Cattle Barons' Gala Brings Out Boots And Donations

It was fancy food, spurs and cowboy boots.
The Cattle Barons' Gala brought out the cowboys and girls, as well as the donations Saturday night. This years theme "Steers and Stripes Forever."
The Cattle Barons' Gala began in 1997 for pediatric oncology children and their families from around East Texas.
Money raised through the gala benefits the American Cancer Society.
"It's not if we find a cure, it's when," said Co-Chairman Stacey Hardin-Gregory, "and the money raised tonight go directly to cancer research and services here in East Texas. It's vital we keep this gala alive and support it and embrace it as a community."
Country music star and East Texan Neal McCoy took the stage later in the evening at the gala.
