Charles Evans

Charles EvansThe Charles Evans PCF Pro-Am Tour is a fitting memorial to the life of Charles Evans. He was committed to helping others, turning his personal tragedies into philanthropic causes. Charles Evans, an avid tennis player, would be proud of what is being done to fight prostate cancer through these events.

When his father developed Alzheimer's disease in the late 1960s, Mr. Evans made large donations to Alzheimer's research and eventually became national director of the Alzheimer's Association.

In 1975, his former wife, Frances, and their two daughters, Elizabeth and Melissa, died in a fire caused by errant ashes from their fireplace. Mr. Evans created the Crusade for Fire Detection, aimed at educating the public on the need for fire detectors and lobbying for laws to make them mandatory. Charles sent out hundreds of fire detectors as gifts and chain letters. Countless lives have been saved through the mandatory laws of fire alarms.

Charles had a true zeal for life. From WWII veteran to successful entrepreneur, feature film producer, to a dedicated philanthropist. Charles was a dynamic, charismatic, old school Gentleman. He was one of a kind and adored by all worldwide.
