VICTORY was formed 34 years ago by a group of passionate women in Houston. It is a major fundraising group for the American Cancer Society that raises funds to assist in the fight against cancer. Cattle Baron’s Ball and The Holiday Shopping Card are our signature events and are the major fundraising events for ACS Houston.

Since our inception, the dedicated, hard-working women of VICTORY have contributed over $60 Million to the American Cancer Society for vital research, patient services, and education. We are in the fight to eradicate cancer!

Membership is open to all and includes an exclusive party for each Gentlemen’s Committee member and their guest. Members receive invitations to all Cattle Baron’s Ball social events.
