Celebrating The Life Of Frank Sinatra
DEC 12th 6PM-10PM
The Palm Springs “Toast To The Stars” Mission Statement
Gangsters, presidents, Broadway stars, jazz babies, rock and rollers, and about every actor and wannabee came to both “get away” and to “be seen.” They came to be with one another, relax, swim, sun, dine and have cocktails in style. This, the Golden Era of Hollywood, was the Golden Era of Palm Springs, one and the same.
With dishy tours and exciting events, we have dedicated more than twenty years to keeping the torch of the Golden Era lit, the lore going. We are professionally star struck. This is our way of keeping the glamour of the golden era of Old Hollywood and Old Palm Springs alive. Join us. Let us show you around, toast the stars. It is our passion. It is our mission.

The historic Palm Springs Tennis Club Resort was the elegant vision of “Auntie Pearl” McCallum McNamus. After a round-the-world trip during the 1930’s, “La Grande Dame” of Palm Springs, was intent on creating “the most beautiful club in the world” and the most photographed pool in America in her hometown. Along with attracting tennis greats, The Palm Springs Tennis Club beguiled the glamorous Hollywood set, including Sinatra, who was a member. In 1951, it hosted an addition to the Golden Globes, the ”Henrietta Awards,” naming Jane Wyman and Gregory Peck “Film Favorite of the World.” Through the decades, this precious property has only been improved upon by famous architects and impassioned owners. The charm of the original Tennis Club like fine wine, only improves with time.
Step back into the era of cool and spend the night living the good life. Come join us on this special night to keep the Rat Pack party going, and to commemorate our timeless favorite, forever “The Chairman of the Board.”
