RANCHO MIRAGE, CALIF. (June 8, 2011) - The Kraft Nabisco Championship raised $173,843 this year through the tournament's second annual Integrated Wealth Management TICKETS Fore CHARITY program. The LPGA golf tournament made the announcement recently at an Appreciation Luncheon at LuLu's California Bistro in Palm Springs, Calif., with more than 100 charity representatives, tournament officials and sponsors in attendance.

Also at the luncheon, Integrated Wealth Management distributed checks generated from a $25,000 bonus pool from the program. The pool was divided among the charities based on the percentage of overall tickets redeemed by each organization.

The Integrated Wealth Management TICKETS Fore CHARITY program is Kraft Nabisco's multi-year fundraiser in which non-profit organizations from throughout Southern California have the opportunity to sell advance tickets to the tournament and retain 100 percent of the money from the sales. Last year, its first year of the program, the Kraft Nabisco raised $150,000 for 90-some charities. This year, more than 150 charities participated.

"Strategic planning has already started for 2012," Codding said. "We saw tremendous growth in participation among the charities and business community in 2011, but the beauty of this program is its unlimited potential. Every non-profit can participate, and every business and individual in Southern California can purchase tickets and support their favorite cause. We have every reason to believe that TICKETS Fore CHARITY will grow into a million-dollar-a-year program."

The 2012 TICKETS Fore CHARITY campaign is expected to launch this fall. The Kraft Nabisco Championship - the first major of the year for either the men's or women's professional tours - will return to the Dinah Shore Tournament Course at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, Calif., March 26 - April 1.

Palm Springs Life-2009

Eighteen years ago, Bette King designed a nursery for “a princess.” The close friendship that developed between her and clients, as well as her passion for helping people with disabilities, led to the Nov. 14, 2010 fundraising concert
The Man Behind the Music.

The event celebrates Dennis Lambert, who has written and produced hit songs on pop, R&B, rap, jazz, country, and adult contemporary charts. A luncheon gala and evening concert featuring Natalie Cole, the Commodores, Tavares, Player, and other entertainers who have recorded Lambert’s songs benefits
DesertArc, which enhances the quality of life for people with developmental disabilities.

King and her husband have long supported and cared for a young man who suffered brain damage after being in a coma for two years. After visiting DesertArc in Palm Desert, King says, “I decided I needed to help them out.” This summer, she organized the fundraiser.

The seed was planted during a visit with Lambert’s family in Boca Raton, Fla., after she watched a film Lambert’s son Jody made documenting his father’s concert trip to the Philippines. “In the Philippines, you say ‘Dennis Lambert’ and they know who he is,” King says. “Nobody gets married there without a song he wrote [“Of All the Things”]. He was greeted at the airport like Elvis.” After viewing the documentary, titled after that song, King told Lambert, “You are the man behind the music, and you need to come out from behind. People [in the United States] need to know who you are.”

The fundraiser, which combines her love for Lambert and helping people with disabilities, achieves that goal and more. He called on talent who recorded his songs, and King arranged for a venue (
The Show at Agua Caliente Casino), sponsorships, and promotion.

Even the
DesertArc choir will take the stage — singing “One Tin Soldier,” written by Lambert and used as the theme for Billy Jack.

Little did White realize that his appreciation for the music of Neil Diamond would eventually turn into a lifelong journey. Over 9,000 shows later, critics have called Jay the most convincing Neil Diamond performer in the world. A fixture since 1989 as a headliner in Las Vegas showrooms, Jay has thrilled tens of thousands of fans for 25 years from coast to coast and from Ireland to Japan with his remarkable tribute and uncanny likeness to Diamond.

In 2008, Jay made his feature film acting debut playing the role of Neil Diamond in director Ron Howard’s Academy Award-nominated film, “Frost/ Nixon.” Cast as the Diamondesque “Noah,” Jay brings his remarkable performance skills to the soon to be released movie “Beautiful Noise” singing both original songs and pop standards as only he can.

“This is Jay’s first concert in the Coachella Valley and you won’t want to miss it,” King said.
