SAG Foundation hits the green

The Stanley Cup hockey championship wasn’t the only big sports event on June 11.

The Screen Actors Guild Foundation hosted its third annual L.A. Golf Classic at the Lakeside Golf Club, to benefit the org’s Catastrophic Health Fund.

JoBeth Williams, president of the board of the SAG Foundation, introduced host Ron Perlman at the dinner ceremony.

“Ron is one of the foundation’s best weapons: a weapon of mass education,” Williams said.

As for being host, Perlman said, “I thought it was absurd because I thought they can do way better than me. But when no one else stepped up, I thought, well, it’s your funeral.”
