Major Success for the Annual Cattle Baron's Ball

Auction Chair Jennifer Dix with Louis Murad
Louis and Claire Murad


On behalf of Louis Murad, a local full-time charity auctioneer raised $770,000 for the American Cancer Society. The live auction was said to have raised $750,000 while the ball itself raised more money as a whole. Dallas is fortunate to host the world's largest single-night fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Within the past 37 years, "The Cattle Baron's Ball" has raised $43 million which has earned a spot in Texas History. The auction included a brand-new 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster, which was auctioned off at a whopping $220,000. How amazing is it that while someone is driving around in this gorgeous vehicle we are saving so many lives who have fallen to cancer? Murad was quoted saying, “This year’s ball was a fantastic event, and I’m proud to help raise so much money for cancer research, most of all, though, I had a heck of a lot of fun.” To get in touch or have Louis host one of your auction events please visit his website, http://www.muradauctions.com.
