(PALM BEACH, FL) – More than 120 guests gathered for a chance to “Beat the Pro” at the American Cancer Society, Island of Palm Beach Unit’s 19th Hole Club Luncheon and Golf Event on February 28th at
The Breakers.  2010 Honda Classic champion and Florida Gator,
Camilo Villegas, known in the golfing community as “Spiderman” for his unique posture when reading putts, took on guests in a putting contest.

A gorgeous day to be on the green, the event began with a golf clinic and question and answer session with Villegas at the The Breakers’ Ocean Course putting green.   After teaching guests some of his golf expertise, Villegas took part in a putting contest against some of the 19th Hole Club’s committee members and top supporters.   Homer Marshman, Jr. was the winner who went up against Villegas for the final “Beat the Pro” putting contest but Villegas could not be beat.  After the contest, 19th Hole Club members and guests headed to the Flagler Steakhouse for a luncheon and awards ceremony. 
"It was exciting to have Camilo Villegas joining us to raise money for the fight against cancer," said Jamie Zahringer, event chairman.  “The afternoon was amazing and we are so grateful to have such a supportive group involved with the 19th Hole Club event and we thank everyone for an exceptional day.”
Now, in its 43rd year, the 19th Hole Club is very fortunate to have a loyal list of dedicated supporters.  Committee members for the event included:  Roy Apple, Reid Boren, Ray Celedinas, Richard Connaughton, Mark Cook, Glenn Criser, Tim Hanlon, Ken Kennerly, Chris Larmoyeux, Robert Leidy, Homer Marshman, Buddy Marucci, Rob Reveley, Josh Skivington, Leo Vecellio and George Weston.
In addition to committee members and event chairman, guests in attendance included Roy Apple; Rand Araskog; Helen Bernstein; Elizabeth Bowden; Ray Celedinas; Mark Cook; Arlette Gordon; Christopher Larmoyeux; Bobby Leidy; Homer Marshman, Jr.; Kevin McCluskey; Kelly Moore; Gina and Jeff Sabean; Mac Schwebel and Tom Quick.
Recently rated the "fittest athlete in the game of golf" by ESPN Magazine, it was fitting that Villegas spoke to guests during the luncheon about how crucial it is to live healthy with regular exercise, good nutrition and a smoking-free lifestyle, to be able to prevent cancer and many other diseases. Villegas also feels there is a need to educate children to eat healthy from an early age. 
One of the highlights of the luncheon was the Homer Marshman Community Service Award presented to Bob and Arlette Gordon for their commitment and involvement over the past 40 years to the American Cancer Society.  Mrs. Gordon said they will continue their support until a cure is found for this deadly disease.
Sponsors for the event included Diamond Members Mr. Rand V. Araskog; The Fortin Foundation of Florida, Inc.; Mr. M. Mac Schwebel; Mrs. Sylvia Slifka and Mr. and Mrs. James D. Zahringer.  Platinum Members were Mrs. Harold P. Bernstein; Mr. Ramsey A. Frank; The Mary Alice Fortin Foundation; Mr. and Mrs. Christopher Larmoyeux; Mr. George Marucci, Jr.; Mrs. Sarah Ross Soter and Mr. and Mrs. Leo Vecellio.  Golden Circle Members included Mr. Roy Apple; Mr. Leonard Baron; Mr. William Caler; Mr. Ray Celedinas; Mr. Mark Cook; Mr. and Mrs. Alan Curtis; Mr. Mark E. Freitas; Mr. and Mrs. Robert Garvy; Mr. Irving Gerstein; Mr. and Mrs. Robert G. Gordon; Mrs. William E. Hutton; Mr. Robert Leidy, Jr.; Mr. and Mrs. Howard Lester and Mr. Joshua Skivington.
The putting contest was coordinated by Tim Collins, Director of Golf at The Breakers and John Webster, Director of Golf Instruction at the John Webster Golf Academy at The Breakers, both generously donated their time to the American Cancer Society.
Proceeds raised through the American Cancer Society’s 19th Hole Club on Palm Beach, and the support of our generous donors, further the organization’s mission to eliminate cancer as a major health problem.  The American Cancer Society combines an unyielding passion with nearly a century of experience to save lives and end suffering from cancer.  We save lives by helping people stay well through preventing cancer or detecting it early; by helping people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis; by finding cures through investment in ground breaking discovery; and by fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation’s largest non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing about $3.4 billion, we turn what we know about cancer into what we do.
For more information on the American Cancer Society, please contact Victoria Peyton, Senior Executive Director at the American Cancer Society, Island of Palm Beach Unit, (561) 655-3449 or .
