Platinum-selling country music artist Darius Rucker has announced plans to bring back his “Darius Rucker and Friends” for a third year this year. The benefit concert and tournament will once again be sponsored by GAC and will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Nashville, Tennessee. The celebrity golf tournament will take place on Monday, June 4th, 2012 and will raise funds to help get the best care possible for children with cancer and their families with no cost to the families.
Darius’ concerts alone have raised over $100,000 for St. Jude with support of his friends like Rodney Atkins, Easton Corbin, Radney Foster, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Justin Moore, Jerrod Niemann, Jake Owen, and Kid Rock.
“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. Ever since I made my first visit to the hospital,” Rucker continues, “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.”
