To rustle up even more support and enthusiasm for the 6th annual Cattle Barons’ Ball on Nov. 8 in Fayette County, the planning committee is hosting the event’s inaugural women’s tennis and men’s golf tournaments. Both events will raise additional funds for the American Cancer Society.

The tennis tournament, to be held on Saturday, Nov. 1, at Canongate Whitewater Creek Country Club, will be a women’s doubles tournament open to players with 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 rankings. The tournament, sponsored by Boulignini Shoes & Accessories, will begin at 9:30 a.m., with lunch provided by Mellow Mushroom. Live and silent auctions will be held during lunch, and prizes will be awarded to the winners of each division. The registration fee, which includes a T-shirt, is $60 per player and is limited to the first 50 players. The deadline to register is Oct. 15. For registration forms, visit www.baronsball.com.
