Fort Worth, Texas, known for its vibrant culture and Western charm, is gearing up for a significant event in its social calendar: the Cowtown Ball. Now in its 31st year, the Cowtown Ball stands as one of Tarrant County’s premier galas, gathering individuals from all walks of life to join in a common cause: supporting the American Cancer Society (ACS) in its mission to combat cancer.

Since its inception, the Cowtown Ball has been more than just a Western evening affair. It has become a cornerstone in the community’s efforts to raise funds for cancer research and patient support. Over the years, this event has amassed an impressive $8.5 million, contributing significantly to the ACS’s initiatives in Fort Worth and beyond!

At the heart of the Cowtown Ball is a profound commitment to the ACS’s overarching mission: to improve the lives of individuals and families affected by cancer through advocacy, research, and patient support. Founded in 1913, the American Cancer Society has been a beacon of hope for millions worldwide, catalyzing groundbreaking research and pioneering initiatives that have revolutionized cancer treatment and care.

From its humble beginnings to its current stature, the ACS has been at the forefront of numerous milestones in the fight against cancer. From spearheading research that led to the development of life-saving drugs like Herceptin to establishing vital screening guidelines for early detection, the society’s impact spans decades of dedication and innovation. Notably, the ACS’s research program, initiated in 1946, has funded over $5 billion in projects and supported 49 Nobel Prize-winning researchers, underscoring its commitment to driving transformative change.

In Texas alone, the ACS’s presence is palpable, with 59 grants totaling almost $43 million, 16 of which directly benefit the North Texas area. Moreover, the society’s initiatives extend beyond research, encompassing vital services such as transportation assistance through the Road to Recovery program and providing lodging support to patients and families through Hope Lodges and grants to hospital systems.
As the battle against cancer wages on, the ACS remains resolute in its mission, with a bold objective to reduce the mortality rate by 40% by 2035. However, achieving this ambitious goal requires collective action and unwavering support from individuals and organizations alike.
