Darius Rucker to Return to 2014 McGladrey Classic Concert “Under the Oaks”
McGladrey LLP, the nation's leading provider of assurance tax and consulting services and title sponsor of The McGladrey Classic, an official PGA TOUR event, is pleased that platinum-selling and 2014 Grammy Country Single of the Year winner Darius Rucker will perform in the Golden Isles this October as part of The McGladrey Classic, hosted by Davis Love III. Rucker will entertain fans with a concert the evening of Wed., Oct. 22 "Live Under the Oaks" at Sea Island Golf Club.
Rucker, a South Carolina native, is a music industry veteran and an avid golf fan. He first attained multi-platinum status as lead singer for Hootie and the Blowfish. Now, in addition to maintaining his lead singer role, Rucker is a country solo superstar.
This will be Ruckier's second performance sponsored by Southeast Georgia Health System in conjunction with The McGladrey Classic. He performed the very first concert in connection with the tournament in 2011.
"Darius is a great performer and has been a major supporter of the PGA TOUR and its charities," said Tournament Director Scott Reid. "It's an incredible opportunity to bring him back to the Golden Isles for this special concert which will not only entertain fans but most importantly help us raise money for Special Olympics, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Southeast Georgia and other charities that benefit children and their families."
"The McGladrey Classic is a highlight each year for select McGladrey clients, and thousands of avid golf fans," said Andy Bosman, national marketing and sales leader for McGladrey. "We know that many of our middle market clients enjoy the game of golf, and the tournament provides not only an excellent opportunity for us to connect with them, but an opportunity to give back to numerous deserving national and local charitable organizations. Of the $850,000 raised for children- and family-focused charitable organizations through the 2013 tournament, McGladrey employees and clients contributed more than $430,000 through the tournament's Birdies Fore Love program. We're looking forward to giving back to the community again this year, and to having Darius Rucker provide the entertainment Wednesday evening."
Tickets to The McGladrey Classic, including the Wednesday concert, will be on sale beginning May 12, just in time for Father's Day For more information on tickets and tournament week activities, visit www.mcgladreyclassic.com.
