We recently completed the 10th Annual Worldwide Hoops Pool for the NCAA Basketball Tournament and it was a great success. Each year, college basketball fans from Worldwide Ticketcraft’s staff and many of the Company’s clients enter their selections in our March Madness bracket competition hosted by CBSSports. We had a record of 76 brackets entered in 2013. To our honored list of past results, we add Scott Phillips as our 2013 Champion (who had the high score of 105 points) and Krissi Diers with the most games selected correctly (43 out of 63). Congratulations to Scott who is a first time player and to Krissi who was our Pool’s first champion back in 2004. This year, our second place finisher was Krissi with 100 points and we had a tie for third place with 96 points among Linda Forlini, Toby Antonson, and Joan Enters. From Worldwide Ticketcraft’s staff the top finisher was Brian Rogers with 95 points. We look forward to 2014 and hope all the participants will join again and invite many more. For information about joining next year, please contact Mark Turner (email@example.com).
Legends of golf — Nicklaus, Trevino, Palmer & others — gather to raise money for Dana Quigley’s ailing son
By Brian Biggane
Palm Beach Post Staff Writer
PALM CITY —
In putting together a golf foursome for the ages, one couldn’t do much better than Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player and Lee Trevino.
That quartet, along with the likes of Raymond Floyd, Ben Crenshaw and Tom Kite, were among 22 pros who gathered for Sunday’s pro-Am fundraiser at Floridian Golf Club to benefit Devon Quigley, the son of Champions Tour veteran Dana Quigley of West Palm Beach.
Devon Quigley is continuing his rehabilitation from a near-fatal car accident in November 2011 that left him incapicitated with a traumatic brain injury.
“We’re sort of an intimate group; we know each others’ families,” Crenshaw said.
“We’ve all sort of been through the wars, but when something like this happens we know it could be our kid. When the idea was brought forth we said, ‘What a nice thing; we’ve got to do it.’ So we’re only too happy to be here for Devon and Dana.”
Nicklaus took a leading role in the fundraising, hosting a party Saturday night that featured an auction at which Nicklaus and Player offered themselves up to the highest bidder for an 18-hole round. The winning bid was well into six figures, and the auction as a whole raised more than $400,000.
Then came Sunday, where the 22 pros were paired with 72 amateurs, with a goal of raising another $1 million.
“It’s a great cause,” said Palmer, who traveled from his home in Orlando to participate.
“Dana has been a great friend of mine for years, and to see this accident happen is very sad. I just hope that all of this will make it turn, (and) things like this could help make that happen.”
Quigley, who will be among many in the group competing in the Allianz Championship this week in Boca Raton, called the turnout “incredible.”
“This is what the golf community is about: People helping people,” he said. “All our stuff is predicated on charity. Devon has met and knows every one of these guys, and what can you say?”
Devon Quigley, 28, suffered life-threatening injuries the night of Nov. 30, 2011, when his BMW slammed into the back of a truck. Police didn’t offer his father much hope when he arrived at the hospital.
“They told me to go home,” Dana Quigley said. “They’d call me when it was over.”
Fourteen months later, Devon Quigley, who was not covered by medical insurance, is off medication and making progress.
“He’s home in Rhode Island; my ex-wife takes him for rehab every day,” Dana said.
“He’s moving his head now; when he coughs he can lift it back up without help, which is a huge improvement. (That’s) a major breakthrough for a kid they said was never going to make it.
“It’s very, very tiny improvements, the kind that only a family that’s living with him would notice. But they’re huge improvements for us. It gives us a lot of encouragement.” As Quigley spoke, his famous guests were showing their stuff on the driving range, Crenshaw and Kite sending one ball after another on a perfect line while the ever-loquacious Trevino was giving an impromptu lesson to a group of awestruck junior golfers who were serving as caddies for the event.
“This is the easiest game there is,” Trevino assured them. “The ball is just sitting there, waiting for you to do something with it.”
Nicklaus arrived a bit later than most, flying in from his Lost Tree Village home in a helicopter. After a lengthy photo session, he rushed back to take a few more practice swings before the scramble format got under way.
“Friends help friends, and golfers help golfers,” he said. “We had a friend who needed help, and we’re here.”
Asked about the Saturday night gathering, he replied, “We just opened our house. We had a nice group. All those guys opened their hearts and their wallets. They’ve got several hundred thousand dollars more than they expected, so it was really nice.”
As Nicklaus, Palmer, Player and Trevino gathered for photos, Crenshaw, himself a winner of 28 events including a pair of majors, stood back to observe.
“It’s a treat to get them together,” he said. “That’s an unbelievable thing in itself. We know it’s seldom, but it’s extremely special and meaningful when it does happen.”
Feed the Hungry 5K Run in Delray Beach FL – Worldwide Ticketcraft participates in full force.
Written by: Robert Zingarelli
When a benefit, charity or good cause arises, our Worldwide Ticketcraft family responds in a big way. This time it was to help benefit the Keith Straghn Feed the Hungry Race in Delray Beach Florida. Mr. Straghn founded the drive and later succumbed to chronic heart problems while awaiting a transplant in 1995 at age 36. Since then the run has continued each year, growing in size and awareness.
Our troupe of 30 plus Super Heroes awakened bright and early to arrive for the 5K run, hours before sunrise on a Glorious Saturday morning in sunny Florida. We arrived in droves assembled like a Olympic team waiting for Turkey dinner that was 3 plus miles away. The youngsters included Amaya (2), Natalia (5), Yuditd (5) Thessaly (7) and Emaliese (8) – all with fixed eyes on our fearless leader, Kathy! As the starting line horn sounded, amidst the scream of cheers – we were off. Some of us were running, some were walking and some of us were playing catch up, but all still glad to be there for this important cause.
At the finish line, we cheered those walking and hugged as a happy family who supported each other throughout the race. For a much welcomed burst of energy and nutrition, we ate bananas and oranges, happily knowing that we participated in the Feed the Hungry 5K Run on November 17, 2012.
