer,” says Christine Kenny, senior manager of distinguished events for the American Cancer Society.

“The money we have raised through the Ball has ensured that patients get the support and services they need, provided countless preventative care services such as cancer screenings, supported the critical work of cancer researchers pursuing new treatments for the disease, and supported all of the Society’s efforts to save lives from cancer.”
