Mark and Marcy Few have hosted this event for four years, and each year exceeds the previous year. We have decided to let the pictures do the talking in this exclusive pictorial. (Photos courtesy of Kenny Dee.)
Coaches vs Cancer -- 4th Annual Spokane event hosted by Mark and Marcy Few
Here are some photos of the Coaches vs Cancer fundraising event held August 26 and 27, 2005, in Spokane, Washington. In May, 2005, Gonzaga University Men's Basketball Coach Mark Few and wife Marcy were honored in New York City for their efforts on behalf of "Coaches vs Cancer".
This year's event was blessed with great weather, great atmosphere and an outstanding group of celebrities. In addition to the funds raised through the weekend's golf event and dinner -- special recognition was given to Zags Dan Dickau, Ronny Turiaf and Brian Michaelson. A portion of the proceeds generated from Dickau's mid-summer celebrity classic and the summer Barnstorming event (organized by Turiaf and Michaelson) went to "Coaches vs Cancer".
A tip of the cap to all involved in this event:
Dinner at the Davenport Hotel
Dan Dickau shows no ill effects from the drubbing received at the hands of Blake Stepp the previous day. Dickau shook off the devasting loss on Friday with a great round on Saturday -- which included holing out from 148 yards with a 9 iron.
