CHARLESTON, S.C. – Registration is open for the 2019 NEEDTOBREATHE Classic, a celebrity golf tournament and musical event benefiting Charleston-based nonprofit OneWorld Health.

The seventh annual NEEDTOBREATHE Classic is set for March 25, 2019, at the Daniel Island Club. Golfers from around the country converge on the Lowcountry for a chance to hit the links with musicians, athletes and actors. The event culminates in an evening concert featuring southern rock band NEEDTOBREATHE and other musicians at the Charleston Music Farm.

Last year’s sell-out event raised more than $200,000 for OneWorld Health for its work empowering communities around the world to achieve long-term improvements in health and quality of life. The annual golf tournament was started by Commonwealth Cares Foundation, the charitable foundation of Daniel Island financial services firm Commonwealth.

“This event combines an incredible day of golf and a once-in-a-lifetime concert experience – all with the benefit of supporting an organization that is saving lives around the world,” said Britt Gilbert, founder of Commonwealth Cares Foundation. “The 2018 event sold out weeks in advance, so get signed up now or, during this holiday season, give someone the gift of an amazing experience while giving back to an important global charity.”

Choose a celebrity golf experience or a simple standard foursome – both of which include access to the after-party concert. Register by Nov. 30 for early-bird pricing. Additional discounted pricing is available in December for anyone interested surprising a loved one with a day of golf. Registration and sponsorship details are available at www.commonwealthcares.org.

In 2013, NEEDTOBREATHE partnered with Commonwealth Cares Foundation, lending its name to the annual golf tournament and adding a musical concert with the mission of raising funds and increasing awareness for OneWorld Health. NEEDTOBREATHE band members include Bear Rinehart (vocals, guitar), Bo Rinehart (guitar, vocals), Seth Bolt (bass, vocals), and Josh Lovelace (keys, vocals).

NEEDTOBREATHE, which has roots in South Carolina, is a long-time partner of OneWorld Health. One dollar from every concert ticket sold goes back to the band’s support of OneWorld Health. To date, NEEDTOBREATHE has raised over $2 million through ticket sales, fan donations and the golf tournament and helped to open two NEEDTOBREATHE Medical Centers in Tola and Jinotega, Nicaragua.

On the heels of the biggest and best-selling tour of their career, NEEDTOBREATHE will hit the road in February for their Acoustic Live Tour, this time in support of its first-ever acoustic live album, Acoustic Live Vol. 1, which is available now.

NEEDTOBREATHE Golf Classic a Stroke of Luck for OneWorld Health

Proceeds provide funding for medical care in Nicaragua and Uganda
Stormy skies didn’t dampen spirits at the sixth annual NEEDTOBREATHE Classic held April 23 at the Daniel Island Golf Club in partnership with Commonwealth Cares Foundation. The golf outing, which featured athletes, musicians and pro players, raised more than $200,000 in support of the international nonprofit OneWorld Health.

In 2013, the Commonwealth Cares Foundation partnered with NEEDTOBREATHE on the foundation’s annual charity golf tournament with hopes of creating something special. The focus was on developing an event that not only raised valuable funds but also increased awareness of the mission of OneWorld Health, a nonprofit organization based in Charleston that aims to bring sustainable quality healthcare to developing communities in Central America and Africa.

The partnership resulted in a first-class two-day event that combines the best of golf, music and giving. To date, more than $1.2 million has been raised to start and sustain two NEEDTOBREATHE Medical Centers in Tola and Jinotega, Nicaragua.

Slogging it out on the fairways until heavy rain forced players back to the clubhouse were Gamecocks Sterling Sharpe and Connor Shaw, Clemson Tiger Kevin Youngblood, three-time GRAMMY winner TobyMac, country artist David Nail, friends of the band including John Mark McMillan and Jon McLaughlin, and five-time GRAMMY nominee Hunter Hayes, who performed with breakout country star Devin Dawson.

The Charleston-based foursome that makes up NEEDTOBREATHE is lauded for their humanitarian efforts and widely acknowledged by music devotees and media tastemakers for their anthemic, alt-rock dynamic. Brothers Bear Rinehart (vocals, guitar) and Bo Rinehart (guitar, vocals), Seth Bolt (bassist/vocalist), and Josh Lovelace (keyboardist/vocalist) have earned those accolades through musicianship and innovation.
Their forthcoming collection of songs, Forever On Your Side (Niles City Sound Sessions), has garnered attention after the release of the first track, “Bridges Burn,” and is the title of their 37-city headlining tour that kicks off Aug. 10 with stops at the Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville, the Greek in Los Angeles, and a likely third career sell-out at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colo. The tour ends on Oct. 7 with a performance at the Volvo Car Stadium on Daniel Island.

He will invite the game’s stars as well as other celebrities with a passion for golf on the show for conversations that will span the worlds of golf and entertainment.

I’ve been lucky enough to play with and get to know well some of the best golfers on tour.? While we’re on the course, I’m looking for swing tips and all they want to do is talk music. SiriusXM is the perfect place to blend both of those worlds into one show, and I am really excited to get started.”

Since re-introducing himself to the world as a solo country artist, his musical life has had a remarkable second act that has featured many chart-topping hits. Rucker’s as-yet-untitled fifth Capitol Records Nashville album will be released later this year

Rucker’s passion for golf has been conspicuous since the game played a prominent role in the 1995 music video for “Only Wanna Be With You,” one of the earliest hits for Hootie & the Blowfish.? He plays nearly every day when he is touring and was a VIP guest of Team USA at the 2016 Ryder Cup.

Rucker is also actively involved with several golf events.? These include the “Darius Rucker Intercollegiate,” the annual women’s college golf tournament held in Hilton Head; the Annual Hootie & the Blowfish Monday After the Masters celebrity pro-am tournament; the “Darius and Friends” concert and golf tournament that raised over $1 million for St. Jude Children’s Hospital in the eight years since its inception; as well as the ACM Lifting Lives?
