OMAHA, Neb. (July 16, 2013)—The 2013 Cattlemen’s Ball raised $2.12 million to support cancer research, shattering the event’s previous record of $1.49 million by some $600,000, event officials announced Monday.

All of the money stays in Nebraska to support cancer research and local health and wellness programs.

Ninety percent of the proceeds — approximately $1.9 million — will go to support cancer research at the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center in Omaha. Ten percent of the proceeds — around $200,000 — will be distributed as grants to health and wellness organizations in the Paxton-Sutherland area.
