An avid golfer, Darius is letting his passion for the course once again assist those in need. For the second consecutive year, he will be hosting the ACM Lifting Lives Celebrity Golf Classic on April 6th at the TPC in Las Vegas. The tournament will be a part of “The Week Vegas Goes Country,” in preparation for the greatly anticipated 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards.
This particular event will benefit ACM Lifting Lives' Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund, which provides immediate relief to those in need in the music industry. Following the tournament will be the ACM Awards show that takes place April 7 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena at 8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.
This isn't Darius' first charitable initiative connected with ACM Lifting Lives, however. In 2011 he first performed the original song “Music From the Heart” with campers from the ACM Lifting Lives Music Camp on the ACM Awards to raise awareness about those with developmental disabilities. Additionally, he penned the song “Together, Anything is Possible” to raise money for the charitable initiatives affilaited with the PGA.
