Darius Rucker Sets Date For Annual St. Jude Fundraiser

Darius Rucker will host his third annual “Darius And Friends” benefit for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, on Monday, June 4 beginning a week of events in Nashville for CMA Music Fest.

The two-part fundraiser presented by GAC begins early with the St. Jude Darius and Friends celebrity golf tournament, which takes place at the Gaylord Springs Golf Links. The concert is scheduled for later that same evening at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon. Performers have not yet been announced, but previous guests have included Jake Owen, Easton Corbin, Radney Foster, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Justin Moore, and Jake Owen.

100 percent of ticket sales will be donated to further St. Jude’s mission of providing the best care possible for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases at no cost to their family. The concerts alone have helped raise more than $100,000 for the organization.

“Ever since I made my first visit to the hospital, I was so moved,” said Rucker. “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.”

DariusRucker.com members will have early access to tickets through April 21, when sales open to the general public. Tickets may be purchased at the Wildhorse Saloon and through Ticketmaster.
