The Cattlemen's Ball of Nebraska, an event that has raised almost $13 million for cancer research in Nebraska since its inception, is continuing its mission to provide cancer research funds during its nineteenth-annual event taking place June 3 and 4, 2016.

Proceeds from the Ball will benefit the University of Nebraska Medical Center's (UNMC) Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center, a National Cancer Institute designated facility that provides leading-edge research and patient care in Nebraska.


This year's ball is hosted by the Trevor and Torri Lienemann Family at their Lienetics Ranch near Princeton, Nebraska. The event begins Friday at the Nebraska Innovation Campus with tours, a Certified Angus Beef dinner, auction and entertainment. Other Friday activities include the 2016 Cattlemen's Ball Golf Tournament at Wilderness Ridge and tours of Homestead National Monument.

Saturday events at the Lienetics Ranch begin with a champagne breakfast, lunch, and include live and silent auctions, art and fashion shows, cattle displays, tail gates, beer and wine tastings, and other activities. Saturday evening features a prime rib dinner and concert by legendary entertainer Clint Black.

Tickets are available in two tiers; trail boss tickets and top hand tickets. For more information on event details and to purchase tickets, visit cattlemensball.com.

Other ways to support the event include volunteer opportunities, cash donations auction items, and donating proceeds from a steer. Promise Petal centerpieces can also be purchased in the name of a loved one who is suffering from, or has lost a battle with cancer.


This year's Ball also features a unique auction item to be sold prior to the event: a two night stay at the Governor's mansion during the Ball on June 3 and 4, 2016. To bid on this unique experience, go to cattlemensball.com and participate in the online auction.

Ninety percent of the funds raised will go to the Buffett Cancer Center, while 10% will go toward local health initiatives and organizations in southeastern Nebraska.
