Country superstars like Jack Ingram, Kix Brooks, David Nail, Bryan White, Jerrod Niemann and Jimmy Wayne may be busy with national tours and more, but they're never too busy to help those in need. These country stars can always be counted on to bend their schedule to lend a hand. As such, The 5th Annual Golf & Guitars Celebrity-Am Tournament and Children's Charity Concert- hosted by Jack Ingram- is set for Tuesday, May 22nd at the legendary Alister MacKenzie Golf Course at Haggin Oaks in Sacramento- held in conjunction with KNCI 105.1 FM Hot Country. This year's event includes a celebrity golf tournament, silent auction and concert. Jack Ingram will be this year's event host.

The event kicks off that morning as tournament participants enjoy a tournament round with a major label country music act. The evening will continue with the chance to bid on an astounding array of celebrity items and one-of-a-kind event packages. Topping the evening is a performance by all of our artists - nearly 4 hours of music. Tickets to the concert are only $30. Click HERE to buy tickets. VIP stageside tickets to the concert and the Monday night New Artist Showcase and Pairings Party are $150. This VIP ticket includes dinner both nights of the event. 

What is Golf & Guitars?
Golf and Guitars is a celebrity pro-am golf tournament and concert featuring nationally recognized & major label country music artists that raises money for two key children's charities here in Sacramento. Each golfer in the tournament gets to play with one of the celebrities and then gets a seat next to the stage where these artists put on a tremendous concert underneath the beautiful golf course sky. Each artist will be play 18 holes with a foursome in this scramble event. It’s one of the rare opportunities to spend several great hours with a great musician in a relaxed atmosphere.

Who gets the money?
100% of the net funds are donated between two children's-oriented non-profit charities. The mission of the Morton Golf Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charity, is to provide funding to 13 different local charities and programs that provide exercise in a healthy outdoor environment, to create a recreational environment that builds lasting personal development and that seamlessly introduces life’s core values of the great game of golf to the youth, disabled and underserved communities in the Sacramento region. Half of the funds will go to JDRF, the Juvenille Diabetes Research Foundation, a group hoping to wipe out and create awareness for Type 1 Diabetes. JDRF is at the center of the global T1D community-leading the effort to coordinate and galvanize the many key constituents-families, businesses, government, researchers, and other organizations-in the quest to cure T1D. Over $150,000 has been raised in previous years events.
