Cattle Baron’s Ball set for Oct. 21 at Gilley’s Dallas

The 2017 Cattle Baron’s Ball is set for Saturday, Oct. 21, at Gilley’s Dallas. It will feature Brooks & Dunn on the main stage. Cattle Baron’s has raised nearly $70 million in the past 40 years toward the ongoing pursuit of a cure for cancer.

Park Place Dealerships and  Cattle Baron’s have a 20-year relationship that will continue with this year’s event. The theme Shooting for the Stars: A Dream as Big as Texas, will see Park Place offer the winner of the raffle the choice between a 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE, 2017 Volvo XC60 or a 2017 Porsche Macan with an estimated value of $58,000.

Cattle Baron’s has provided more than 30,000 services to cancer patients in North Texas, rides to and from treatments, and wigs free of charge. The American Cancer Society is the beneficiary of the event, and the mission is to save lives, celebrate lives and lead the fight for a world without cancer.

Ken Schnitzer founded Park Place Dealerships 30 years ago with a single Mercedes-Benz dealership on Oak Lawn. Park Place Dealerships employs more than 2,000 people and operates 16 full-service dealerships representing luxury brands including Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, Porsche, Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lotus, Rolls-Royce, Bugatti, Bentley, McLaren and Maserati.
