Third Annual Big Dig in the Desert

Skanska, one of the world’s leading construction and development firms, announced it will once again participate as a founding sponsor of the Valley’s third Big Dig in the Desert event with the American Cancer Society.

WHAT: The Valley’s third Big Dig in the Desert event with the American Cancer Society. Skanska is sponsoring the “Kid’s Zone,” which will feature all types of kid-friendly activities, including Lego building, coloring and crafts.

WHY: Big Dig in the Desert gives local Phoenix children, including those with cancer, the opportunity to operate heavy machinery, including back-hoes, diggers, excavators (with supervision), and much more. Sponsors and ticketholders are “hard hats” for the day, helping operate heavy construction equipment at this family event. More than 1,500 big and little construction “operators,” including over 200 pediatric cancer patients and their families, are expected to attend this unique fundraiser for The American Cancer Society in support of pediatric cancer.

WHEN: 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 3.

WHERE: 5th Avenue & Fillmore - Downtown Phoenix, AZ (Empty Lot)
