Darius Rucker & Friends Help Raise $425,000 for St. Jude With 2019 Concert & Golf Tourney

Darius Rucker is a man on a mission.

With his 10th annual Darius & Friends Benefit Concert on June 3 at the Ryman Auditorium and golf tourney on June 4, Darius surpassed $2 million raised for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

This year’s concert, auction and golf tourney raised more than $425,000 for St. Jude, breaking the record of $404,000 set by last year’s shindig.

“I was struck on that first visit by how St. Jude not only cares for their patients, but also their patients’ families,” says Darius, referencing his first trip to St. Jude 10 years ago. “They believe that a financial burden is the last thing a family should face when their focus needs to be on helping a kid get better, and St. Jude makes sure that their patients never pay a dime. It’s an honor for us to be able to help them continue such an important mission.”

Jimmie Allen, Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Sheryl Crow, Travis Denning, Brett Young and Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley performed with Darius for the more than 2,400 fans in attendance at the Ryman.

Starting in June, Thomas will kick-off his Bring The Bar To You tour with back to back shows in Gilford, New Hampshire with openers Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
