Golf & Guitars Ticket Giveaway

Juli Thanki | May 9th, 2013

Engine 145 is proud to partner once more with Golf & Guitars, an annual golf tournament/concert event at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex in Sacramento, California that raises money for worthy charitable organizations. This year’s proceeds will go to Jenna & Patrick’s Foundation of Hope, a nonprofit dedicated to fighting Cystinosis, a rare metabolic disease that mostly affects children, and the Morton Golf Foundation, which brings the game of golf to disabled, youth, and under-served communities in Northern California.

Golf & Guitars VI is shaping up to be the biggest G&G yet; it’s expanded to a two-day event, and artists like Joe Nichols, Joey + Rory, Jack Ingram, Jerrod Niemann, and Maggie Rose are scheduled to perform. Nearly all of the tickets to this year’s shindig are sold out, but we’ve saved a pair of two-day general admission wrist bands to award one lucky E145 reader. Travel isn’t included, so please only enter this giveaway if you can make the trip out to Haggin Oaks for the May 20-21 event.

To enter, leave a comment on this post mentioning your favorite song recorded by one of this year’s Golf & Guitars artists (check out the full lineup and schedule here). The deadline is 12 p.m. Eastern on Monday, May 13, 2013. A winner will be notified by email, so make sure you use a valid address.

    My favorite is Jerrod Niemann – What do want. Verse- To come here and make love tonight because your feeling lonely. I had the opportunity to go last year and meet some of the artists Jerrod being one of them and he and the event was more than amazing. Life changing actually. The people, the charity. So awesome. I would be soooooooooo crazy excited to win these tickets. I tried so hard to win them for my birthday, it would be such a great celebration. Thank you guys so much for this opportunity. Wish me luck!!!!

    Raymond-Brett Eldredge.
    This story and song hits so close to home. My Grandmother had dementia and was in a nursing home. My Uncle who passed away was named Raymond. There are so many similarities in the song to real life. Missing both of them dearly <3
