John Rich To Organize 'FedEx St. Jude Classic' Concert
May 16, 2013 at 7:09 AM (PT)
JOHN RICH of the WARNER MUSIC NASHVILLE duo BIG & RICH has gathered some of his celebrity friends to kick off the annual "FEDEX ST. JUDE CLASSIC" golf tournament in a pre-event performance called "ST. JUDE PRESENTS JOHN RICH & FRIENDS." The show will feature performances from BIG & RICH, WYNONNA, LARRY THE CABLE GUY and include an appearance from RICH’s "CELEBRITY APPRENTICE" co-star LISA RINNA.
"One of the greatest honors of my life's work is to help the kids at ST. JUDE. To bring music to their lives, and use music to raise funds for their care is something bigger than a hit song or a sold out concert," said JOHN RICH. "This will be a great celebration "For The Kids"!" WYNONNA added, "From the first time I visited ST. JUDE years ago, I knew that it was a place I belonged. As a mother, I look into the eyes of every child and I realize that they could easily be one of my children. As an artist, I ask myself, "What can I do to bring a blessing to these wounded and hurting families?"
"We are thankful to JOHN RICH for his continued support of our lifesaving work and to have such a talented group of supporters joining him for this special event. This event is just one of many ST. JUDE moments that will take place during a week of great golf, all of which help ST. JUDE continue its mission of finding cures and saving children," said ALSAC/ ST. JUDE CHILDREN’s RESEARCH HOSPITAL CEO, RICHARD SHADYAC JR.
In addition to the show, the pre-event festivities will include the DANNY THOMAS PRO-AM, WINDOW WORLD PRO-AM, MICHELOB ULTRA PARTY TENT, a KIDS ZONE and a SATURDAY NIGHT concert after-party.
Tickets range from $40 - $80 and are available at Ticketmaster.com.
