his sold-out, fourth annual “Darius And Friends” benefit concert on

“I
always look forward to this event each year, and I’m so happy to have
Luke, Sam, John, Randy, Dustin, Justin, and of course my hero, Radney,
join me to help raise funds for St. Jude,” said Rucker. “A few years ago
I visited the St. Jude campus in Memphis and instantly became a ‘true
believer’ in everyone there and the work they do to help treat kids and
cure disease. I am happy to help raise funds for such a worthwhile cause
and thrilled that some of my friends can join me.”
 
“Darius
And Friends” has unofficially become a kickoff event for CMA Music
Festival Week since it began four years ago. Through the years, artists

Since its inception, “Darius And Friends” has grown to include a charity
auction and a celebrity golf tournament and has raised more than
$225,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
 
This
year’s event is sponsored by Transitions® lenses and Visionworks®,
including the “Darius And Friends” golf tournament to be held in
Nashville on June 4.  Celebrity golfers include Nashville Predator J.P.
Dumont, country artists Jay DeMarcus (Rascal Flatts), Colt Ford, JT

About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Since
opening more than 50 years ago, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other
life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care
their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more
have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has
played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates
from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer
Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to
children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood
disorders and infectious diseases in children. St. Jude was founded by
the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die
in the dawn of life. Join that mission by visiting stjude.org or following us on facebook.com/stjude and twitter.com/stjude.
