Tickets available for North Dakota Stockmen’s Ball

Through its beef-related scholarship, leadership, research, promotion and building objectives, the North Dakota Stockmen’s Foundation (NDSF) works to ensure a legacy for future generations of North Dakotans – people who embody the values of hard work, environmental stewardship and the free-enterprise system and share a love for their livestock and the beautiful, productive North Dakota landscape.

To support those values and the future of the beef industry, the NDSF is hosting the 2015 Stockmen’s Ball on Saturday, Dec. 12, at the Ramkota Hotel in Bismarck, N.D. The Ball is open to anyone who is interested. The Stockmen’s Ball will be a formal, fun-filled night of western elegance, succulent prime rib and live music by Kyle Shobe and the Walk ‘Em Boys.

The five-piece country band is based out of Lewistown, Mont., and has ties to North Dakota. In addition to playing music, each member is also an auctioneer. Kyle Shobe was the 2010 World Champion Livestock Auctioneer.

The event starts at 5 p.m. CT with entertainment and hors d’oeuvres, followed by supper, dancing and live and silent auctions. Auction items – ranging from vacation packages to one-of-a-kind western furnishings – would make perfect holiday gifts, as would tickets to the event itself, said Jason Zahn, NDSF president, a Towner, N.D., rancher.

“The Stockmen’s Foundation is proud to have supported dozens of students further their education with collegiate scholarships and helped dozens of ranchers get their feet back on the ground after Winter Storm Atlas and other disasters,” said Zahn. “The Stockmen’s Ball is a great way for folks to support these types of projects and to have a great time at the same time.”

A limited number of tickets are available. Only advanced tickets will be sold. They are now available, per person or per table, by contacting the NDSF office at (701) 223-2522 or A block of rooms is reserved for the Stockmen’s Ball at the Ramkota Hotel.
