Armand Assante returning to Lakewood Ranch for Phil Galvano Golf Classic
Armand Assante is returning to Lakewood Ranch to hit the links for charity.
The Emmy Award-winning actor will bring star power to the 16th annual Phil Galvano Golf Classic that raises funds for Manatee County’s Public Schools through the Manatee Education Foundation.
This year’s tournament will be held May 18 at the Legacy Golf Club at Lakewood Ranch.
Sponsorships are available at $15,000, $10,000 and $2,500.
The $15,000 "Eagle sponsors" will be able to enjoy an exclusive lunch with Assante and a private round of golf with Bill Galvano, a former member of the Florida House of Representatives, on May 17 at the Longboat Key Club and Resort.
Assante won an Emmy Award for playing the titular mafia kingpin in the HBO movie “Gotti.”
He shared the screen with Demi Moore in “Striptease,” battled Sylvester Stallone in “Judge Dredd” and more recently appeared in the acclaimed Denzel Washington/Russell Crowe drama “American Gangster.”
Assante sat down with the me for an interview in December while in Lakewood Ranch to film "Blind Pass," the second independent, feature-length film by Sarasota-based Midnight Pass Productions and writer/producer/director Steve Tatone.
