2007 Tyler Cattle Barons' Theme Revealed

The East Texas community comes out to make a difference in the fight against cancer as the 2007 Tyler Cattle Barons' logo was unveiled.

"Suburban Cowboy" is the 20th Anniversary Gala theme, designed by cue:creative in Tyler.  It was announced by the 2007 Tyler Cattle Baron's chair, our own Gillian Sheridan. The news was revealed at a fundraiser at Rick's on the Square in Tyler.  A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the American Cancer Society. 

Also announced, Bob and Mary Irwin as Honorary Chairs. This generous Tyler couple has supported the local Gala from the event's beginning. 

"It has been a privilege to support the Cattle Barons' Gala since it's inception because of the opportunity to someday find a cure for this heartbreaking and insidious disease," Mr. Irwin said. "I can't think of anyone who hasn't been affected in some manner by cancer, and what a wonderful thing it would be to one day have a world free of cancer. I am honored to be a part of this organization."

Mrs. Irwin adds, "I want to congratulate the hundreds of volunteers who have worked tirelessly through the past 20 years to make this event as successful as it has become. It's more than just a party - it is a mission to eradicate cancer and one in which each volunteer earnestly believes. They have given generously of their time, their talents and their resources."

The 20th Anniversary Tyler Cattle Barons' Gala is June 9, 2007. It will take place at Harry Leatherwood's beautiful Rio Neches Ranch in Tyler.
