The Cattle Barons Ball, which has sold out the past several years, celebrates the region's Western heritage with fine dining, dancing, live and silent actions, and the performance by Owen, all while fundraising to help end cancer.

Co-chairs of the 25th Anniversary Cattle Barons Ball are Randy and Nicole Watkins. They are Greeley natives and University of Northern Colorado alumni. Randy lost his mother to lung cancer when he was 20, and they both have many friends and family members who are survivors of the disease.

"The additional seating and pricing opportunities made possible by hosting the event at the Budweiser Events Center will give more people a chance to enjoy a great evening, and take in the sounds of a chart-topping entertainer like Jake Owen," Randy said.
