About 

Welcome to the Pink Pickle Ball charity event for the Desert Cancer Foundation! 100% of all proceeds will be donated to the DCF in order to assist those who need our help most!


The Desert Cancer Foundation's mission is to pay for cancer care for local valley residents who need financial assistance with care and treatment. For individuals who cannot afford vital care, DCF’s program covers insurance deductibles, premiums, co-pays, co-insurance, and other costs associated with cancer and allied diseases.

We are overjoyed to be able to support this foundation and cause. Thank you to everyone who is joining us on this journey and we will see you on the courts! For more info about the DCF, visit desertcancerfoundation.org or text

Sumo Dog

JEFFREY LUNAK • CHEF • OWNER • TOP DOG

Sumo Dog takes the American Classic hot dog and redefines it with Japanese ingredients, inspiration and tradition. It is the brainchild of Jeffrey Lunak, a veteran of “Iron Chef” Morimoto’s Restaurant Group. Sumo Dog explores the combinations of the American classic with a heavy nod to the Japanese Izakaya.
Who are we? We are the American band who just got back from touring Japan. We are the All-Star Baseball team who mastered Karate. We are both a dragon dipped in mustard, and an eagle topped with nori. We are all things stars, stripes and big red suns. And we are here to fill your belly, warm your soul, and make you smile.
