The American Cancer Society Island of Palm Beach Unit announced that John O’Hurley, best known as J. Peterman on Seinfeld, will be the host of the 48th Annual 19th Hole Club on March 21 and will perform his one-man show A Man with Standards to benefit the organization on March 20. O’Hurley, the multi-talented star of stage and screen, will be performing his show one night only at The Colony in Palm Beach on March 21 at 6:00pm exclusively to benefit the American Cancer Society.
In a case of life imitating art imitating life, “Mr. Peterman” (portrayed by actor John O’Hurley) will be conducting the auction of one of President John F. Kennedy’s golf clubs to benefit the American Cancer Society on March 21, 2016 at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Fans of the NBC hit Seinfeld may recall the 1996 episode where the character “Elaine” bids on President John F. Kennedy’s golf clubs at the Sotheby’s auction for her boss “Mr. Peterman.” Fast forward to the American Cancer Society’s 48th Annual 19th Hole Club presented by the Addison Hines Charitable Trust where, in a twist of fate, “Mr. Peterman” will play auctioneer and will be offering JFK’s MacGregor wedge golf club to the highest bidder. Making its highly anticipated debut at Trump International Golf Club, the annual 19th Hole Club event will take place on Monday, March 21, 2016, 5:30pm – 8:30pm.
In keeping with tradition of the 19th Hole Club, the early evening social event will include various golf challenges (longest drive, putting challenge, chipping contest) and will culminate at an Awards Reception with exquisite food stations on the Club terrace overlooking the magnificent 18th hole. Hosted for the past 47 years by numerous PGA TOUR pros, previous hosts include Lee Trevino, Raymond Floyd, Davis Love III, Ian Baker-Finch, and all-time golf great Jack Nicklaus, to mention a few.
The golf club to be auctioned is labeled “58 – “59, JFK Palm Beach (1-11-1968)” and will be on public display at the Golfino store at 150 Worth Avenue in Palm Beach March 12 – 20, 2016. The club is expected to be the highlight of the live auction at the event on March 21. Other auction items will include the opportunity to see O’Hurley as “Billy Flynn” in Broadway’s Chicago in Chicago, complete with dinner hosted by O’Hurley following the performance; a 2014 Ryder Cup pin flag signed by all 16 USA Team members including Vice Captain Raymond Floyd, Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Hunter Mayhan, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker and Tom Watson the Captain of team.
In addition to hosting the 19th Hole Club, O’Hurley will present his one-man show A Man With Standards at a one-night only performance to benefit the American Cancer Society on Sunday, March 20, 2016 at 6:30pm in The Royal Room Cabaret at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, Florida.
