In the Clubhouse, select the Prize Money option and you will be greeted by Donkey Kong, wearing a shirt, tie and hat. He will tell you how much prize money has been earned to date in the game.

While it is undoubtedly a coincidence, it might be worth mentioning that this is the first time Donkey Kong is seen wearing a necktie.
