Actor Patrick Warburton and his wife Cathy recently completed the 4th Annual Warburton Celebrity Golf Tournament, which has raised more than $2 million for St. Jude in just four years. Dedicated St. Jude supporters, the Warburtons created an annual golf tournament to benefit St. Jude after touring the hospital and meeting patients and their families. This year’s event raised more than $881,000.

The four-day fundraiser began with the all-new Songwriters’ Night that featured a group of renowned Nashville songwriters, followed by the Friday Night Celebrity Jam Session that included performances by Mickey Thomas (Starship), Kim Carnes, Danny Seraphine (Chicago), Dave Brock and Robby Krieger (The Doors), Mike Mills (R.E.M.), Steve Cropper (Blues Brothers) and Headline News morning anchor Robin Meade. Other celebrities who attended the weekend events included actors Luke Perry, Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong.
