Taylor Hicks, American Idol Winner, Other Celebs Turn Out For Autism benefit

More about Taylor's participation in yesterday's Celebrity Golf Tourny in New York. This is from the New's York's Lower Hudson Valley newspaper.

MAMARONECK - On a day when Tiger Woods and Rocco Mediate battled for the U.S. Open title in California, singer Taylor Hicks was one of dozens of celebrities at Winged Foot Golf Club yesterday to raise an estimated $1 million for the Autism Speaks charity.

Hicks, who won the fifth season of "American Idol" and is guest-starring in "Grease" on Broadway, said the cause is important to him.

"One of my dad's best friend's sons has autism," he said, moments before practicing his swing at the driving range. "When I heard about this particular event, I wanted to make sure I got out and tried to get involved with it and bring some attention to the disease."

Thanks for continuing to keep us up on all the Taylor Hicks stuff. It would be cool if they expanded his role like they did for Fonzie on Happy Days :) ...or maybe he could be "teen angle" for a new show with modern teenagers. I do wish they would come up with more musicals that are uplifting and fun. Thanks again.
