ClubCorp and Le Cirque Team Announce Traveling Pop-Up Dinner Series Benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Ten Private Clubs in 10 U.S. Markets to Be Transformed -- for One Night Only -- Into a Legendary Le Cirque Restaurant Experience

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - May 09, 2016) - ClubCorp -- The World Leader in Private Clubs® (NYSE: MYCC) -- and legendary Manhattan restaurant Le Cirque announced they are once again teaming to create "An Evening with Le Cirque," a traveling pop-up dinner series bringing to life the Le Cirque experience in 10 of ClubCorp's family of private clubs around the nation. The dinners, being held May 13 through Sept. 30, 2016, and benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®, will be held in Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, Dallas, Houston, Seattle, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta and San Jose.

During the events, members and the public alike will get the opportunity meet Le Cirque's new chef, Massimo Bebber, dine and visit with members of the Maccioni family, which opened the original Le Cirque in New York and now operates 25 restaurants throughout the world, and enjoy Le Cirque's authentic and timeless French cuisine. ClubCorp and Le Cirque also teamed in 2012 to first present "An Evening with Le Cirque" -- events that were sold out in nearly every market.

Le Cirque, ranked among the best restaurants in the world and a favorite gathering place of celebrities, political figures, and high society for more than 40 years, will be showcased in the dining rooms of the private clubs in the ClubCorp family for one night only. "An Evening with Le Cirque" will feature a four-course menu with classic Le Cirque dishes and new items created by Chef Massimo.

Diners in each city will have the chance to experience the iconic wines of Feudi del Pisciotto Italian Fashion Designers Collection by Domini Castellare de Castellina. Inspired to preserve the rich history that surrounds the winery in Sicily, Feudi del Pisciotto collaborated with some of Italy's finest fashion designers, including Versace, Valentino, Missoni, Carolina Marengo, Alberta Ferretti, Gianfranco Ferré and Giambattista Valli, to create the packaging for Pisciotto's designer wine line.

To further enhance the Le Cirque experience, design elements will feature Le Cirque's iconic table top, logoed menus and even the Le Cirque sugar sachets. As part of the club's transformation, photos of Le Cirque's founder, Siro Maccioni and his sons Marco and Mauro, with celebrities will be enlarged and displayed throughout the dining room's main entrance.
