Darius Rucker & Friends Raise More Than $400,000 for St. Jude Through 2018 Concert & Golf Tourney

Darius Rucker gets by with a little help from his friends.

With his ninth annual Darius & Friends Benefit Concert on June 4 at the Ryman Auditorium and golf tourney on June 5, Darius surpassed $1.6 million raised for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

This year’s concert, auction and golf tourney raised $404,000 for St. Jude, breaking all previous yearly records.

“As a parent, I can’t imagine the emotional toll hearing your child has cancer takes, not to mention the financial stress,” said Darius. “The support families with a child facing life-threating illness receive from St. Jude is just incredible. I’m proud to support St. Jude and I’m so grateful to all our friends who came out and donated their time to be on the show.”

Patrick Davis, Edwin McCain, A.J. McClean of the Backstreet Boys, Brad Paisley, Trace Adkins, Lauren Alaina, Bobby Bones, Ashley McBryde and Rachel Wammack performed with Darius for the more than 2,400 fans in attendance at the Ryman.
