JB & Friends: Hannah's Buddies

The 9th Annual Hannah's Buddies Charity Classic
Good Times. Good Music. Good Cause.

Hannah Elliott with John Bell
The 2008 Hannah's Buddies Charity Classic will be held on February 8-9 in Orlando, FL. The golf tournament will be held at the Grand Cypress Golf Resort on February 8 with a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. The tournament will conclude with an awards reception at the clubhouse scoreboard.

On February 9, the golfers gather again at the House of Blues for the dinner and silent auction at 4:30 p.m. Each golfer is allowed one guest to accompany them for the evening. Following the dinner/silent auction is the John Bell and Friends Benefit Bash beginning at 8:00 p.m. The line-up this year will be announced soon and promises to be another great evening of music hosted by JB. Tickets for the concert are available at House of Blues.

In 1999, the first Hannah's Buddies Charity Classic was held in Orlando with 75 golfers and a dinner, silent auction and sold-out concert at the House of Blues. The concert has continued to draw massive crowds and the golf tournament now occupies two golf courses with more than 250 golfers from around the country. It all started with John Bell of Widespread Panic wanting to do something to help his goddaughter, Hannah, and children like her afflicted with the neuromuscular disease Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). In its first eight years, more than $1 million dollars has been raised for SMA research through this event. Year nine promises to bring even more needed funds for this fight against the number one genetic cause of death in children under two. For more information on SMA, please go to FightSMA.

I agree Milesgone! JB's gotta keep it together this year. He couldn't even remember all the words to Papa's last year. I mean, who doesn't know the words to Papa's? He better stay cool enough to come back and play with the friends this year.

Mcallis…You have to be smart to play golf? Are you sure you don’t mean rich? Could you explain your reasoning?

he must have meant rich. smart people would be doing something a little more productive with the 4 hours it takes to play 18 holes.

JB doesn't need to remember the lyrics, just like Jerry didn't need to. Let him get wasted, this thing is about a good time, and thats it.

If you didn't notice the golf and the show are on 2 different days instead of back to back on one day. This should help everyone be a little more clear headed the night of the show. Used to be one long drunk day, indeed!

flat 5 u are stupid to keep calling me that.

I saw the DVD of JB with Robert Randolph from the HOB a few years back

He sang a song with Roberts band, and he was TRASHED!@!!!! visibly so.

Then after the tune was over, he kept standing there drunk and swaying around while Robert was attempting to go into the next tune.

I speak from visible evidence.. YOU are IGNORANT.

I LOVE WSP AND JB. It made me sad to see that video. Any loss of control from musicians we love can always cause us a little discomfort.

Ignorance has nothing to do with how smart you are/aren't. You, milesgone, of all people, should know this!

What I mean is golf is a sport where you have to be quite smart to play. There are numerous factors to deal with ( i.g. wind, sun, dryness, temps, speed of fairway, speed of greens) This coupled with nervousness. You have to thing of different options on how to play each hole and shot. So yea, you can not be an idiot and play golf. As for being rich, that is not true. There are plenty of cheap golf courses out there..Just look and you will find one..
