American Cancer Society Will Not Hold Cattle Baron’s Ball this Year, Calls for Community to Support Cancer Patients
Based on the CDC’s recommendations and the direction of our local community to encourage social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, the local American Cancer Society family has made the difficult, yet important decision to not hold this year’s Round Up: A Cattle Baron’s Ball that was scheduled for April 18, 2020 at the Midland County Horseshoe. The American Cancer Society’s top priority remains the health and safety of our volunteers, staff, and the cancer patients and their loved ones who rely on us.
“While we will not be coming together for a night ‘Under the Big Top’ this year,” said Adrian Nobles and Chelsea Crossland. “It is our sincerest hope that the Midland community will take this opportunity to exercise their passion and dedication to fighting cancer and support those who need it the most— the patients with compromised immune systems, caregivers, and their families.”
The American Cancer Society is grateful for all the dedication of our volunteers and appreciate the sacrifices they make to support our events. The COVID-19 situation remains uncertain and fluid and our goal is to respond in a way that best meets the health and safety needs of those who rely on us.
