Tickets to 2013 Cattlemen's Ball Almost Gone

Tickets for the 2013 Cattlemen's Ball in Paxton are going quickly. The 2013 Cattlemen's Ball will take place June 7th and 8th on the Hanging H Ranch on U.S. Highway 30 east of Paxton. This year's event is co-hosted by the Ralph and Beverly Holzfaster family and the Neal Hansen family.

In a interview with KNEB/Rural Radio Network, Ticket Sales Co-Chair Kerri Anderson says Top Hand tickets are nearly gone with less than 300 tickets available for the main event on Saturday, June 8th. Top Hand tickets are $75 each and that includes admittance to all events on Saturday, including entertainment, auctions, fashion show, prime rib dinner, concert performance by country music legends Lone Star and a post-concert dance. Trail Boss tickets for both days of activities have been sold out for months.

Anderson says the best way to reserve tickets is through online ticketoutlet at By the end of May, Anderson expects online ticket sales will be shut down.

The annual Cattlemen's Ball raises money for cancer research at the University of Nebraska Medical Center Eppley Cancer Center, while showcasing rural Nebraska and promoting beef as part of a healthy diet.

Since its inception, the Cattlemen's Ball has raised more than $6.3 million.
