Youth takes the reins at 2015 Cowford Ball

In an effort to rally support among younger donors for the 20th Annual Cowford Ball, committee organizers hosted a pre-ball fundraising event Aug. 16 at Mellow Mushroom in Avondale.

The kickoff event drew approximately 70 potential supporters for this year’s Cowford Ball, which raises funds for the Florida Division of the American Cancer Society. Formerly held earlier in the year, the ball has been moved to Saturday, Oct. 3.

This year’s gala will have a Gold Rush theme, inviting celebrants to don jeans, hats and cowboy boots during the event, which will be held at the Jacksonville Fairgrounds.

Heather and Will Courtney will chair the event alongside honorary chairs Margaret and David Hicks. The Courtneys are the youngest couple ever in Jacksonville to head an American Cancer Society fundraising event.
