Sag Foundation Doing ‘home Improvement’ On Upcoming Golf Classic | Backstage

TreeHouse Inc. reports receiving more capital investment – Austin Business Journal

Tim Allen, who played Tim The Tool Man Taylor on the 1990s sitcom, and Richard Karn, who was his sidekick on the fictional show-within-a-show Tool Time, are teaming up to host the Screen Actors Guild Foundation’s annual Golf Classic, which has become the biggest celebrity golf tournament in the country, according to JoBeth Williams, president of the SAG Foundation. We have more celebrity golfers playing in our charity fundraiser than any other, which makes us feel tremendously proud because its all about actors helping their fellow actors, she stated. Allen said he and his co-star have played in the tournament since its inception, so its about time the SAG Foundation asked us to host. He added, All kidding aside, its a great cause. We help raise money for the Foundations assistance programs which help our fellow actors. We also spend the day golfing with friends which does wonders for our games.

The Austin-based company collected the capital from 19 investors, according to a Friday filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission . President Jason Ballard couldnt immediately be reached for comment. TreeHouse, founded in 2011, operates an environmentally friendly home improvement store. In October 2011, the company opened its first location at the Westgate Shopping Center in South Austin.
