This year’s 15th annual Nichols Cup Celebrity Pro-Am events held at Fiddlesticks Country Club were greatly successful once again. Last month, CAC accepted a check from the Bobby Nichols-Fiddlesticks Charity Foundation in the amount of $325,000. Funding from this event is vital to the continuation of CAC’s services. “The residents of Fiddlesticks play a critical role in bettering the lives of children who have been abused and neglected. We continue to be amazed and humbled by their generosity,” commented Jill Turner, CAC’s CEO.
