Rick “Nifty” Middleton
At our 2015 Face Off for Ace we were proud to present the Ace Bailey Good Guy Award to Rick “Nifty” Middleton, a good and loyal friend of the Ace Bailey Children’s Foundation and a Boston Bruins fan-favorite.

Merilyn came onboard with us to coordinate the auction part of the evening and to bring her staff on the day of the event to set everything up and greet all the guests and check out the auction. She’s a godsend. ...READ MORE
