Engine 145 Partners with Golf & Guitars
Engine 145 is proud to be the official online music blog partner of Golf and Guitars VI, a fantastic two-day concert series, golf tournament, and silent auction that will be held May 20-21 at the Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, California.
Golf & Guitars raises funds for two worthy causes: Jenna & Patrick’s Foundation of Hope is a voluntary, nonprofit organization made up of parents, medical professionals, friends, relatives and others who are interested in fighting Cystinosis, a rare metabolic disease that mostly affects children. Their vision is a world where Cystinosis is no longer a threat to a full and productive life for children and their families. The Morton Golf Foundation’s mission is to provide funds to programs offering a healthy outdoor recreational environment that stresses the building of lasting personal relationships while seamlessly instilling life’s core values for the youth, disabled and under-served communities of Sacramento. Programs funded through the Morton Golf Foundation include the first and largest Special Olympics golf program in the country, the Savings Strokes stroke-victims rehabilitation program, Folds of Honor, The First Tee, Boys and Girls Club, and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
The artists scheduled to perform (and golf) at this year’s Golf and Guitars are: Joe Nichols, Jack Ingram, Joey + Rory, Jerrod Niemann, Thomas Rhett, Chris Cagle, Montgomery Gentry, Maggie Rose, Kristen Kelly, Joanna Smith, Greg Bates, Dustin Lynch, Chuck Wicks, Brett Eldredge, Love and Theft, Canaan Smith, Heidi Feek, and Summerlin Road.
You can find more information and check out the Golf and Guitars schedule here, and buy your tickets for the concert and golf tournament (which includes a minimum of nine holes with one of the performing artists, plus some cool swag as well as dinner and concert tickets for you and a guest) here, or at the Haggin Oaks Golf Super Store if you’re a local.
Leading up to the event, Engine 145 will have a few ticket giveaways for some lucky readers, and we’ll also be filming some exclusive content for the site. So if you’re in the Sacramento area, come out and support some worthy causes — and come say “hi” to us while you’re at it.
