Friends of Fogelberg III with proceeds going to the Don and Sybil Harrington Cancer Center of Amarillo, Texas. Musicians honor Dan Fogelberg by playing his music while raising money in the fight against Prostate Cancer. Dan lost his life in 2007 to the same disease. Friends of Fogelberg wants to raise awareness for early detection to save lives.
Our new campaign is “Think Blue Too!” for Prostate Cancer.
While we remember “Think Pink” for Breast Cancer, the door opens to support men in this fight against Prostate Cancer.
Make your plans to come hear a stage full of musicians give of their own time and talent to raise money! It’s going to be a great night at the Globe News Center for the Performing Arts in Amarillo, Texas.

The Amarillo based organization “Friends of Fogelberg” held its 1st Annual Golf Scramble on October 9, 2010 at Comanche Trail Golf Complex. Along with the Great Palo Duro Prostate Putting Relay on October 3, the group raised $2,500, benefitting the Harrington Cancer Center to battle prostate cancer. Legendary singer songwriter, Dan Fogelberg, died of prostate cancer in December 2007 at age 56 inspiring the organization of the group, Friends of Fogelberg. The group’s goals are to raise awareness and to urge men that early screening could save their lives. Organizers believe that the issue of prostate cancer’s time has come and it should be treated with the same urgency and attention that breast cancer receives. The Susan G. Komen Foundation is a great model for Friends of Fogelberg They have done wonderful work at Komen. They “Think Pink.” At Friends of Fogelberg, we “DO BLUE.”
Mission accomplished. 23 miles around the track at Caprock High School in Amarillo Texas to raise money for the Harrington Cancer Center by the Friends of Fogelberg. Thank you for all those who came out today to help.
