The Malibu Golf Classic, one of Women In Film’s best-known and most popular events, takes place every summer at the Malibu Golf Club. A relaxing, informal day of golf, clinics and contests for prizes followed by cocktails, a reception dinner and an auction, the Malibu Golf Classic gives members and guests a chance to network with fellow WIF members and other industry professionals and tee up alongside Gary Sinise or Samuel L. Jackson.
Players of all levels are invited to participate.
What started as a golf game between members in 1998 has become a well-established industry event, where players and sponsors contribute thousands of dollars to WIF’s ever-growing slate of programs, workshops, scholarships and grants.
But in spite of its growth, the Malibu Golf Classic has retained much of it’s original low-key beach-town aura where celebrities such as actor Louis Gossett, Jr., Edward James Olmos, Dennis Haysbert, Martin Sheen, Carl Weathers, The Brady Bunch Movie and Private Parts director Betty Thomas, actress Jane Seymour and model/actress Shari Belafonte mix it up with fellow golfers and enjoy the spirit of friendly competition.
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT!
For this year's Classic we again have the Golf Ball Drop Challenge sponsored by Physician's Choice Dialysis. Even if you can't attend in person, you can score a hole-in-one. For a donation you get a stake in one or more golf balls that will be dropped from a helicopter over hole #1 on the Malibu Golf Club course.
Whoever donates the ball that goes in the hole (or the one that gets closest) will win two tickets to the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards® Ceremony on September 23, 2012 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.
The donation packages will be:
1 ball - $ 10
2 balls - $ 20
3 balls - $ 25
5 balls - $ 40
10 balls - $ 80
25 balls - $ 175
