The Tyler Cattle Barons’ Gala has a wonderful history as a grand event and is known as one of Texas’ top galas for raising record-breaking amounts to aid in the fight against cancer.

As we celebrate our 34th Annual Gala “Neon Rose”, we are committed to continuing this stellar tradition. We are so grateful for the people and the businesses in our community that dedicate themselves and volunteer to support the mission of the American Cancer Society and the battle against cancer.

Headlining this year will be Jon Wolfe.

With a decade of touring under his belt, Jon Wolfe felt it was time to put out his second live album. But this time, he would do it a little differently, as evidenced in the raw-and-rowdy live version of “Boots on a Dance Floor” that’s debuting exclusively on Taste of Country today.

“I wanted to capture what my fanbase is all about,” Wolfe tells Taste of Country during a recent chat about his upcoming live album, Live at the Legendary Gruene Hall. “I wanted to go do my show and capture what this is all about, and that was my goal. I didn’t want it too slick, and I didn’t want too many overdubs. Plus, I also wanted to find a way to give back to my fans and take them back to that night.”

The History

Since the inception of the first gala in Tyler in 1988, over $16.5 million has been raised for local and national cancer support services, as well as ground-breaking cancer research. To our local supporters, we send our heartfelt appreciation for your continued support. We invite the community to join us in the fight against cancer through sponsorships, donations, and volunteer support. We are thrilled to welcome Jon Wolfe as the headline entertainer underwritten by Texas Rose Horse Park.


Please make plans to attend “Neon Rose” on Saturday, June 11th at the Brunson Equestrian Center on the grounds of Texas Rose Horse Park. An evening of fabulous food, great entertainment, dancing, winning, gaming, and more is in store!
