Darius Rucker’s Third-Annual Celebrity Golf Tournament Scheduled for June 4
On June 4, Darius Rucker will host the third-annual Darius and Friends celebrity golf tournament to benefit programs at St. Jude Children's Hospital. The multi-platinum selling artist's concerts alone have helped raise more than $100,000 for St. Jude with the support of friends like Rodney Atkins, Justin Moore, Jerrod Niemann, Jake Owen, Kid Rock and more.
“This has become my favorite way to start off the week of CMA Fest -- golf and music for a great cause. With the support of our friends at GAC, Gaylord Springs and the Wildhorse Saloon, we’ll be able to raise even more for St. Jude,” Rucker said in a statement. "Ever since I made my first visit to the hospital, I was so moved, I knew I needed to be part of it and support it in any way possible. These events allow me to honor the outstanding work of the researchers, doctors and staff at St. Jude and I'm honored to be able to help contribute to their efforts."
Although Rucker hasn't yet announced the event's lineup, it's sure to be a great show. Tickets are on sale now through the Wild Horse Saloon, Rucker's official website and Ticketmaster. More details about the performances will be released in the coming weeks.
The best part about attending the event is that 100 percent of the ticket sales helps St. Jude in its mission to find cures and save children battling cancer and other deadly diseases -- and that's a cause that anyone can get behind.
