Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, recognized worldwide as the first family of golf and tireless philanthropists with a passion for children’s charities, recently hosted a charity wine dinner benefitting the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation at Morton’s The Steakhouse in West Palm Beach. A near-capacity gathering of almost 200 people attended the event which raised more than $55,000.
“It couldn’t have been a more perfect evening,” Barbara Nicklaus said. “Morton’s The Steakhouse in West Palm Beach and Terlato Wines were the perfect hosts. It was so generous of them to support our Foundation. The food and wines were fabulous; the atmosphere was perfect; and everyone who attended seemed so happy to be there! It was a great group! And, to top it off, we raised significant funds to help children in our area.”
Guests had the opportunity to meet the Nicklauses, sample Jack Nicklaus Wines, bid on prestigious and one-of-a-kind silent auction items and enjoy Morton’s signature taste-tempting cuisine.
“It was a wonderful evening and we are honored to have been given the opportunity to host such an amazing event supporting the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation,” said Lisa Lewis, General Manager of Morton’s The Steakhouse in West Palm Beach. “We had a fantastic turnout and everyone had a terrific time.”
The mission of the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation is to provide support for activities that advance and enhance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of childhood diseases and disorders. In addition, it supports not-for-profit programs and projects aimed at children’s health, safety, and well-being.
