 The wait is almost over! On Sunday, February 22, more than 50 of the most intriguing men in Palm Beach County will take to a brand new tented runway on the green when The Arc's infamous WILD Pants Party kicks off Honda Classic Week at PGA National Resort. These sensational men will be wearing some truly eye-catching fashions provided by The Gardens Mall retailers such as Bloomingdale's, J. McLaughlin, Vineyard Vines, Robert Graham, Saks Fifth Avenue and more. ESPN West Palm's very own Josh Cohen and Emerson Lotzia are the masters of ceremony for the evening, so you never know what might happen! And with a stellar team of Event Co-Chairs comprised of Michele Jacobs, Tiffany Kenney, Michelle Martin, Michelle McGann and Florence Seiler, it's difficult to say if there will be more excitement in the audience or on the runway.

This fabulously unique event is possible thanks to Presenting Red Carpet Sponsor The GEO Group Foundation, Gold Gone Viral Runway Sponsors Connie M. Frankino and Provident Jewelry, Haute Lounge VIP Sponsor Pratt & Whitney, and Food Sponsor Brio Tuscan Grille; generous supporters that include Florida Weekly, Jupiter Magazine and The Palm Beacher, JVC Broadcasting, Perfect Vodka, ESPN West Palm and, of course, The Honda Classic and The Honda Classic Couture Club; and VIP table sponsors ADT Corporation, Alane and Varick Foster, The Breakers, Carl Minardo, Celedinas Insurance Group, The Gardens Mall, Greg Zele, Laura and Greg Haseley, Mark Ledger, Quantum House, Simmons & White and Zachary Berg.

Ed McEnroe, Tournament Director for The Honda Classic and a member of The Arc's Board of Directors, is also a former WILD Pants Party model. "I'm ecstatic that the WILD Pants Party is going to be part of The Honda Classic," he said. "We have been great partners for years, and it is exciting to have the opportunity to bring this amazing event to The Honda Classic – and to support such a wonderful organization that is so close to my heart – is fantastic!" Speaking from experience, he added, "It will also be incredibly fun!"

The WILD Pants Party is already on the calendars of hundreds of people in Palm Beach, but there are still a few tickets remaining. This not-to-be-missed bash is already one of the most talked-about events of the season and that talk is getting louder! Don't miss your chance to be part of the fun.
