Catalogue Note

Frank and Barbara Sinatra's golf blazers, with matching straw hat

The Invitational, which evolved into an annual event, was planned by Frank and Barbara, the proceeds of which benefited the Barbara Sinatra Center for Abused Children. The theme of the 1990 Invitational was “Frank Sinatra—The Man and His Music” (after Sinatra's 1965 TV special). Throat cancer prevented Sammy Davis Jr. from performing with Sinatra, as was originally planned and advertised, but Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme stepped in, and joined Sinatra at the Marriott Desert Springs Resort Ballroom, and the attendance doubled to 1,000 people.
