After nine years of supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and their mission, Darius Rucker and his friends have passed the $1 million fundraising mark for the cause. The milestone mark was reached after Rucker held his eighth annual “Darius and Friends” benefit concert on Monday night (6/5) in Nashville, which, along with this year’s auction and golf tournament, raised $402,000 for St. Jude.
- The benefit show was held at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium and featured performances from Dan + Shay, Luke Combs, Michael Ray, John Oates of Hall & Oates, KISS guitarist Tommy Thay, as well as a surprise appearance from Brooks & Dunn.
- Darius says, “I’m so grateful to all our friends who came out and donated their time to be on the show– and Brooks & Dunn for surprising me onstage! Just wow!”
- The $402,000 raised breaks last year’s record and brings the cumulative total raised for all years to $1.2 million.
