(7-16-14) Organizers say the 2014 Cattlemen's Ball of Nebraska raised more than $1.3 million last month. The event was held June 6-7 at the Hoot Owl Ranch near the Panhandle community of Harrisburg in Banner County. The ball has been held yearly since 1998 at a different ranch. Ninety percent of the proceeds go toward cancer research at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The remainder goes to regional medical organizations.
