Official Press Release:
“WADE BOWEN CLASSIC” CELEBRITY GOLF TOURNAMENT AND CONCERT SET FOR JUNE 1 & 2 IN WACO, TX
Golfer Registration & Concert Tickets Go On Sale This Friday February 28th
Nashville, TN – (Feb 24, 2014) – Award winning singer/songwriter Wade Bowen will host his 16th Annual Bowen Classic celebrity golf tournament and concert benefiting the Bowen Family Foundation on June 1st and 2rd, in Bowen’s hometown of Waco, TX. Wade Bowen and family established the Bowen Family Foundation, so funds raised from his annual charity event could be shared with many different organizations in need each year. Over the past five years, Bowen has raised close to $750,000 for various local organizations in need.
“I truly love having the opportunity to help those in need, which is one of the many reasons the Bowen Classic is very important to me,” said Bowen. “I’ve been very privileged over the last 16 years to have such dedicated and hard working friends and family to help contribute to the success of this event and The Bowen Family Foundation. I look forward to continuing my efforts to raise money for others, while having a blast doing it!”
The 2-day event kicks off with an all-star concert on Sunday June 1st at Indian Spring Park (100 University Parks Drive between Franklin and Washington Ave.) with concert gates opening at 2:30 PM. The annual benefit concert has a history of hosting top tier talent each year, however it is probably best known for the 2-hour jam that concludes the concert. Fans never know who all will show up to join Bowen and his band, for one-of-a-kind musical collaborations that always make the night uniquely special. Some of the friends who have joined Bowen in the past have included the Randy Rogers Band, Josh Abbott Band, Aaron Watson, Neal McCoy Official Fan Page, Jason Boland & The Stragglers, Cody Canada & The Departed, Cody Johnson Band, Charlie Worsham, Casey Donahew Band and many more of Country Music’s most talented artists. The event continues the next morning, Monday June 2nd at 11:00 AM with a two-man golf scramble at the beautiful Cottonwood Creek Golf Course (5201 Bagby, Waco, TX).
