FORT WORTH _ Country star Mark Chesnutt, famed artist behind eight number-one hits, will be the featured entertainer at the 20th anniversary Cowtown Ball, the annual western-style gala benefiting the American Cancer Society (cancer.org).
Chesnuttâ€™s first album, â€œToo Cold at Home,â€ produced five straight top-10 country hits. His chart-toppers include â€œLongnecks & Short Stories,â€ â€œBubba Shot the Jukebox,â€ â€œIt Sure is Mondayâ€ and â€œGonna Get a Life.â€
The 2012 Cowtown Ball, with the theme “Boots & Bling,” will be held Nov. 3 at River Ranch in the Fort Worth Stockyards. Tickets are available by calling 817-570-0633.
The western-styled gala has raised more than $5 million the past two decades for the American Cancer Society in Tarrant County. This yearâ€™s event will again feature dinner, dancing, casino games, auctions, midway games and more.
As the nationâ€™s leading non-profit funding source for cancer research, the American Cancer Society works to eradicate cancer, the second leading cause of death in the U.S.
