Pub­lisher’s Note

Sun Sentinel Palm Beach Edition - Society Scene - Palm Beach - - Front Page -

Ev­ery­thing I know about golf I learned from Cad­dyshack. Well, that is not com­pletely true, but I have a spotty knowl­edge of the rules. Al­though I have been a spec­ta­tor at many golf tour­na­ments, the clos­est I have come to par­tic­i­pat­ing in the game (other than play­ing Gooney Golf at that place on 441 – na­tives, you know the one I’m re­fer­ring to) is driv­ing the bev­er­age cart in the Bobby Bow­den Golf Clas­sic – a su­per fun job I might add. With that said, it’s time again to kick-off the 4th an­nual Com­cast Cares Golf Clas­sic, an event which raised $120,000 last year to ben­e­fit South Florida. If you haven’t heard about it un­til now, the event is sim­ple: Play­ing golf + par­ty­ing for a good cause = a day well spent. That’s all there is to it. So to an­nounce this year’s ben­e­fi­cia­ries…drum roll please… pro­ceeds from the tour­na­ment will ben­e­fit the Sun Sen­tinel Chil­dren’s Fund and the Broward Per­form­ing Arts Foun­da­tion to help chil­dren and fam­i­lies in our com­mu­nity. Com­cast has a long­stand­ing com­mit­ment to serv­ing the com­mu­ni­ties where their em­ploy­ees and cus­tomers live and work, and the Com­cast Cares Golf Clas­sic is just one of the many ways they give back. They are one of our com­mu­nity’s big­gest sup­port­ers, and we’re thrilled to be a part of the tour­na­ment’s his­tory.

The big day takes place Mon­day, De­cem­ber 8 at Grande Oaks Golf Club – yes, the very same course where Cad­dyshack was filmed. See the con­nec­tion here?

So with the De­cem­ber date a few months away, I have to get this golf thing to­gether. It just so hap­pens I am go­ing to golfer’s heaven next month - Peb­ble Beach - so I will be sure to take notes. I mean, if you’re go­ing to go all out you might as well start with the best!

And fit­tingly enough, smart tar­tan, clubby ar­gyle and prep-owned plaid just hap­pen to be in the spot­light for the fall fash­ion trend re­port - it’s the per­fect fair­way fash­ion state­ment. Even at New York Fash­ion Week, the tried-and-true pat­terns showed up in the fall col­lec­tions of La­coste with their sporty golf gear in blackand-white com­bos.

I can’t tell you how ex­cited I am that Com­cast chose the Sun Sen­tinel Chil­dren’s Fund as one of the ben­e­fi­cia­ries and I know I speak for my friends at the Broward Per­form­ing Arts Foun­da­tion when I say a huge thanks to Com­cast. And a spe­cial shout out to the many spon­sors who have come on board so far: the pre­sent­ing spon­sor, Rothstein Rosen­feldt Adler, Un­der­ground Spe­cial­ists Inc., Rain­bow Net­works, Ar­ris Corp, Publix, JM Fam­ily En­ter­prises, Inc, Group­ware In­ter­na­tional, Ca­bleNet Ser­vices, Cy­press Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Pulse Pi­lates, Ed­win Watts, Premier Bev­er­age, Michael Mur­phy and Suzanne Bar­ton, Com­cast Sports South­east, Chima Brazil­ian Steak­house and A&E Net­works. We know it will be the best year yet. We won’t let you down!

So to all you golfers, or those like me who are game for a fun (and fash­ion­able) ad­ven­ture, this is a chance to help in a time of need and have a ter­rific day. I hope you will con­sider par­tic­i­pat­ing in this fab­u­lous event to raise some much-needed money for two great char­i­ties. Even if you can’t make it, please spread the word to ev­ery golfer you know. Let’s show how char­i­ta­ble the golf com­mu­nity can be. So join me on the links - and if all else fails, there’s al­ways the bev­er­age cart!
