Danny Gans Partee Fore Kids

The First Tee of Southern Nevada has announced that the annual Danny Gans' Partee Fore Kids will continue in honor of the late entertainer and will be held on Monday, Nov. 2, 2009.

Cox Communications, Las Vegas has committed to a five-year sponsorship of the tournament to ensure the event will continue in Gans' name and continue to raise funds to support children in Southern Nevada.

The tournament draws entertainers and athletes to raise money for The First Tee of Southern Nevada and its Danny Gans Junior Golf Academy. The 2009 Celebrity Pro-Am Memorial Event will honor Gans and will be hosted by strip headliner Rita Rudner. It will be held at DragonRidge Country Club in MacDonald Highlands in Henderson.

The 2009 Partee Fore Kids weekend will be held Oct. 30 thru Nov. 2 and will include a Celebrity Welcome Partee and a Celebrity Texas Hold'Em Poker Partee. The event will culminate with the Celebrity Pro-Am Memorial golf tournament hosted by DragonRidge Country Club on Nov. 2.

Now in its 15th year, the annual Partee Fore Kids has brought entertainers, athletes and community-oriented corporations together to support more than 65,000 local youth who participate in First Tee programming. Last year's featured entertainers, athletes and PGA and LPGA Tour golfers included Willie Gault, Stephanie Louden, Mike Maddux, Jeff Gallagher, Kate Linder, Dan Jansen and Kevin Sorbo and many others.

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department ice hockey team will participate in a charity ice hockey game against the Kilroy's Ice Hockey Club at 5 p.m. on July 18 in the Sobe Ice Arena at the Fiesta Hotel and Casino located at 2400 N. Rancho Road.

Billed as the "Shootout in the Desert", the game will raise funds for the various charities and youth organizations supported by the Kilroy's Foundation, including ALS, (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Keep Memory Alive, and youth boy's and girl's hockey development, and other support causes.

The Las Vegas Ice Cats Mini-Mite team, with players aged 5-8 years old, will compete in an exhibition game during the first and second intermissions.

Players on both teams play on various Las Vegas based adult teams, and many compete in the Kilroy's Ice Hockey Club schedule at the Sobe Arena.

One of their teammates, and former President of Nevada Power Company, Steve Rigazio, succumbed to the debilitating disease in 2001. Since then, the club has been actively raising funds for ALS research and to support the local ALS effort.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for 12 years and under and will be available at the Sobe Ice Arena box office on the day of the event.

SELF DEFENSE

Helen Meyer Community Center

Understanding threatening situations and the tactics and skills to escape them are the lessons learned during the new Bujinkan Ninjutsu classes for youth and adults at Helen Meyer Community Center, 4525 New Forest Drive. Youth classes, for those ages 7 to 15, meet from 8 to 9 a.m. while the adult classes, for those ages 16 and older, take place from 9 to 11 a.m.

All classes are held on Saturdays and begin four-week sessions on Aug. 8. The cost for each four-week session is $25 for the adult class and $18 for the youth class.

Richard "Deshimura" McCall leads the training made famous by Masaaki Hatsumi, grandmaster of authentic Ninjutsu training from the Binjinkan Ninjutsu Dojo in Noda City, Japan. The classes place heavy emphasis on thorough understanding of self-defensive tactics, strategy and the development of "kuji-in," a ninja's "inner sense" that helps to avoid attacks and other dangerous situations before trouble arises. McCall, an eighth-degree black belt, has more than 45 years of training and teaching experience.

Classes are for beginners and were created as an orientation into Ninjutsu training. Those interested in the Bujinkan Ninjutsu classes for youth and adults can call the Helen Meyer Community Center at 455-7723 or visit the Web site at www.accessclarkcounty.com/parks.
