San Antonio’s 32ND Annual

Cattle Baron’s Gal a Benefiting the American Cancer Society

We’re Buckling Up to Cure Cancer!

Welcome to this evening’s gala and thank you so much for supporting us in our efforts to help cancer patients in South Texas. This devastating disease has affected so many people in our community and we are no different. We were fortunate to have the resources to get us through that difficult time. Some are not so lucky. Many patients depend upon the American Cancer Society for transportation and other necessary resources to help them through their journey with cancer. Please consider extending your support by donating to the raffle, silent and live auctions and other fundraisers

tonight to help the American Cancer Society expand their help to these patients. We thank our guests, sponsors and all of the hard working individuals who served on the many committees created to hold an event of this magnitude. Because of your efforts, we all made this a sell-out event! Enjoy the evening! Sincerely,

Jaime & Lori Wesolowski

A former young cancer patient, Craig Egan, President of ACE Technologies, envisioned a unique project for Camp Discovery 2010, the construction of a state of the art, all electric vehicle. From concept to creation, this one of a kind technology utilized the support of the Alamo City Electric Automobile Association. This project, led by Craig and Gary Krysztopik, required over 1,000 hours of engineering and design work. Through the financial generosity of the San Antonio Automobile Dealers Association and many others, advanced vehicle components were purchased for the kit. The young campers were the driving force to transform the motors, wires and wheels into a vehicle for the 21st century, a true discovery of strength and determination. Campers choose the name, “The Discovery” in discovery of their new skills and talents. With a top speed of 50 MPH and acceleration of 0-30 in 3 seconds, this extraordinary all terrain vehicle will drive one to new discoveries.

A longtime friend of the American Cancer Society, Don Strange, the patriarch of the internationally renowned catering company, Don Strange of Texas Inc., passed away Wednesday, November 11, 2009 at the age of 69. Don Strange and his wife Frances were the Co-chairs of the American Cancer Society Cattle Baron’s Gala in 2009. Strange is best known for his larger than life presence, passion for his family and his life-long love of Texas cuisine. Don Strange is often credited by many for putting Texas on the culinary map. Don was part of the Cattle Baron’s Gala from the beginning. Starting with the first Cattle Baron’s in Dallas, Don created the signature menu and style of Cattle Baron’s. As the Cattle Baron’s expanded — cities across Texas called on Don Strange to help them create successful events. Over the years Don helped the American Cancer Society raise millions of dollars for the fight against cancer by creating incredible parties that kept guest coming back year after year.

Those diagnosed with cancer face many medical, physical, and emotional issues surrounding the disease. Their only hope can mean hundreds of trips to doctors, specialists, hospitals, and treatments. This presents a serious challenge for those who do not have access to transportation to get to their treatment. Without treatment their hope is gone.
