The Powder Puff Charity Golf Classic committee presented Tidewell a check for $9,660 on Monday. Each year the group donates tournament proceeds to support programs and services for Tidewell’s patients and their loved ones. This year’s tournament was held February 16-18 at Port Charlotte Golf Club. The Powder Puff Charity Golf Classic began in 1976 and has grown to become the premier amateur ladies’ tournament in Southwest Florida.
