Budweiser Events Center | 5290 Arena Cir, Loveland, CO | Gala 5:00 p.m. | Concert Doors Open at 8 p.m.
Country music star Jake Owen will headline the American Cancer Society 25th Anniversary Northern Colorado Cattle Baron’s Ball at the Budweiser Events Center (BEC) in Loveland, CO, Saturday, Sept. 9. This year’s event moves to the BEC as we blow the roof off our fundraising expectations allowing an additional 3,700 concert-only attendees to help us raise funds to fight cancer.
This year’s theme is Barefoot Blue Jean Night. The Cattle Baron’s Ball starts as a private gala held on the floor of the arena from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Doors open to the public for the Jake Owen concert starting at 8 p.m. with seating at 8:30 p.m. The Cattle Baron’s Ball, which has sold out the past several years, celebrates the region’s Western heritage with fine dining, dancing, live and silent auctions and the performance by Owen, all while fundraising to help end cancer.
At the heart of the Cattle Baron’s Ball fundraising efforts are the table sponsorship opportunities. These sponsorships have been the main reason we’ve been able to raise nearly $7M since our inception. Table sponsorships range from $4,000 to $12,000 with individual floor access starting at $800 per couple. Major sponsorships are offered from $25,000 to $100,000. With these tickets you will enjoy the gala before Jake takes the stage. The gala runs from 5:00-8:30 p.m. with concert starting after.
Want to just see Jake in concert? Here’s how. The Budweiser Events Center has concert-only tickets available for the general public to see Jake Owen and special guests LANCO. Tickets prices range from $55 to $65 and can be purchased through the Budweiser Events Center’s website. Doors open at 8 p.m. for Jake’s concert.

The much-anticipated new album American Love represents the best of Jake Owen both musically and personally, and that’s because the project is the result of a soul-searching journey that led him to explore the meaning of life and music.
While recording the album, he ventured down some enticing new musical paths, but eventually decided to return home to his Florida-inspired roots, embracing the unique sound for which he is popular. Personally, he worked through the pain and healing of a divorce and renewed his commitment to what really matters in life – hope, optimism and the power of love… [READ MORE]
One singer might be a force, but five is a family. It’s impossible to deny: there’s just something about the power of a band, where songs form a bond thicker than blood. Which speaks to so many different corners of the music lover’s heart. That experience is at the core of LANCO – singer and lyricist Brandon Lancaster, Chandler Baldwin (bass guitar), Jared Hampton (keyboards), Tripp Howell (drums) and Eric Steedly (guitar) – and their version of modern country that’s fit for arenas but sounds equally sweet on the jukebox of a local honkytonk. It’s a collective effort from five artists with solid southern roots that rocks and twangs equally, making songs like “Greatest Love Story,” their newest single, resonate like few others: one part classic, one part cutting edge and completely honest… [READ MORE]
As Event Chairs for this year’s Cattle Baron’s Ball, Randy & Nicole Walkins invite you to enjoy a night of great music featuring Jake Owen with special guest LANco all while raising money for fight cancer.
Randy is a partner at Anton Collins Mitchell LLP, an accounting and consulting firm, and Nicole owns Aliquam Financial Services, an accounting and financial reporting company. Together they own and operate Smart Rides, a taxi business that serves northern Colorado, and are part owners of Property Technica Inc., a property management company.

April 28 of this year marked the 20th anniversary of Randy’s mom losing her battle with cancer, and both Randy and Nicole have many friends and family members who are survivors of the disease. “Losing my mom when I was only 20, and she was only 44, was one of the most difficult experiences of my life, and something I wouldn’t want anyone else to endure,” says Randy. “We are honored to have the opportunity to bring our ideas to an event that will help move the needle on finding a cure.”
Randy and Nicole have two daughters, Lennon (7) and McCartney (4), and enjoy spending time traveling with the girls, playing golf, or relaxing at a lake.
From a young age John Korrey knew that he wanted to be an auctioneer. Traveling with his father every week to various livestock auctions when his dad would sell the produce that he raised on their farm and ranch, John’s attention would be on the auctioneer. He practiced and then went to auction school at Reisch Auction School, 1972.
John wanted to pass on some of his experience in the auction profession, and his hope is to pass on tips to everyone from the beginning auctioneer to the seasoned ones. All in the effort of making the auction profession better.
John has had the opportunity to travel to over 35 states and 4 foreign countries auctioneering livestock, equipment, and many charity events. John counts his blessings every day to be in a profession that he truly loves, with many great people and friends that he has met as a result.
