The Watkins Cup: Charity Golf Tournament and Reception
August 15, 2012 @ 8:00 am - 8:00 pm
UPTOWN Magazine has recently announced the The Watkins Cup, a charity golf tournament and reception, to be held August 15 at Martha’s Vineyard. The Watkins Cup will honor the life of UPTOWN friend and award-winning event marketing and advertising visionary, David Watkins, who passed away in October 2011.
“David’s specialty had always been creating epically stylish events and his most memorable include stuff of legend in pop and urban culture,” said Brett Wright, co-founder/CEO, NuAmerica Agency. “He set an example of how life should be lived: celebrating the present to the fullest and never being too busy to help someone else.”
“Hosting this celebration and benefit at one of his favorite summer destinations seems fitting for our dear friend,” said Len Burnett, UPTOWN Magazine Co-Founder and Chief Revenue Officer/Group Publisher of VIBE Media | Access Network. “We look forward to honoring his memory and raising funds to provide college scholarships to young adults who have the potential to be just as visionary as David was,” said Burnett.
The day’s events include an 18-hole round with a limited group of golf enthusiasts at the serene Mink Meadows Golf Course, along with a luxe reception at the Martha’s Vineyard Resort’s Moët Hennessy Lounge. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Watkins Scholarship Fund.
The golf tournament will be held from 8am to 1pm at Mink Meadows Golf Course, located at 320 Golf Club Road in Vineyard Haven, Mass. A reception will follow, from 5 – 8pm at Martha’s Vineyard Resort, located at 111 New York Avenue in Oak Bluffs.
The Watkins Cup is sponsored by The Original Tee Golf Club, Stealth Group, Smart Water, Moët & Chandon, Belvedere and Hennessy. Steering committee members include Len Burnett, Lisa Cambridge-Mitchell, Malcolm Gillian, Byron Kirkland Chris Sabin, Quay Whitlock, Eric Woods and Brett Wright.
