Congratulations to Robert Mucklow
11th Annual Cattle Baron’s Ball Honoree
The American Cancer Society has announced Robert Mucklow, owner of Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry, will serve as the Honoree for this year’s 11th Annual Cattle Baron’s Ball of Fayette County.
Robert Mucklow was lured to Atlanta in 1986 by the oldest and most prestigious jewelry firm in the southeast, Maier and Berkele, when he became their head goldsmith. In 1996, Mr. Mucklow realized he missed the personal connection with the customer and decided to experiment with retail. Once again, he was able to enjoy direct contact with his patrons that he hadn’t had since his early art fair days in the 70s. With the overwhelming support from this community, Mucklow’s Fine Jewelry has grown from 130 square feet to a 5,000 square feet showroom showcasing the finest gold, silver, and platinum jewelry designs, as well as an array of American made crafts. Mr. Mucklow feels strongly that giving back to the community is his responsibility as a Fayette County business owner.
The American Cancer Society’s 11th Annual Cattle Baron’s Ball has been set for November 2 at Falcon Field in Peachtree City. Put on your cowboy boots and hat, saddle up, and get ready to lasso up a good time – and for a good cause! The evening is full of entertainment, live and silent auctions, games, all night dancin’, and a general store where patrons can take home souvenirs, specialty items, and memoirs from the evening.
The Cattle Baron’s Ball is hoping to raise $150,000 at this event, and every dollar raised by the American Cancer Society is strategically invested in the fight against cancer. “The vital research and programs of the American Cancer Society are leading the way to eliminating cancer as a major health problem,” said Mr. Mucklow. “I’m proud to be the Honoree of this year’s Cattle Baron’s Ball. More funds raised translate into more lives saved.”
The American Cancer Society is dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem by saving lives, diminishing suffering and preventing cancer through research, education, advocacy and service. ACS was founded in 1913 and has national headquarters in Atlanta and local offices in 3,400 communities, involving millions of volunteers across the United States.

Message From the Honoree
I’ll never forget the day in 1986 when I rushed to my mom’s house to tell her the big news: I had landed a great job in Atlanta and would be moving my wife and three daughters to this new land of opportunity. With a weak smile she congratulated me but told me she also had news: she had breast cancer. That was rough. Fast forward 25 years of birthdays, Christmases, weddings, baking cookies with the grandkids and surviving cancer to the ripe old age of 89 thanks to the latest advancements in cancer treatment.
Maybe you haven’t had a mother, father, brother, sister, uncle or aunt experience cancer, but sooner or later it might just touch your life as well. That’s why we should all take this fight personally to fund research to get us closer to a cure for all cancers.
Please join me in “taking it personally”,
