Ozzie & Friends: A Concert To Benefit PGA REACH
President of the Gateway PGA Foundation and MLB Hall of Famer, Ozzie Smith, invites you to join him for a night of music, comedy and community, with the “Ozzie and Friends Concert—A Benefit for PGA REACH” May 1st, 2014 at the Peabody Opera House.
With this second annual benefit concert, Ozzie has pulled out all of the stops by inviting two special guests and welcoming back a very talented family member, son Nikko. Headlining the evening will be country music star, Vince Gill, who has sold more than 26 million albums, received 20 Grammy Awards, and earned 18 CMA Awards, which included Entertainer of the Year in 1993 and 1994. Also performing is America’s funniest female and St. Louis native, Kathleen Madigan. Kathleen is world renowned for her ability to make people laugh and has taken home many awards, including the American Comedy and Phyllis Diller award for “Best Female Comedian”. Nikko Smith continues to make St. Louis proud with his musical talents and will display the abilities that were seen across the country as a finalist in the 2005 Season of American Idol.
The proceeds from this event will help benefit the youth of the community by going directly to the PGA REACH. PGA REACH (Recreation, Education, Awareness, Community, and Health) focuses its resources and volunteers on keeping kids in school. As part of that, it recognizes that 80% of youth’s waking hours are spent outside of the classroom. PGA REACH has partnered with local organizations, corporations, and the community to invest in filling idle time for at-risk youth in our neighborhoods by creating meaningful change through new relationships, educational assistance, and greater access to activities. This program will also secure, support, and extend the REACH of local philanthropic organizations that help keep kids in school and improve their health, wellness, and career prospects not only for the present time, but for the future.
