Tim Allen & Richard Karn to Co-host SAG Foundation's 5th Annual Los Angeles Golf Classic

The Screen Actors Guild Foundation will hold its 5th Annual Los Angeles Golf Classic benefiting its Catastrophic Health Fund and Emergency Assistance programs for SAG-AFTRA performers and their families on Monday, June 9, at the Lakeside Golf Club in Burbank. The charity tournament will be co-hosted by SAG Foundation supporters and former Home Improvement co-stars Tim Allen and Richard Karn. Allen currently stars in the ABC comedy Last Man Standing and Karn, a recurring guest star on Last Man Standing, recently headlined a regional production of I Ought to Be in Pictures.

The L.A. Golf Classic brings together celebrities and executives from the entertainment industry and beyond to raise vital funds for the SAG Foundation's charitable initiatives. Presenting Sponsor Integrated Wealth Management will return for its fourth consecutive year. Additional major sponsors include United Airlines, the Carson Foundation and Fairway & Greene.

"Richard and I play the SAG Foundation L.A. Golf Classic every year, so it's about time the SAG Foundation asked us to host. All kidding aside, it's a great cause. We help raise money for the Foundation's assistance programs which help our fellow actors. We also spend the day golfing with friends which does wonders for our games. It's a win-win," says Tim Allen, co-host of the SAG Foundation's L.A. Golf Classic.

"Tim and I are honored to host the L.A. Golf Classic. We're both big supporters of the SAG Foundation and this tournament in particular. We're hoping if we step up our participation as hosts, it might karmically translate to our scorecards," said Richard Karn, co-host of the SAG Foundation's L.A. Golf Classic.

The 2014 L.A. Golf Classic Host Committee includes Allen and Karn along with Matt Adler, Tom Bower, Jim Casey, Michael Daniels, Mathis Dunn, Greg Ellis, Patrick Fabian, Jay Ferguson, Robert French, Carmine Giovinazzo, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mitch Haber, Robert Hays, Jeff Herold, Dave Hutton, Greg Itzin, Brandt Kuhn, Dan Lauria, Joe Mantegna, Danny Masterson, Jeff Nordling, Kevin Rahm, Pamela Reed, Chris Rich, Erin Scott, Jonathan St. Clair, Ron Perlman, SAG Foundation Executive Director Jill Seltzer, SAG Foundation President JoBeth Williams and David White.

"At Integrated Wealth Management, we understand the importance of having a safety net in place when financial and medical adversity hits home. The SAG Foundation provides that safety net for many working performers and their families. We're proud to be the presenting sponsor of the SAG Foundation's LA Golf Classic for the fourth year-in-a-row. As a valued client of Integrated Wealth Management, we are committed to doing our part to help ensure the SAG Foundation can continue to provide emergency assistance to performers in crises," said Jim Casey, President and CEO of Integrated Wealth Management.

With the support of the entertainment community and generous sponsors during the past four L.A. Golf Classics and the inaugural New York Golf Classic, the SAG Foundation has raised over $1.2 million for performers facing life-threatening illness and severe economic hardship. To assist in this effort, please visit golf.sagfoundation.org for registration information and sponsorship packages (limited while availability remains).

"The SAG Foundation's LA Golf Classic has become the biggest celebrity golf tournament in the country. We have more celebrity golfers playing in our charity fundraiser than any other, which makes us feel tremendously proud because it's all about actors helping their fellow actors. We work in what can be a very erratic and unsteady profession, so it's vital we support our own when they fall on hard times. This is our fifth year doing it and it just gets better each year," says JoBeth Williams, President of the SAG Foundation.
