Cattle Barons’ Gala Offers Night Of Fun & Fundraising

The Cattle Barons’ Gala, a fundraiser known for its relaxed country vibe, will take place Saturday, June 16, with games, food, auctions and a concert by country star Easton Corbin.

The gala raises money for the American Cancer Society, an organization that funds research and provides services for cancer patients and their families.

In a joint statement, Gala chairmen Justin Armstrong and Jeremy Cozad said that the event is an opportunity to “celebrate those who have conquered cancer, reflect on those who have been taken too soon and raise funds for research and support.”

Now in its 31st year, the focus remains on raising awareness and money.

“Our motivation for humbly accepting the honor of co-chairing this event is our friends and family touched by this disease and the urgency we feel to help find a cure,” the men said in their join statement. “In keeping with our 2018 theme, ‘Southern Raised, Southern Strong,’ we salute those who have fought cancer and those who are on the journey alongside them. The party is fun, but the purpose is to find a cure. We long for the day that cancer is defeated.”

‘Southern Raised, Southern Strong’ is the theme of the 2018 Tyler Cattle Barons’ Gala. 

The honorary chairwoman for the gala is Amanda Jones of Tyler, a cancer patient. The Cattle Barons’ Gala also recognizes a Li’l Wrangler, a child who has faced or is facing cancer. This year’s Li’l Wrangler is Jase Curtis, the 4-year-old son of Shauna and Jarod Curtis. Each year, gala volunteers host an event for pediatric oncology patients and their families.

The gala will take place beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Texas Rose Horse Park, a complex at Texas Highway 110 north near Interstate 20 that houses the Brunson Equestrian Center. Gala events are held in a covered show arena and tents that are air conditioned.

How To Spot Door-To-Door Roofing Scammers

Springtime weather may be beautiful, but the severe storms we see during this time of year also means door-to-door scam artists are out and about, most acting like contractors.

About 8,000 complaints are reported each year to the Better Business Bureau about the roofing industry alone. It’s the number one scam during the spring. Lots of scam artists pose as roofing contractors, knocking on your door, promising to fix the damage from the last storm for a cheap price.

Some legitimate contractors also go door-to-door, but how can you tell if someone’s lying?

Mechele Mills with the Better Business Bureau of Tyler said, “If they have an unmarked vehicle, that’s something to be watchful for. Also, if it’s really hard to identify what company they’re with.”

Mills said that another red flag is if the person at your door doesn’t have a business card, or won’t give you contact information.

“You also want to check out their reputation, check out their track record,” Mills suggested.

Pay attention to how they’re asking you to pay for the service. “If they ask for money up front, if they ask for cash, be cautious with that.”

Lots of times, these scammers will take your money, and won’t come back.

Mills said, “The safest way to pay is to use a credit card, because you’ll have 60 days to dispute that transaction.”

The most important thing is your safety. If someone knocks on your door, you don’t have to answer it.

The City of Tyler has an ordinance in place saying that solicitors cannot come to your door before 10:00 a.m. or after dark. They also can’t come to your door at all if you have a no soliciting sign — something to keep in mind if you want to avoid these scammers altogether.

The BBB also says to look out for door-to-door scam artists posing as other types of contractors, like asphalt workers.
