As COVID-19 has forced many nonprofits to shift fundraising events and plans, the Oklahoma chapter of the American Cancer Society has two local physically distanced events coming up on the calendar.
The 14th annual Cattle Baron’s Ball celebrates Oklahoma roots and cowboy boots Oct. 8 at the Admiral Twin Drive-in, 7355 E. Easton St. A VIP entrance opens at 5:30 p.m.; gates open at 6:15 p.m.
Festivities include a performance by country music artist Keith Anderson on an outdoor stage, as well as a live auction and film screening. All guests will receive a swag bag with a light meal, a bottle of wine, beverages and other event-related items. Tickets are $250 and sponsorship opportunities are still available.

While the traditional Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk has been forced to go virtual this year, many in Tulsa might be seeing waves of walkers donned in shades of pink to support the annual event on Oct. 17-18. Virtual walk participants across the Tulsa area will raise money for the American Cancer Society event, whose funds provide innovative breast cancer research and in-person support programs.
