The Empire State building will be lit up in honor of Arnold Palmer’s birthday

Today would have been Arnold Palmer’s 90th birthday and in honor of The King, the Empire State building will be lit up in Arnie colors.

“My dad always said it was the greatest privilege to give back when possible, and the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation is a testament to that,” said Amy Palmer Saunders, Palmer’s daughter and Chair of the Arnold Palmer companies and the Foundation. “That the Empire State Building is honoring his efforts with a lighting on what would have been his 90th birthday is a tremendous honor, and one that he would have enjoyed.”

“We are honored that the Empire State Building, one of the world’s greatest buildings, is honoring the efforts of one of our country’s greatest sons,” said Jon Podany, CEO of Arnold Palmer Enterprises and AWPF President. “Arnold Palmer brought a lot of light into this world, light that continues to shine brightly through the Arnold & Winnie Palmer Foundation and the Palmer companies.”

Twitter has also been great today in remembering Palmer, who died at the age of 87 in 2016.
