Darius Rucker is in the giving spirit these days. He's set to host the ACM Lifting Lives Celebrity Golf Classic this Saturday in Las Vegas, and proceeds from that event go to the Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund to help those in need in the music industry. Taking part in these events is a no-brainer for Darius, who is very passionate about golf.
He says, "It's awesome that I can help people and hang out with my buddies and hit a little white ball."
Darius adds with a laugh, "You know, 'cause that's the only time I can hit something white as hard as I can and not go to jail."
Darius is also bringing back his annual Darius and Friends benefit concert Monday, June 3 at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. That event raises money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and tickets go on sale Friday at WildhorseSaloon.com and DariusRucker.com .
The Darius and Friends event has raised more than $125,000 in its history for St. Jude.
