RCA NASHVILLE artist and VERO BEACH, FL native JAKE OWEN has headlined four years of consecutive sell-outs for his hometown JAKE OWEN concert, always a highlight of the annual benefit, MARDY’S TENNIS & JAKE’S MUSIC FEST. This year’s concert, slated for DECEMBER 10th, is moving to the 6,500-seat HOLMAN STADIUM, and CAPITOL RECORDS NASHVILLE group LITTLE BIG TOWN will be JAKE’s special guest.
The event also takes on a new dimension with the creation of the JAKE OWEN FOUNDATION, which joins longtime event beneficiary the MARDY FISH FOUNDATION as a new vehicle for charitable support geared toward children. The MARDY FISH FOUNDATION, established by tennis pro MARDY FISH as a way to support youth organizations and programs in the VERO BEACH area, will be a key beneficiary of the JAKE OWEN FOUNDATION, together with ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL.
Prior to the evening concert, the event weekend kicks-off on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10th, with a Kids’ Tennis Clinic at GRAND HARBOR GOLF & BEACH CLUB, the official host sponsor of the event. The event continues on SATURDAY, DECEMBER 11th, with a luncheon that includes a live and silent auction and a Tennis Exhibition featuring host MARDY FISH, who will be joined by current and/or former touring tennis professionals in a singles and doubles match.
Tennis Exhibition tickets are $75 for box seats and $35 for general admission tickets. Tickets for the JAKE OWEN concert with special guests are $75 for premier seats (on field) and $15 for general admission (stadium bleacher seating). There will be limited VIP pit seats available; price and availability to be announced soon. To purchase tickets, call (866) 333-7623 or visit www.chevents.com.
