Patrick Warburton Celeb "golfers" and songwriters and singers raise $800,000 - tons of pictures for you here

I'm thrilled that the Patrick Warburton golf and music event continues to raise more money for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital.

The four-day event that combines music, golf and raising money closed with its awards ceremony March 2 at the Classic Club in Palm Desert.

OK, my voice paid the price yesterday for my long weekend, but worth it? You betcha.

The event enjoyed a record 650+ attendees to its Friday Night Celebrity Jam Session, featuring performances by Mickey Thomas (Starship), John Elefante (Kansas), Kim Carnes, Danny Seraphine (Chicago), Jeff Hanna (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Teri Nunn (Berlin), Dave Brock & Robbie Krieger (The Doors), Mike Mills (R.E.M.), Steve Cropper (Blues Brothers) and moi.

Other celebrities who attended the events included actors Luke Perry, Cheech Marin, Tommy Chong, Peter Gallagher, Richard Kind, Bruce Thomas, Raymond Cruz, Sam McMurray, and Oliver Hudson; former NFL stars Sterling Sharpe, Kordell Stewart and Jim McMahon, former pro baseball great Steve Garvey, and NHL Hall of Famer Grant Fuhr.
