9th Annual Patrick Warburton Golf Tournament Raises $2.2 Million For St.Jude
The 9th Annual Patrick Warburton Celebrity Golf Tournament raised $2,200,000 for St.Jude Children’s Research Hospital® this past weekend.
The event has grown to become “St. Jude Week in the Desert,” all to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® – which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
As the highest grossing golf tournament for St. Jude nationwide, this year’s event pushes the grand total raised to $12 million since its inception in 2011.
More than 75 celebrities and hundreds of attendees traveled in from around the country to attend 4 sold-out events that make up the Warburton – which include Songwriters Night (February 28), the Rheneypalooza Jam (March 1), the Soiree (March 2) and the golf tournament (March 2 and 3). Rock and country legends, Nashville songwriters, actors, and sports figures gathered to be part of these music events as well as golf held at both the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa and Classic Club.
