Recipients share President Wilson’s vision of improving our policies and institutions through enlightened and deliberate dialogue and stand as living testaments to what may be accomplished when the worlds of learning, public affairs and business come together in common interest.
Nicklaus closed his speech by acknowledging Barbara, his wife of 47 years, and his five children, most of whom attended the event. He credited Barbara for being the guiding light for the family’s influence on lives at the local level through her myriad charitable efforts, the most notable being the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation, which supports numerous pediatric health-care services in a five-county area, including Palm Beach.
