When Bob Tallman gets a vision, it becomes a reality within minutes. He's all about action. So when he says he has a mission and is dedicated to assisting the doctors and their patients at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Children's Cancer Hospital, he means it.
And to do that, in the year 2000 Tallman launched a long-term campaign by establishing his own foundation called Bob Tallman's Charities. Based out of Houston, Texas this 501(C) 3 Organization allocates all proceeds from its annual fund-raiser to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Children's Cancer Hospital. His vehicle to raising the funds he gives away is accomplished through his annual golf tournament, better known as "The Pasture Pool Classic".
"With the assistance from all of the sponsors and the golfers that come out and play, this fund-raising effort is possible. We are dedicated to assisting the doctors help MD Anderson's littlest patients to those in their teenage years, " Tallman said. " All it takes is to see our doctors win at helping these innocent children. When they win, we win and that is the greatest reward we can receive."
