This will be Civitan’s 40th annual event which brings tourists and musicians from all across the country vying for the opportunity to show off their talent and compete for up to $7,625 in cash prizes. The winners in these events use the experience of professional growth and development to enhance their resumes and professional portfolios.

For the past 40 years, the Fiddlers’ event has been made possible by the generous support of local business leaders and individuals. The success of the Fiddlers’ Championship last year resulted in the club donating $9,300 in proceeds to 20 local charitable organizations.

With the support of community-minded members and volunteers, the Hilldale Civitan was able to make this event a huge success.

Please remember, the Hilldale Civitan Club is a non-profit, family-orientated organization established for the betterment of our community.
