Aspen resident Lance Armstrong has 145,000 reasons to be happier this ski season when he is tackling Ajax as his LIVESTRONG charity golf tournament in Plano, Texas raised $145,000.  The Swing Fore! Yellow Charity Golf Classic featured nearly 200 golfers including Dallas Maverick Jason Kidd and Plano Mayor Phil dyer.

Texas State Senator Florence Shapiro came as well as The Shack Team and all got to play at the beautiful Gleneagles Country Club.  Donations are still coming in, so the total amount raised will be higher.  Lance Armstrong is seemingly trying to catch snowboarder and Tamarack Ski Resort owner Andre Agassi for the most charitable athlete.  He’s getting close!
