Ketel One Vodka Pays Tribute to Arnold Palmer's Accomplishments with Traveling Memorabilia Museum - 'The Arnold Palmer Pavilion' Initiative an Element of Ketel One's Partnership with the PGA TOUR ALISO VIEJO, Calif.--(Business Wire)-- Ketel One Vodka, the official sponsor of the World Golf Hall of Fame, will provide consumers with a behind-the-scenes peek at the life and career of Arnold Palmer with a traveling "mini-museum" and hospitality area - "The Arnold Palmer Pavilion" - that celebrates the career and success of the legend himself. The Pavilion will travel to premier spots along the PGA TOUR, appropriately making its debut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard in Orlando, Fla., and will feature an abundance of Arnold Palmer memorabilia. The Arnold Palmer Pavilion will boast a wide range of memorabilia that tells the story of the golf legend's life. It will include golf memorabilia from Palmer's personal collection, including his golf bags from the 1963 Ryder Cup and 1981 Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard, and other miscellaneous golf-related items. The Pavilion will also feature non-golf memorabilia including pieces from Palmer's passion for aviation, such as historical photographs, outfits and even an old flight log. Additionally, the Pavilion will display Palmer games such as "The Arnold Palmer Family Golf Game," dating back to the 1960s and the unique Vigor Whirl fitness tool Mr. Palmer used and endorsed. Twelve historical photos capturing the excitement and success of Palmer's golf career blown up to 5' x 7' will be free-standing throughout the Pavilion. Timely given the upcoming 2008 Presidential elections, a special display case will be dedicated to Palmer's relationships with numerous U.S. Presidents. Items include a personal letter from President Dwight D. Eisenhower, as well as numerous photos of Palmer with Bill and Hillary Clinton and George W. and Laura Bush, among others. The display will also include a pin created by Golf Digest endorsing Arnold Palmer for President in 1988. "I discovered Ketel One Vodka a long time ago, so I was pleased to begin a partnership with them in November of 2003," Palmer said. "I am honored that Ketel One Vodka has chosen to pay tribute to my life through the Arnold Palmer Pavilion." "Ketel One Vodka is thrilled to be a sponsor of Arnold Palmer and to bring his legendary career to life through the Arnold Palmer Pavilion," said William L. Eldien, President and CEO of Nolet Spirits U.S.A., the parent company of the Ketel One brand. "We look forward to this exciting opportunity to share the story of Arnold Palmer's life while providing guests with a comfortable hospitality area where they can enjoy Ketel One Vodka." The Arnold Palmer Pavilion will feature a Ketel One Vodka-themed bar that will feature the Ketel One Lemonade (Ketel One Citroen and fresh squeezed lemonade garnished with a mint leaf).
