Help Support Our Cause


Our group’s fundraising efforts began in 2006 with the creation of The Fore Life, Fore Hope Charity Golf Tournament.  Dave and Brian Ellenbecker's mother was diagnosed with uterine cancer that summer.  They were eager to find a way to help raise funds to donate to cancer research causes in the hopes of advancing treatment options, and ultimately finding a cure for this terrible disease.  In 2008, the Strikes For Hope Charity Bowling Tournament was added, and in 2011, the Spikes For Hope Volleyball tournament debuted. 

Since 2006, Dave and Brian were joined in organizing the tournaments by several friends, including Danielle Shepstone, John Germano, Lisa Ellenbecker, Laura Monfre, Steve Backus, and many others.  Hundreds of supporters have contributed through participation, donations, sponsorships, and fundraising.  100% of all proceeds are donated to The Medical College of Wisconsin - Cancer Center.  We cannot thank everyone enough for their continued support, and we look forward to putting on many more amazing events in the future!
