About Tim Venturi
In January of 2009 Tim was diagnosed with bladder cancer. For nine months he underwent painful treatments here in the valley in hopes of saving his bladder. After the last set of treatments his doctor gave him the painful truth that there was nothing more that could be done. He sent Tim to Loma Linda Medical where he was told the only way to save his life was to completely remove his bladder. On September 11 Tim checked in for what was to be a routine surgical procedure. The surgery came off without a hitch, but it was the post surgical time that put us all in for a long hard battle. He ended up in Intensive Care, not once but three times during his two and half month stay at Loma Linda. He was in a coma for 2 1/2 weeks at which that time they gave him only a 20 percent chance of survival. He has made a remarkable recovery thanks to the wonderful doctors and nurses at Loma Linda, to whom we owe a great deal of loving appreciation. Bladder cancer is the 4th most common cancer among men and 5th most common overall. A basic awareness of the symptoms and early treatment could save lives and prevent suffering.

Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton will top the 2015 Stagecoach Country Music Festival, festival organizers announced Monday morning.
The ninth edition of the popular country music festival will take place, Friday, April 24 through Sunday, April 26, 2015 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio.
Tickets for this year’s edition go on sale Oct. 14 at 10 a.m. Tickets are $269 for general admission, $799 for the corral area reserved seating and $799 for the corral standing pit.
While Stagecoach has always had some rock tucked away at the Palomino Stage, this year’s lineup has the most rock since 2008, when Eagles headlined a night and John Fogerty played.
Among the big guitars headed to Stagecoach are Texas bluesmen ZZ Top, Gregg Allman, George Thorogood and the Destroyers and Eric Burdon and the Animals.
As always, the festival brings some of the biggest up-and-coming names in country as well as taps legends to perform.
Also on the bill for this year’s festival are Jake Owen, Kip Moore, Kacey Musgraves, Merle Haggard, Dierks Bentley, Justin Moore, The Band Perry, Sara Evans and more.
McGraw, Owen, Moore, Musgraves and Haggard are scheduled for Friday, April 24. The bill that day also includes The Devil Makes Three, Parmalee, The Time Jumpers with Vince Gill, Dawn Sears, Kenny Sears and Ranger Doug Green, Sturgill Simpson, The Lone Bellow, Parker Millsap, Brothers Osborne, The Handsome Family, Lydia Loveless, Pegi Young, Lindsay Lou and the Flatbellys and Cam Ochs.
On Saturday, Lambert, Bentley, Moore and ZZ Top will perform. Other artists include Eli Young Band, Cassadee Pope, the cast of the hit show “Nashville,” featuring Charles Esten, Clare Bowen and Chris Carmac, Steve Earle, The Cadillac Three, Mac Davis, Nikki Lane, John Moreland, John & Jacob, The Quebe Sisters Band, Daniel Romano, Della Mae, Clare Dunn, Anais Mitchell and Old Salt Union.
Shelton, The Band Perry, Evans and Thorogood top the closing night of entertainment, but Sunday will also include sets from Jerrod Neimann, Frankie Ballard, The Oak Ridge Boys, Hot Rize, Outlaws, The Swon Brothers, Maddie & Tae, Chris Janson, Keith Anderson, Chatham County Line, Logan Brill, Luke Amelang, Ben Miller Band and Andrew Combs.
All of the headlining acts are return headliners for the festival. Shelton, who is a celebrity coach on “The Voice,” performed at San Manuel Amphitheater in Devore on Sunday night.
He and wife Lambert performed at the festival in 2012.
McGraw, however, is making his first stop at Stagecoach since 2008.
RV camping options run $550-$950 and include a tax from the City of Indio. Those interested in camping must fill out a form by Thursday, Oct. 9. From there, applications will be randomly selected to fill out the spots. Those who camped in 2014 do not need to re-apply. They already have been notified of the camping options.
Stagecoach is offering layaway options again for 2015. Also, children 10 and under get into the general admission area of the festival for free. (If you are purchasing the VIP Corral passes, the kids will need them, too, unless they’re two or younger.)
In June, the popular country music festival mimicked its hipster cousin, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, and put a limited number of tickets for the following year’s event on sale on its website.
Formerly the Kraft Nabisco Championship. The icons of the LPGA will battle it out in the first “Major” on the LPGA Tour March 30-April 5, 2015 at Mission Hills Country Club in beautiful Rancho Mirage, California, located in the heart of the Palm Springs Valley.
This action-packed event will host over 100 of the top women golfers in the world as they vie for a place in LPGA history, the white robe and the legendary leap into Poppie’s Pond.
Rich in tradition, The Ana Inspiration Golf Tournament is one of the longest and most celebrated events in golf, and with the men’s Masters Tournament in Augusta, has enjoyed the longest continuous run of any Major at a single venue.
What to Bring
Sunscreen, hats, comfortable shoes, and binoculars are “must-haves” at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. Small-beach type lawn chairs and golf stools are also permitted.
Coolers, backpacks, large bags, and memorabilia will not be allowed on the premises at any time. Cell phones must be placed on silent. Pagers are not permitted. Cameras are only permitted Monday through Wednesday. Cameras are strictly prohibited Thursday through Sunday.
Grandstands are located on the 1st tee, 9th green, 10th tee, 17th tee, and 18th green with seating on a first-come, first-serve basis. There is no reserved seating.
Our Opening Night Gala at the Camelot Theatres includes wine and hors d’oeuvres reception beginning at 5:30 p.m., and a must-see film starting at 7 o’clock when we proudly present the West Coast theatrical premiere of Bill Teck’s new film about one of Hollywood’s greatest film director’s, Peter Bogdanovich who is featured in One Day Since Yesterday.
“One Day Since Yesterday: Peter Bogdanovich & The Lost American Film” is the story of maverick film director Peter Bogdanovich’s love for both the late Dorothy Stratten and his “lost” film “They All Laughed.” Murdered by her estranged husband as Bogdanovich was editing “They All Laughed,” “One Day Since Yesterday” summons up the romance, heartbreak and devotion present as Bogdanovich bought his film back from the studio when they studio threatened to shelve it, and his efforts to distribute it himself, almost to his own ruin. A real life love story of passion and belief in the power of art. “One Day Since Yesterday” is an homage to the lost era of the 70s American Auteur, staking a claim for “They All Laughed” as the last great film of that time.
Through the story of Peter’s journey with “They All Laughed,” “One Day Since Yesterday” explores all of Bogdanovich’s career (The Last Picture Show,Saint Jack, What’s Up Doc, Paper Moon), and his challenges to see his personal vision vindicated in an era unsympathetic to the bold and unique visions he risked it all on. It’s the story of a lost film, which played The Venice Film Festival in 1981, unavailable in any medium for years and it’s triumphant re-appreciation, championed by filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach, and of the sweet, makeshift family that’s sprung up around They All Laughed’s tragedies — bonds still strong even 30 years later. “One Day Since Yesterday” is a wistful valentine to art, love, loss, redemption and the power of cinema.
PALM SPRINGS, CA, December 20, 2013 – It will be a dual-anniversary when the 20th Annual Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards gala comes to the Palm Springs Convention Center to honor those who have been a big part of D.A.P. over its 30 years of service to the communities of the Coachella Valley.
Curt Ringness, immediate past chair of the D.A.P. board of directors, will receive the 30th Anniversary, Board of Director’s – Distinguished Leadership Award in recognition of his service to the organization since 2000. Terri Ketover, also a D.A.P. board member, will receive the 100 Women Award, in honor of more than doubling the ranks of the 100 Women annual giving program that benefits women and children affected by HIV/AIDS. As a salute to their many years of support to Desert AIDS Project, the very generous David Kaplan and Glenn Ostergaard will be honored with the Partners for Life Award.
One or more yet-to-be-identified “Hollywood Heavies” will also be in attendance, to accept a special Arts & Activism Award honoring “AIDS in Cinema” over the last 30 years. “We’ve also got some great entertainment to keep the evening moving along … guaranteeing you’ll leave with a smile on your face and a song in your heart,” said gala co-chair Jim Casey.
“Whether their entertainment tastes run to Broadway musical theatre, dance, or great movies, anyone attending the 20th Annual Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards will get a bit of it all,” added Barbara Keller, who has been co-chairing this event with Casey since 2009.
See why Jane Krakowski is one of the triple-threats of entertainment today. If you only know her as an actor-comedienne on TV’s 30 Rock or Ally McBeal, you’re going to find out this lady has some serious singing chops, too!
LaTonya Holmes earned the prestigious Joseph Jefferson Award for Best Supporting Actress as “Lorrell” in Dreamgirls and has performed at Sheryl Lee Ralph’s 23rd Annual DIVAS Simply Singing AIDS/HIV Benefit Concert.
Her jazz-pop-gospel blended singing style has taken Nita Whitaker LaFontaine on tour with acclaimed performers like Andrea Bocelli and jazz trumpeter Chris Botti, as well as performance in three musical theater premieres.
Other performers might be green with envy because Eden Espinosa, perhaps most well-known as the green-skinned “Elphaba” in Broadway’s Wicked, has also been selling out her own shows with her powerful, emotionally charged vocals.
Singer-songwriter-composer Tomasina Abate has been rocking stages from Disneyland to Vegas, all the while logging musical theater credits in Cabaret, A Chorus Line, Jekyll & Hyde, and Chicago.
Critically acclaimed for his four-year portrayal of “the Pharaoh” in Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Eric Martsolf is perhaps most widely known to TV fans as “Brady Black” on Days of Our Lives.
Those who went to last year’s Steve Chase gala, already know Ray Leeper as the choreographer behind much of what we all see on TV’s So You Think You Can Dance. He’s back again … with 10 of the SYTYCD All-Stars!
The 2014 gala will mark the sixth year of a seven-year commitment that the co-chairs have made. Over those same years, Casey’s company, Integrated Wealth Management, has been fulfilling a $1.5 million pledge as Presenting Sponsor of the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards.
