Teri Hatcher, star of ABC’s hit show “Desperate Housewives”, will play in the Pro-Am at The Principal Charity Classic on Wednesday, June 2, 2010.
Teri Hatcher’s wildly successful portrayal of Susan Mayer in the award-winning ABC Comedy “Desperate Housewives” earned her a 2005 Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild Award, and a 2005 Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy. The role of the single mom searching for love in the sometimes sordid, always intriguing world of Wisteria Lane has vaulted Hatcher to the pinnacle of today’s hottest comic actresses.
Hatcher’s success has continued to grow since her days starring as the unforgettable Lois Lane in the 1994-97 series “Lois & Clark.” She recently became a New York Times best-selling author with her first book, Burnt Toast and other Philosophies of Life, which was released in May 2006. In the critically acclaimed bestseller, she offers a personal, heartfelt and often very funny manifesto on life, love and the lessons we all need to learn—and unlearn—on the road to happiness.
“Teri coming to West Des Moines validates how popular this event is,” said Jamie Alt, tournament director. “Her passion for golf and charitable giving makes her a perfect fit for The Principal Charity Classic.”
