Colleen's Dream Foundation's Evening of Dreams Gala

| June 28, 2017 | Parties

Colleen’s Dream Foundation drew big crowds and proceeds at its 4th annual Golf Tournament and Evening of Dreams Gala.

THE PARTY Local celebrities, NFL players and 500 other guests gathered at the JW Marriott Camelback Inn Resort & Spa for Colleen’s Dream Foundation’s Evening of Dreams Gala and the previous day’s golf tournament, raising $250,000 in support of ovarian cancer research. Cocktails from Tito’s Vodka flowed freely; The Walkens performed from their rich repertoire; and Tom Ross, who raised more than $23,000 for Colleen’s Dream in 2016 by leveraging his climb of Mount Kilimanjaro, took home the Dreamer of the Year title. Ross, the single largest fundraiser last year, also spread Drury’s ashes at the summit on his climb in honor of an unfulfilled goal of the foundation’s namesake. THE GUESTS NFL players like Drew Stanton, Jay Feely, Lorenzo Alexander, Richie Incognito and Marcel Reece looked dapper at the gala after heading up the tournament’s foursomes on the links. THE HIGHLIGHTS Lavish items like an intimate dinner at Tiffany & Co., a Hawaiian tour and even a miniature schnauzer puppy were part of the night’s live auction. -Lauren Loudermilk
