Craig Morgan to perform as central Nebraska hosts ‘09 Cattlemen’s Ball PDF Print E-mail
    Country singer Craig Morgan, who performs fan-favorites “Red Neck Yacht Club” and “International Harvester” and whose single “Love Remembers” has spent the last several months on the country radio charts, is slated as the spotlight entertainment for the 11th annual Cattlemen’s Ball of Nebraska, June 5-6, 2009 near Doniphan.
    The Cattlemen’s Ball will be hosted by Robb Feedyard, Village of Doniphan and surrounding communities.
    The event’s theme, “Give Cancer the Boot,” reflects both the fun-filled spirit the event’s organizers have created and the seriousness with which they see their cause.
    The Cattlemen’s Ball of Nebraska, Inc. is established to promote beef in a healthy diet, to showcase rural Nebraska and to raise money for health care research. To date, this event has raised more than $3 million for the UNMC Eppley Cancer Center in Omaha, while 10 percent of these funds have been granted to local health care organizations.
    The two days include a variety of events including an art show, wine tasting, casino, live and silent auctions, style show, cooking demonstrations, health screenings, a general store and more. A Full Throttle Driving School at Hastings Motorsports Park and a golf tournament at Lochland Country Club are among the weekend’s activities.
    Tickets for the events went on sale Dec. 5 and will be available at all Bank of Doniphan branches located in Doniphan, Grand Island and Hastings.
