Posted: Updated:
ESSEX, Vt. -

A big fundraiser in Essex Friday night-- the third annual Cattle Baron's Ball.

Money raised will benefit the Hope Lodge in Burlington, which offers free, temporary housing for cancer patients and their families from out of town who are undergoing treatment.

Those attending the Cattle Baron's Ball at the Barn at Lang farm will spend the evening gaming, dancing, dining and shopping. There is even a celebrity pie raffle. More than 200 people were expected to attend.

Kathy Schirling and Allison Fogler, who co-chaired the ball, said the event raised $30,000 last year. This year, they hope to raise $40,000 and to increase the number of attendees.
