Musicians, sponsors and friends enjoyed a day and night classic Hollywood-themed fun at the Music Fund of Los Angeles 18th annual golf tournament at Pasadena’s Brookside course on Oct. 28, 2019.
It was a beautiful Southern California day for golf, and attendees to our “Hooray for Hollywood” event were greeted by warm sunshine, complimentary food and drink from the world-famous Pink’s Hot Dogs truck, and live musical entertainment from the Hodads.
The party continued into the evening at the banquet with more live music, a hosted bar and dinner banquet, silent auction, raffle drawing, and awards ceremony. Attendees bid on a wide selection of enticing silent auction items including an exclusive stay at a private Big Bear cabin, Robby Krieger signed photo, LA Philharmonic concert tickets, a signed original script to “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” Morongo Casino vouchers, and musical scores signed by major film composers including the films “Captain Marvel,” “Star Wars,” “Toy Story,” “Spider-Man,” “The Naked Gun” and “Ghostbusters.”
During dinner, Tournament Coordinator Philip Di Nova and Vice President Rick Baptist presented prizes and award trophies to the tournament winners. We hope all who attended enjoyed your day on the links, and that you’ll tell your friends what a great time you had!
