Amelia Island, FL – The First Annual Cattle Baron’s Ball will be held Friday March 23 and promises to be a very special evening with lots of surprises including special guests Action News co-anchors Tera and Mike Barz.

Tom and Alma Calioia are heading up the silent and live auction. The auctions promise to offer an incredible array of items from a Vespa scooter to a weekend at the exclusive Cabin Bluff resort. “Our community businesses have once again generously donated an amazing array of luches, dinners, and golf rounds to help us raise money for the American Cancer Society,” share the couple.
