Following a cocktail reception, dinner hosts Whoopi Goldberg and John O’Hurley welcomed attendees to the event before introducing PCF Chairman and Founder Michael Milken. Goldberg, who has hosted numerous PCF events over the years, quipped “I remind him that I do not have a prostate.” Milken opened the evening by discussing the Charles Evans PCF Pro-Am Tour, a fundraiser hosted in conjunction with the Charles Evans Foundation where high-profile amateurs are paired with tennis professionals in four different tennis tournaments during peak seasons of each of the venues – Palm Beach, Fl., Indian Wells, CA, Westchester County, NY and the Hamptons. Joel Paschow and Bonnie Pfeifer Evans, Trustees of the Charles Evans Foundation, then spoke of Charles Evans’s memory, and shared that they were honored to be a part of what PCF and Mike Milken do.

After the brief presentation of tennis, Milken introduced the baseball theme of the event by quizzing the audience’s knowledge of Abbott and Costello’s “Who’s On First” comedy sketch. Following the quiz, Milken invited MLB attendees including Mark Attanasio, Todd Boehly, Jerry Cohen, Tommy Lasorda, Scott Minerd, Tony La Russa, Joe Torre, Mark Walter and Fred Wilpon to the stage for a special rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” while wearing special Prostate Cancer Foundation baseball jerseys. “If you buy a baseball team next year, you could be up here,” said Milken at the performance’s conclusion. Immediately following the baseball players, opera group Forte from America’s Got Talent performed their version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” before singing the classic “Il Sole Mio.”

Once Forte finished their performance, Milken began detailing the work of the PCF Home Run Challenge, which invites MLB fans to pledge a donation for every home run hit from June 1st through Father’s Day, before inviting Tommy Lasorda, Joe Torre and Tony La Russa to join him. All three have participated with the program, with Tommy Lasorda having traveled with Milken for over a decade. Since inception, Milken has attended 401 games and raised over $45 million.

Event host John O’Hurley then introduced Prostate Cancer Foundation CEO and President Dr. Jonathan Simons. PCF has been instrumental in funding extraordinary young scientists with multiple year grants. Their work has saved lives and provided better treatments for prostate cancer patients worldwide. Following the presentation, members of PCF brought up a mock baseball scoreboard with the number 173—the number of young investigators PCF has funded. Milken announced he wanted to increase that number to 200, and opened the floor for donors to pledge $75,000 for three years to support more young investigators. By the time everything was said and done, PCF put 202 new young investigators on the board. Following the pledges, the PCF opened the floor for three live auction packages that raised over $500,000.

Following the auction, Former Pennsylvania Governor Edward Rendell introduced the night’s honoree David Cohen, Executive Vice President of Comcast and Head of the Board of Trustees at University of Pennsylvania. Cohen served as Rendell’s Chief of Staff during his administration, where they collaborated to rebuild Philadelphia’s urban development. Rendell commended Cohen’s support of research to find ways to treat Prostate Cancer. Cohen, a prostate cancer survivor himself, thanked Milken and PCF for their efforts to stop prostate cancer and said he is, “one of tens of thousands of men who’ve benefitted from the funds raised the Prostate Cancer Foundation.”

After the award presentation, Nathan Gunn and Isabel Leonard performed, and were later joined by Forte for a special performance of “Somewhere” from West Side Story, the song the group performed during their Radio City audition on America’s Got Talent. To conclude, John Fogerty performed a special set alongside his son Shane where they performed some of his classic hits, including “Centerfield” which was honored by the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2010.

Event Co-Chairs Included: Mark & Debbie Attanasio, Seth & Marie Bernstein, Todd & Katie Boehly, Michael Lehrman, Ambassador Earle & Carol Mack, Dr. Richard Merkin, Mike & Lori Milken, Artie & Selma Rabin, Neal Rodin & Sharon Schutte-Rodin, Joe & Ali Torre, Eustace Wolfington.

The Charles Evans PCF Pro-Am Tennis Tour was held in Southampton, NY, over the weekend on Friday, August 28, to Sunday, August 30, 2015, raising over $4 million for the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF). This wonderful event, returning for its eleventh year, consists of a round robin tournament teaming 32 amateur tennis players with a current member of the ATP Tour or with one of the legends of tennis for two days of competition.

The Charles Evans PCF Pro-Am Tennis Tour consists of four exciting tournaments each year that are calendared during peak season at each venue.  Each location brings an opportunity to provide not only a unique and individual experience for the amateur player but provides a platform to the community to generate awareness of prostate cancer and the work of the Prostate Cancer Foundation. The PCF Pro-AM Tennis Tournaments has raised over $12.5 million to date over 13 years.

The Pro-Am Tour is a fitting memorial to the life of Charles Evans.  He was committed to helping others, turning his personal tragedies into philanthropic causes.  Charles Evans, an avid tennis player, would be proud of what is being done to fight prostate cancer through these events.  An advocate for the improvement of quality in all lives, he championed many causes including Alzheimer’s, fire safety, health and education.  Charles had a true zeal for life.  From WWII veteran to successful entrepreneur, feature film producer, to a dedicated philanthropist, Charles left his mark and the impact is still being felt today.

Firmly committed to curing prostate cancer, the Prostate Cancer Foundation is the leading philanthropic organization funding and accelerating research globally. Since 1993, its unique strategies for identifying and investing in the most promising research programs have generated life-saving results. The organization channels resources to the world’s top scientific minds—cutting red tape and encouraging collaboration to speed breakthroughs.

As a champion for increased government and private support, PCF has helped build a global research enterprise of nearly $10 billion. Through the generous contributions of our donors, it has funded more than 2,000 programs at more than 200 research centers in 18 countries. For more than 16 million men and their families fighting prostate cancer globally, PCF is a primary source for new standard-of-care and research information. It connects patients, loved ones, care providers and scientists to critical updates, the latest developments, best practices and news from the treatment pipeline.

Hampton Hills Country Club Celebrates its 50th Anniversary



After witnessing Jordan Spieth dominate golf’s major tournaments so far this year, it is time to see if you can hold your own against top competition on a world-class course.

Hampton Hills Country Club, a members-only course celebrating its 50th anniversary, offers its members an inviting clubhouse, an impeccable golf course with high-end amenities all while being just ninety minutes outside of New York City.

Bookended by past major tournament hosts Bethpage State Park Black Course and Shinnecock Hills Golf Club, Hampton Hills is located in the middle of a 2,000 acre pine and oak tree preserve in Westhampton Beach.  The peaceful, wooded setting allows club members to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and participate in friendly competition against a challenging Par-71 golf course featuring dramatic elevation changes.

Built in 1965 by Francis J. Duane, the course at Hampton Hills Country Club is said by members to never play the same way twice.  Duane, a past president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, frequently collaborated with famed golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and designed over a dozen courses with Arnold Palmer including the iconic Sea Pines Country Club course in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Hampton Hills’s course rating is a 73.6, which according to the United States Golf Association (USGA) rates within the average of a good score by a scratch golfer. The course also boasts a slope of 134 out of a maximum 155 for most difficult course according to USGA’s standard.

The club has a full service pro shop available to all members on the premises along with its teaching professionals, both of whom bring PGA and LPGA experience to Hampton Hills to deliver an exemplary sporting experience.

Jack McGown has been the director of golf for the past twenty-eight seasons.  A New York native, McGown has been giving lessons for over thirty-five years. His knowledge of golf and understanding of the terrain is reflected in his dominance of the course: Jack holds numerous course records including two tournament wins on the same day.

Hampton Hills’ teaching professional Patricia Baxter-Johnson has held that position for the past four years.  A Dr. Rick Jensen Certified Golf Coach and Titleist Performance Institute Certified Golf Fitness Instructor, Patricia has had the honor of working with some of the game’s greatest instructors, including Chuck Cook and Todd Anderson.Prior to joining the Hampton Hills’s staff, Patricia played on LPGA circuit and participated including several U.S. Women’s Opens, the Women’s British Open and the LPGA Championship competing against the likes of Annika Sorenstam, Lorena Ochoa and Michele Wie.

Celebrity golfers who have been known to play the Hampton Hills course include Tommy Hilfiger, Russell Simmons, Rudy Giuliani, Kelsey Grammer, Michael Strahan, Justin Tuck, John Starks, FOX’s Bill Hemmer and NY Jets’Nick Mangold.

At the end of the course, members are able to enjoy round of cocktails on the clubhouse’s patio or enjoy breakfast or lunch along with a simple bar menu inside, which overlooks the breathtaking 18th green offering members a friendly reprieve from competition at the Hampton Hills Country Club.
