Multi-platinum, award-winning, country recording artist, Tracy Lawrence was proud to host the 1st Annual Golf For A Cure Charity Golf Classic on Monday, May 2, 2011, benefitting Susan G. Komen Greater Nashville. The event was held at Five Oaks Golf & Country Club in Lebanon, Tennessee (621 Five Oaks Blvd.), Lawrence was joined by celebs from the performing stage and the ball field. As part of his personal initiative to give back, Lawrence, along with his friends in sports and entertainment--Darryl Worley, Brad Arnold (3 Doors Down), Ira Dean (former Trick Pony member), Keith Anderson, Bryan White, Matt Gary, Ty Brown (of “The Bachelorette” fame), Cory Hildreath (One Night Rodeo), Davis Daniel, Elbert West, Lacey Brown and more - raised money for Komen Greater Nashville spending the day on the greens as comrades in mission and play.
After a challenging 18-hole game, the Golf For A Cure outing was followed by a celebratory reception. The awards presentation took place during the reception, along with silent and live auctions and an up-close acoustic concert featuring Lawrence and friends. The price of admittance included FREE beer, vodka and rum beverages (provided by Pinnacle Liquors). Big tag silent auction items include an authentic, autographed Nolan Ryan Rangers' jersey and photograph and a Fender Squire electric guitar autographed by the members of 3 Doors Down. One hundred percent of the proceeds went directly to Susan G. Komen Greater Nashville.
Over the course of the past 15 years, Lawrence has hosted his golf classic in Texarkana, Texas benefiting the Tracy Lawrence Foundation. Influencing, enhancing and improving hundreds of thousands of residents’ lives in and around Lawrence’s hometown of Foreman, Arkansas, the Foundation has donated more than 1 million dollars to 35-plus communities and civic groups in and around the area. Lawrence hopes Golf For a Cure will garner the same success and proceeds for the efforts of Susan G. Komen For The Cure Foundation.
