Patrick Warburton (“Rules of Engagement,” “Joe”/Family Guy, “Puddy”/Seinfeld, “The Tick”) returns to the Classic Club in Palm Desert on March 1-3rd, 2013 for his annual Patrick Warburton’s “Golf for Kids” Celebrity Tournament benefitting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The tournament was the largest grossing inaugural event in St. Jude’s history and Warburton wants to return this year with a goal of eventually donating $1.7 million dollars (the cost of running St. Jude’s for a day). Patrick’s “Golf for Kids” Tournament will be held at the Classic Club in Palm Desert, CA.
25 celebrities will be partnered with pro-golfers foursomes to support the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where proceeds from the celebrity tournament will go directly to help it continue its mission to advance cures, and means of prevention for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
Television vet, Warburton’s current resume includes CBS’s hit comedy, “Rules of Engagement” alongside co-stars David Spade and Oliver Hudson (premiere on Monday, Feb 4th at 8:30pm), and Fox’s Emmy nominated “Family Guy” (Sundays 8:30pm/7:30pm CST on FOX) as the paraplegic and over-zealous cop, “Joe Swanson.” Patrick is also widely known for the character of “Puddy” on the hit series “Seinfeld,” and the live-action adaptation of comic-book cult classic “The Tick.” Warburton is known to many as the busiest voiceover artist in Hollywood for his many characters including “Kronk” from THE EMPEROR’S NEW GROOVE, “Ken” from BEE MOVIE, “Steve Barkin” from “Kim Possible,” the title character of “Buzz Lightyear of Star Command,” “Brock Samson” on “The Venture Bros.,” and “Big Jim” on “Robot Chicken” just to name a few.
