Welcome to the official Website of the Nicholas R. Chiera Golf and Tennis Classic.
For seventeen years now, our charity event has raised over 2.3 million dollars to help send thousands of children battling cancer to a very special summer camp. In addition, our fundraising efforts have also sent six young adults to college and hundreds of families to a weekend in Disney World. What started as a tribute to our father, who passed away from cancer seventeen years ago, has now turned into one of the largest fundraisers for American Cancer Society's R.O.C.K. Programs. R.O.C.K stands for reaching out for cancer kids and affords children from the state of Florida a one week, all expenses paid summer camp experience, a family weekend at Disney World or even College Scholarships. To find out more about the camp and other R.O.C.K. family programs, please feel free to navigate our site.
Each year our dinner, auction and golf classic will take place in April or May. Our website will allow you to keep abreast of our fundraising activities, check on upcoming events, as well as see first hand how our charity continues to help so many deserving children and families.
We would also like to thank all of or board members and our corporate sponsors. Without their support and generous donations, none of this would be possible. We ask all of you to recognize all of our sponsors by supporting their businesses when possible. A complete listing of all of our sponsors is attached for your review. Special thanks to Accrisoft Corporation for their assistance in developing and hosting this site.
On behalf of the Chiera family and the thousands of children fighting cancer who have attended ROCK camp, thank you for your support. May God continue to bless you and watch over all of these kids and young adults battling cancer.
With our sincere thanks and warmest regards,
Lou Chiera, Vin Chiera, Nicholas Chiera Jr., and Rose Ann Frey
