I’m an award show junkie. I don’t care for the shows themselves all that much, but I live for the red carpet fashion!

PEBBLE BEACH — Beyond the banter and playfulness traditionally exhibited by the members of Club 15, the rowdy group of fans near the No. 15 tee box at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, there is a heart-felt cause — the fight against cancer. Come rain or shine the group seems to bring out a sizable crowd every year at its  “club headquarters,” which consists of a cozy couch for the amateurs and celebrities to stop by and hang out on between shots. “It’s special because despite possible complications or weather conditions the same core group shows up and is not afraid of a little water,” said Steve Kasper, one of the group’s founders. “And somehow, every time the sun comes out.” That was the case Saturday, at least until about noon when the raindrops made an appearance as they had on both Thursday and Friday. Still, a short time later the skies cleared. “We’re trying to make money to donate to the Cancer Foundation,” explained Willi Franz, who is part of the core group that Kasper referred to. Franz lost his wife Debbie to breast cancer three years ago. “This is the one time a year we all get together and see people we haven’t seen all year. It’s a hoot.” This year, breast cancer was specifically focused on with the Club 15 ball caps available in pink and black, the colors of “breast cancer awareness.” The money raised from the sale of the Club’s paraphernalia goes back to the cause. “It’s a cause close to our heart,” said Natasha DiPretoro, administrator for the group. Larry the Cable Guy takes time to pose for a photo at the 15th Fairway, also known as Club 15 during the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Saturday. (Juan Reyes — Monterey Herald) DiPretoro’s father was diagnosed with brain cancer this year. Her best friend Heather MacRae, a Monterey native, died from liver and spine cancer at the age of 40 last summer. She was a well-known Peninsula resident and had won the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society “Woman of the Year” award for raising awareness for the disease. “She had wanted to come out with me to Club 15 this year,” noted DiPretoro. “Unfortunately she didn’t get the chance.” It was 16 years ago that Kasper along with Scott Larson and Larson’s brother Ted, founded Club 15 at the Pro-Am. Ted Larson later died from cancer in 2014. As Scott Larson explained, so many in the group have had loved ones affected by the disease. Since its beginning, Kasper’s father died from it, as did Larson’s mom’s best friend. “Every year it’s affecting another one of our members,” said Larson. Now in its 16th year, Club 15 continues to evolve while still representing the overarching cause of “Stand Up to Cancer.” Larson said they’re working toward getting an official 501(c)(3) status so Pebble Beach can match the funds they earn on their own. “Remember this is 16 years old – we were dumb when we started,” quipped Larson, revealing that once they witnessed Club 15’s popularity grow they couldn’t help but think “Now, what are we going to do with this – with all the attention we’ve grabbed? What good can we do from it?” “We are tour-sponsored but not an official fundraising group with the tournament,” he explained while noting the support they’ve received from Steve John, CEO of the Monterey Peninsula Foundation and AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am tournament director. “So we’d like to be hand-in-hand with the tournament. We want to try to make this thing a real part of the tournament for whatever charities we’re looking to support and do.” Next year the club’s founders even hope to incorporate a benefit concert. “The money from the Club 15 paraphernalia is really more about gaining awareness,” said Larson, noting their loftier goals. While the initial group that shows up can start out as low as 40 or so, as the day progresses, spectators seem to gravitate toward the raucous cheers at Club 15. Some years as many as 800 have gathered. It can’t hurt that it’s where the level of interaction between fans, celebrities and amateur players is as close as it can get. And while it’s never been the intent of Club 15 founders to imitate the antics that go on at the 16th hole during the Phoenix Open held a week earlier, it’s always about professionally supporting the amateurs. The official protocol includes asking the golfers teeing off whether they want to be cheered on or not. On Saturday, actor Greg Kinnear wanted anything but silence as he asked for even louder encouragement and said, “I need all the support I can get.” That’s after he sprinted to the Club 15 couch, sprawled out on it and inquired, “Do you do therapy here too?” The Club 15 crowd talks with Adrian Young around the 15th hole at the Pebble Beach Golf Links during the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Saturday. (Vern Fisher – Monterey Herald) Kinnear was golfing with pro Seth Reeves and arrived after Condloleezza Rice made an appearance diligently choosing tees from the Club 15 giant-size wine glass. Charles Schwab also stopped by. The financial executive/philanthropist asked Larson in a serious tone what membership in Club 15 required. “You just show up,” quipped Larson. After teeing off, Schwab kissed his black Club 15 cap. Later, Andy Garcia and Chris O’Donnell were amongst the other celebrities making an appearance with both amateurs and professionals. Likely not all of them were as lucky as Pascal Grizot, the PGA’s of Europe Honorary President.  Pascal was paired with pro Tommy Fleetwood and twosome Russell Henley and Antoine Arnault, the CEO of French Menswear Company Berluti. Grizot got his sore shoulders rubbed by DiPretoro while taking a break on the Club 15 couch. DiPretoro was happy to do it, still amazed at the fact that it wasn’t raining. “It always shines on us,” said DiPretoro, about the sunny weather. “Every year we get lucky and the sun shines on Club 15.”
