The 9th annual Patrick Warburton Celebrity Golf Tournament will return to the Desert once again from February 28-March 3, 2019, bringing in more than 75 stars, songwriters and rock legends for a weekend of golf and one-of-a-kind music events.

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.

Tournament host, actor Patrick Warburton, perhaps best known for playing Puddy on Seinfeld as well as the star of the syndicated sitcom Rules of Engagement, the voice of Joe on Family Guy and numerous movie roles in movies like Ted and Ted 2The Tick, Disney’s The Emperor’s New Groove and Planes: Fire & Rescue, and DreamWorks’ Mr. Peabody & Sherman, brings together many of his celebrity friends to highlight a star-studded weekend in the desert raising much-needed funds for kids battling pediatric cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Warburton can now be seen on Netflix’s top-rated Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events – where he plays narrator Snicket and co-stars with Neil Patrick Harris.

Celebrities will begin arriving on Thursday, February 28, for Songwriters Night – which will be held at the Pavilion at JW Marriott Desert Springs. This will be an evening with a group of renowned Nashville songwriters telling the stories behind their biggest hits, along with performing those hits. The event will be hosted by HLN morning news anchor, Robin Meade. Tickets are $150 and include a barbecue dinner and drinks.

Friday night’s Rheneypalooza Jam – named for event co-founder and Board Chairman, Clarke Rheney – has generated a lot of buzz as “the best event in the desert” and sold out the past few years because of its unique line-up of Rock-and-Roll Hall of Famers and other famous rock legends who perform some of their hits in what becomes essentially a 4+ hour rock-and-roll variety show. It’s held in the ballrooms at the JW Marriott Desert Springs

The Warburton is the top highest grossing golf tournament for St. Jude nationwide, and surpassed its goal yet again last year – raising more than $8 million for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in its 8 years of existence.
