What: The RBC Wealth Management Bad Pants Open

Where: The Clubs of Kingwood

PC Moment: So many golf tournaments, so little time. But this bash on the links, benefiting Texas Children’s Hospital Newborn Center offers such a twist on every other charity golf tournament that we can’t help but share the images with you. More than 300 golfers stepped out in the worst or the wackiest ensembles imaginable for the 22nd annual tournament.

Far more than mere fun, since its inception, the event has generated more than $7 million for the neonatal intensive care unit.

Recently renamed to acknowledge RBC Wealth Management’s longtime financial and employee volunteer support, the RBC Wealth Management Bad Pants Open was chaired by Brian Brantley, senior vice president and general counsel of SeaOne Holdings, LLC.

Special guest adding humor and spice to the happening was world long-drive champion Dan Boever, who demonstrated his prowess with a driver.

After the final putt of the tournament, players were seated for an awards ceremony and seated dinner by A Fare Extraordinaire. Winners were awarded plates painted by Texas Children’s patients for both the best golf scores and baddest pants.

Winner of the worst possible golf pants was the Oil States team which costumed as Snow White and her dwarfs: Nikki Mitchell (Bad Apple), Matt Autenrieth (Sleepy), Lloyd Hajdik (Happy), Mike Kief (Sneezy), Allan Taylor (Prince Charming), Ryan Harry (Dopey), Cindy Taylor (Snow White), Chris Drakey (Grumpy), Joey Trahan (Mirror), Eddie Anderson (Bashful), David Osburn (Evil Queen), and Chris Cragg (Doc). This had to be a golf course first.

In a more serious moment Kelly Jett, a NICU nurse at Texas Children’s Hospital, was presented with the NICU Nurse of the Year award, a special recognition awarded at each tournament. And Pearland parents Eva and Philip Quartey gave an emotional speech about the doctors, nurses and other support staff who helped her family through their 136-day long NICU journey with daughter Blessing.

PC Seen: Tournament committee members Mike Schiff, Les Fox, Adam Law, Moose Rosenfeld, Joe Henry, Bill Spillman and Rob Cooksey.
