Thursday, May 15, 2014
– Casey James today announced the Second Annual Casey James Frisbee Golf Tournament to benefit the Monroe Carell Jr Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt will be held on June 4.
James will again participate in a fan-filled field day full of outdoor games, events and fan meet and greets. He will also give his fans an exclusive first listen and acoustic performance of his brand new music while playing for the hospital's children and families.
"I feel blessed to have the opportunity to work alongside the Childrens Hospital and help raise money for such an amazing cause," said James. "We always have a blast with the activities, and I am humbled by the opportunity to play some of my new music for the kids, their parents and my fans."
The benefit will kick off with an acoustic performance by James at The Children's Theater at the hospital, where he will give attendees a sneak peak into some of his new music from his forthcoming second studio album on Columbia Nashville.
Following the performance, James will head to Vanderbilt University Intramural Field One, adjacent to the children's hospital, where activities will include Frisbee, Kick Ball, Corn hole and more. Doors open at 8:30 a.m. central. Tickets are $25 with all proceeds going to the hospital.
