-- Beaumont, CA: On Monday October 22nd, 2012, Riverside County Supervisor Marion Ashley and the Economic Development Agency will launch the second annual golf classic to benefit the Edward-Dean Museum & Gardens in Cherry Valley. The Morongo Band of Mission Indians has stepped up again this year inviting the County to stage the Golf Classic at the “sleek, powerful and precise” Morongo Golf Club at Tukwet Canyon. “We are honored and very excited to have Joe Mantegna and Luc Robitaille hosting and playing in this annual Golf Tournament to benefit Riverside County’s Edward-Dean Museum & Gardens,” stated 5th District Supervisor Marion Ashley. “We believe Joe and Luc’s participation will greatly increase support for this jewel of a museum.”
Star of the hit television crime series, Criminal Minds, Mantegna has had an illustrious career starring in such movies as The Rat Pack, Elvis & Annabelle, and Cars 2, which culminated with receiving a Star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame in 2011. Luc Robitaille is undoubtedly one of the greatest and most popular players to ever lace up a pair of hockey skates. The one time LA Kings captain won a Stanley Cup with the Detroit Red Wings before returning to the Kings where he finished out his career in 2006 as the highest scoring left winger in NHL history and holder of several Kings franchise records as well as numerous playoff records. Inducted into Hockey’s Hall of Fame in 2009, Luc became the president of business operations for the LA Kings where he was an integral part of the management team that this year brought the Kings their first Stanley Cup in franchise history. “One of the biggest joys in my life, outside of winning the Stanley Cup, is my son’s passion and love for Music & the Arts. Therefore I so look forward to being a part of the ‘Round the World in 18 Holes Golf Classic to benefit the Edward-Dean Museum & Gardens. It will help the Museum’s mission of introducing the Arts to another generation of school children,” remarked Robitaille.
“Joe Mantegna and Luc Robitaille will be bringing their celebrity “cool factor” to the Inland Empire for this annual Golf Tournament to benefit the Edward-Dean Museum & Gardens,” said Assistant County Executive Officer/EDA Rob Field. The Golf Classic is in support of the museum’s programs, which helps to provide local school children with tours designed at enriching the knowledge of European & Asian decorative arts and cultural diversity.
The ‘Round the World in 18 Holes Golf Classic will be held on Monday, October 22nd at the Morongo Golf Club at Tukwet Canyon in Beaumont, CA. For more information on this benefit for the Edward-Dean Museum & Gardens, please visit www.edward-deanmuseum.org/
