5th Annual CAP Golf Tournament Raises $116,500 for Arts Education in Northeast Florida

On Monday, October 4, the Cathedral Arts Project held the 5th Annual CAP Golf Tournament, presented by Fickling Construction, at Deerwood Country Club. The event, chaired by CAP board member Alan Fickling, exceeded its goal and raised $116,500 in support of arts education for children in Northeast Florida. It is the only golf tournament to support arts education along the First Coast.

It was a beautiful day as 32 teams took to the course to raise funds that provide essential visual and performing arts programs to children in our community. Sherwin-Williams took home the grand prize with the best net score of the day, followed by Miller Electric in second place and The Ferber Company in third.

Golfers, staff and volunteers enjoyed an outdoor awards ceremony, with Tournament Chair Alan Fickling, CAP Vice President of Development Janette Allen, and CAP Theatre Teaching Artist Fellow Katie Swider speaking about the impact of the arts on the children enrolled in CAP’s programs.

“I am so grateful for the continued support of our sponsors on behalf of arts education for children in our community,” said Tournament Chair Alan Fickling. “Because of their generosity and the hard work of our committee, volunteers and staff, CAP is able to continue to empower every child’s creative spirit and advocate for access and equity in arts education.”
