Legends of golf — Nicklaus, Trevino, Palmer & others — gather to raise money for Dana Quigley’s ailing son

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.”

Mee, along with his children, had to balance caring for his wife, who was dying of brain cancer, with dealing with escaped tigers, raising endangered animals, working with an eclectic skeleton crew and readying the zoo for a reopening.
Worldwide Ticketcraft had the opportunity to supply a TicketHawk printer to have on the set during the filming of “We Bought A Zoo.” It is featured in the end of the movie. A portion of this video clip is in production and we will post once obtained.

The Answer to Your Auction:
Chinese Raffle Tickets, Penny Sales or Auction Tickets are all the same idea. It is basically two parts:
1) The Auction: Your bidders will purchase as many tickets as they see fit. Then, peruse down the aisle to place their lucky ticket in the bowl of each item they fall in love with. The more tickets placed for one item will show how much they really want it and therefore increase their chance of winning.
2) The ‘Exciting’ Raffle: After all the bids have been placed the tickets are all used up, yay! Here comes the anxious part of the event. A winning ticket is drawn from each bowl for each item. You and your bidder will jump for joy and leave for home happy as can be.
Wishing you the best event,

From highlighting industry trends and innovations, attending motivational networking events and exhibiting to many professionals Intix 2011 : 32nd Annual Conference & Exhibition proved to be a very successful event, once again.
We are proud of our BabyHawk Thermal Ticket Printers. They were a hit! An exciting number of venues showed interest during the exhibition.

And you know it’s worth mentioning the Gala – Dinner and dancing on the Bay Cruise was simply wonderous. What an extremely beautiful and social night.
The next morning, Worldwide Ticketcraft and Choice Ticketing were happy to attend and sponsor the Annual Business Meeting Breakfast. It’s always nice to see friendly faces over coffee, pancakes and eggs!
