Also contributing to the event will be nationally renowned and multi-talented sports personality Ann Liguori as the Live Auctioneer. Ann is the Golf Correspondent for WFAN-NY and CBS Sports Radio Network and will be covering her 21st consecutive Masters in April.

She has interviewed hundreds of top sport’s legends for her award-winning tv and radio show, ‘Sports Innerview.’


Major General Jim Myles (Ret) serves as the Senior Military Advisor to Caddy For A Cure and will be sharing his history with the charity. “For the past 7 years I have had the great pleasure of observing the long-lasting impact that Caddy For A Cure has had on our wounded veterans and their families. Russ and Colleen Holden have made it happen through hard work, strong leadership and creating special memories for others. My experience “on the bag” with Rickie Fowler opened my eyes to something that is truly one of the great memories in all of golf. The net result of the CFAC efforts is a brighter future for many of our wounded warriors and their families.”
