The fund’s resources cover a wide range of financial, medical and personal emergencies, and each case is treated with integrity and confidentiality. The fund was established to honor Diane Holcomb’s memory by her only daughter, Gayle Holcomb, who served four years as Chairman of the Board of the Academy of Country Music. ACM Lifting Lives has helped 45 people and given over $230,000 since its inception in 2007.
The golf tournament will be held on Saturday, April 18th at the Brookhaven Country Club in Dallas, Texas. For more information, please visit www.ACMLiftingLives.org
