Our 4th Annual Golf & Guitars has come to a close and this year proved to be our most challenging ever when an unexpected winter storm blew into town. There was some last minute scrambling to move the event indoors and our golfers didn’t let a little rain keep them from playing golf or from enjoying the Pairings Party held on Monday, May 16th. Overall, the event was a huge success and most importantly, it raised thousands of dollars for charity!
New for 2011 was the VIP Pairings Party held in the Pavilion at Haggin Oaks for our tournament players and VIP ticket holders. The clouds unleashed their fury, but the artists and guests stayed dry. Blanca, the head chef at MacKenzie’s Sports Bar & Grille, served up an amazing buffet dinner, and I know I went back for seconds at the dessert tray! As the night continued, performances by Bryan White, Ira Dean, Larry Stewart, The Dirt Drifters and Love and Theft entertained the crowd. John Berry, Jimmy Wayne and Julie Roberts hung out with the crowd. The Dirt Drifters and Love and Theft also took time to sign autographs and take pictures with the VIP guests. At the end of the night, Jimmy Wayne hopped up on stage and performed a few songs to close out the show.
