Later that evening, attendees can gather in their boots and hats for dinner, drinks and dancing in the barn at the first Cattlemen's Gala Celebration and Fundraiser also at Leeds Farm. The evening will feature live music from the John D. Hale Band, a nationally known Red Dirt music group from Missouri. Gala attendees will receive reception appetizers, drinks, dinner and live entertainment. Silent and live auctions will be held during the evening to support youth scholarships.
