  14th Cattle Baron’s Ball Set For Apr. 4 At Lake Club  
  February 13, 2020 Edition  
     On Saturday, April 4, the 14th annual American Cancer Society Cattle Baron’s Ball will be held at the Lake Club. The ball is one of the Mahoning Valley’s premiere charity events, with tickets selling out each year, raising dollars to fund the fight against cancer.
      This year’s honorees, chairs and special guests include Pat and Doug Sweeney, honorary chairs of the event; Dr. Thomas J. Chirichella III, medical honoree; Robin Daprile, cancer survivor honoree; Brett Wilcox and Ava Timko, special guests, pediatric cancer survivors; and Carole Weimer and Annette Camacci, co-chairs of the ball.
      “Along with event presenting sponsor Mercy Health, the Cattle Baron’s Ball volunteers and staff are honored to have such a distinguished group of honorees and special guests committed to helping fight cancer,” Weimer said.
      Community philanthropists Patt and Doug Sweeney will serve as the honorary chairs. Doug is the president of Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC in Boardman, and Patt is recently retired as the health commissioner for Mahoning County.
      Medical honoree is Dr. Thomas J. Chirichella, medical director at the Mercy Health Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Center.
      Survivor honoree Robin Daprile, owner of Robin Daprile Personal Training Services and is a two-year survivor of breast cancer.
      Ava Timko and Brett Wilcox, both 12-years-old, have been past honorees at the event, and they provide hope for the future with their attendance every year as special guests.
      The Cattle Baron’s Ball will offer attendees a lively, western-themed party featuring gourmet cuisine, musical entertainment and dancing, live and silent auctions, and much more. Attendees are encouraged to don their favorite country-western denim and add some glitz for this “Denim and Diamonds” event.
      Entertainment will be provided by Leanne Binder during the 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. cocktail hour, and the K Street Band will provide entertainment for the balance of the evening. Returning this year are Dana Balash from WFMJ as master of ceremonies, and Paul Basinger, as the auctioneer for the evening’s live auction.
      The event is made possible through the support of the presenting sponsor Mercy Health. Additional major sponsors include Gem Young, Hollywood Gaming, Mercy Health Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Cancer Center, The Muransky Companies, Simon Roofing, Richard and Susan Sokolov and Komara Jewelers.
