Cowford Ball is a fabulous, Western-themed gala celebrating 29 years in Jacksonville, FL, where over 350 cowboys and cowgirls will come together for an evening of good ole’ western fun and philanthropy!

American Cancer Society’s 2024 Cowford Ball presented by Morgan & Morgan is Jacksonville’s premier Western-themed gala where over 350 cowboys and cowgirls will come together for an evening of good ole’ western fun and philanthropy!

Drawing its name from our city’s obscure beginning as a cattle crossing on the St. Johns River, the “CowFord” gala plays host to a range of denim-clad, boot-stomping patrons since 1995. The event began at the impetus of ACS volunteer, the late Dot Fischette. Although it is modeled after the American Cancer Society’s nationwide Cattle Barons’ Ball, Cowford Ball’s name is exclusive to Jacksonville.

This one-of-a-kind evening features great food and drink, dancing, a spectacular auction, and much more.

With your support, the American Cancer Society can continue to work to end cancer as we know it, for everyone. The American Cancer Society can continue to improve the lives of people with cancer and their families through advocacy, research, patient support, and to ensure everyone has an opportunity to prevent, detect, treat, and survive cancer. We are the largest private, not-for-profit funder of cancer research in the United States, investing more than $4 billion since 1946. Thanks in part to our contributions, more than 1.5 million lives have been saved in the US in the past two decades. Now, that is a reason to celebrate!

So, grab your hat, and dust off your boots for what promises to be a toe-tapping, knee-slapping, rip-roaring, kick up your heels good time making a measurable difference in the fight against cancer.
