TYLER, TX - The Tyler Cattle Barons' Gala Committee will kick-off the 2010 event festivities with a benefit lunch to reveal the Gala's theme, logo and location on Thursday, Oct. 22 at Outback Steakhouse, located at 5704 S Broadway Ave.

"This lunch is the community's first chance to get a glimpse of the excitement being planned for the 2010 Tyler Cattle Barons' Gala," said Meredith Roberts, Gala Co-Chair. "We are looking forward to celebrating our 23rd year for this event, as we continue to 'drive' cancer away. We appreciate our sponsors and our committee, who give so generously to make Tyler a leader in the fight against cancer. Honk for a Cure!"

The event, which is open to the public, will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Lunch costs $15 per person and a portion of the proceeds will be donated by Outback Steakhouse to the American Cancer Society. The 2010 theme and logo, created by Autry Design, will be revealed at 12:30 p.m.

"Along with the logo unveiling we have a fantastic location to announce!" said Laura Corbett, Gala Co-Chair. "Every year, with the help of our community, we make progress on the war against cancer. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could do away with the words 'You Have Cancer'?"

Since its inception, the Tyler Gala has raised $7.7 million for research, patient advocacy, preventative education and patient services in our community.
