Hole-in-one caps off successful fundraiser


Janice Miller, the COO of the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation, left; George Cusimano, the vice chairman of the foundation; and Michael Piccininni chat after his hole-in-one won a $10,000 prize.



Michael Piccininni of Viera will always remember his participation in the annual Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation golf tournament, also known as the Louise Jones Golf Classic, on April 7 at Indian River Colony Club.

Piccininni made a hole-in-one on the 181-yard sixth hole to claim a $10,000 prize for the incredible shot. The prize for the hole-in-one payoff hole was sponsored by Murphy Cadillac, Inc. of Melbourne.

“Thanks to the Brevard Alzheimer’s Foundation for an experience that will last a lifetime,” Piccininni said. “It will be a day I will never forget. I will never forget IRCC.”

The $11,000 in proceeds from the Louise Jones Golf Classic will benefit Brevard County residents battling Alzheimer’s and dementia-related diseases. The event has been held for 22 years.
