Aaron Goes Golfing to Support the Actors Fund

August 4, 2011 • Category: Gallery, General News 0

On July 25th, Aaron Tveit attended the The Actors Fund’s CelebriTEE Golf and Tennis Outing. There, he made a special appearance playing golf and helping raise money for the fund. He was there with his father, Stanley, who also competed in the games. A couple of pictures from the event have been added to the Gallery, and you can read a bigger summary on the day below:

Last Monday, Actors Fund supporters — and sports enthusiasts — headed to Tenafly’s historic Knickerbocker Country Club for The Fund’s CelebriTEE Golf & Tennis Outing, proceeds of which benefited The Lillian Booth Actors Home in Englewood. In spite of the inclement weather, attendees spent the afternoon playing their choice of golf or tennis, then headed to the clubhouse for a cocktail hour, during which Golf Chair Peter Gallagher introduced the day’s Tennis Chair, Liz Callaway, who sang two perfectly-chosen medleys accompanied by Phil Reno. Dinner also featured an exciting raffle of golf equipment, led by our friends at IATSE-Local One – including Robert “Toby” McDonough and Bobby Score, to whom we extend a special thank-you for managing the entire outing! Also joining our guests were Aaron Tveit, star of Catch Me If You Can, and Ernie Sabella, most recently starring in the Broadway hit Curtains, both of whom did well out there on the course!


Remember: The previous night, on July 24th, Catch Me If You Can had a special performance for The Actors Fund. A picture from that night can also now be seen in the Gallery.

Remember this contest that was hosting? Well, the results are in and Aaron Tveit won! This is the second time he’s been voted hottest, the first being in 2009. His female winning counterpart is Teal Wicks, who is currently making her Broadway debut in Wicked — a musical that Aaron’s been in as well. What do you think, should this Elphaba and this previous Fiyero reprise “As Long As You’re Mine”?
