Colleen's Dream Foundation
This coming winter, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Scottsdale is excited about putting together a Tee Sponsorship for Colleen's Dream Foundation on Feb. 24, 2016 at the Arizona Biltmore Golf Club. Colleen's Dream Foundation first began in 2012. This foundation was set up to raise money for research and early detection testing for ovarian cancer, created by Colleen herself after she was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer in 2007. Not much known about ovarian cancer compared with other women's health issues, and Colleen's Dream Foundation's mission is to measure success in two ways – money raised, and lives touched. Their plan is to make sure that no life is taken because of their financial means. The more money that is donated means that more people will be given the opportunity to fight for their lives.

The last few years TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Scottsdale has donated moves to Future For Kids in exchange for a hole sponsorship and a foursome at their annual charity golf tournament. We have five employees here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Scottsdale who are avid golfers, and attempt to play in every charity tournament available during the year.
