Country superstars like Jack Ingram, Clay Walker, Chuck Wicks and Jimmy Wayne may be busy with national tours and more, but they’re never too busy to help those in need. These country stars can always be counted on to bend their schedule to lend a hand. As such, The Golf & Guitars Celebrity-Am Tournament and Charity Concert- hosted by Jack Ingram- is set for Tuesday, May 17th at the legendary Alister MacKenzie Golf Course at Haggin Oaks in Sacramento- held in conjunction with KNCI 105.1 FM Hot Country. This year’s event includes a celebrity golf tournament, silent auction and concert. The event kicks off that morning as tournament participants enjoy a tournament round with a major label country music act or sports celebrity. The evening will continue with the chance to bid on an astounding array of celebrity items and one-of-a-kind event packages. Topping the evening is a performance by all of our artists – nearly 4 hours of music. Tickets to the concert are only $30.
What is Golf & Guitars?
Golf and Guitars is a celebrity pro-am golf tournament and concert featuring nationally recognized & major label country music artists that raises money for two key children’s charities in Sacramento. Each golfer in the tournament gets to play with one of the celebrities and then gets a seat next to the stage where these artists put on a tremendous concert underneath the beautiful golf course sky. Each artist will be play 18 holes with a foursome in this scramble event. It’s one of the rare opportunities to spend several great hours with a great musician in a relaxed atmosphere. It is free for fans to come watch the artists play on the links during the day.
Who gets the money?
100% of the net funds are donated between two non-profit charities. The mission of the Morton Golf Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity, is to provide golf programs that provide exercise in a healthy outdoor environment, to create a recreational environment that builds lasting personal development and that seamlessly introduces life’s core values of the great game of golf to the youth, disabled and underserved communities in the Sacramento region. The Keaton Raphael Memorial, is also a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that supports children with cancer and their families by providing emotional, educational and financial support, while increasing awareness and funding research toward a cure.
