About Us


Our first event was a golf tournament in September of 2005. While this has become our biggest annual fundraiser, we have expanded with other annual events including a Disc Golf tournament, an Evening at the Greenhouse, a Warrior Combine and semi-annual Texas Hold ‘em Poker Tournaments. Please refer to the Events tab for more details on each.

In just ten years the Faith, Love, Hope, Win Foundation has raised more than $344,000. Through our partnership with the Prostate Cancer Foundation, and their annual matching program, we have contributed $688,000 for medical research targeting improved treatments and a cure for advanced prostate cancer.

Please join us as we continue our battle against prostate cancer and enable us to continue to give the gift of Hope to all men and their families who are fighting this dreadful disease every day. The cure starts here!
