SUNBANK/MIAMI AND SMITH BARNEY SHEARSON TEAM UP WITH DOUGLAS GARDENS CLASSIC

 MIAMI, Oct. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Some people call it a vacation -- others take it very seriously and approach it with reverence. Whichever group you fall into, you won't want to miss the Douglas Gardens Classic, a full day in which you choose your pleasure: golf, tennis, card party, spa pampering or simply a lavish buffet reception. Scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 4, the fifth annual event will take place at the lush Williams Island Country Club.
 Al Golden, chairperson of the Douglas Gardens Classic, announced that SunBank/Miami is sponsoring the Golf Par Excellence Tournament. Foursomes are eligible for prizes in the categories of most accurate and longest drives, closest to pin, and a hole-in-one sponsored by William Lehman Buick. Smith Barney Shearson is sponsor of the Tennis Tournament, which will feature four point and four game round-robin tournament and clinics with a pro. First and second place prizes will be awarded. Tennis co-chairpersons are Arthur Grossberg and Cecily Silberman, and golf co-chairpersons are Muriel Rudolph and Len Weiselberg.
 "A hot event at our last Classic was the Helen G. Rechtschaffer Card Party," said Card Party Chairperson Helen Somerstein. "By popular demand, its back again, featuring a choice of duplicate bridge tournament with Rita Seamon, International Life Master and Teacher; Canasta or Pam." Master points will be awarded as will prizes for winning players.
 Sponsorship opportunities are still available, ranging from $100 for a golf cart to $1,500 to underwrite brunch. The fee for tennis is $100 per player, or $125 for golf. These prices include brunch and the awards/buffet reception. Fee for card players is $65, or $100 if they wish to stay for the cocktail party. All participants will receive a "survival kit" filled with goodies from friends of Douglas Gardens. Cost for the reception alone is $50.
 "All proceeds will benefit the vital transportation system for the residents of the Miami Jewish Home and Hospital for the Aged at Douglas Gardens," said Golden. "Transportation at the Home is used extensively to carry residents to all parts of the 20 acre campus, enabling them to participate in a myriad of events such as arts and crafts, reminiscing hour, birthday and holiday parties, religious services and educational programs. It would be difficult for these frail elderly persons to traverse the campus without this help," he continued.
 Honorary Chairpersons Willie and Celia Trump affirmed this and added, "That's why we need you, the caring members of our community, to come and have a good time at Williams Island on Nov. 4th and support a very worthy cause at the same time."
