The Lot Parties at THE PLAYERS Championship

April 4th, 2013 · Leave a Comment

In 2012, THE PLAYERS unveiled “The Lot,” a hospitality structure located outside the Nicklaus Gate in General Parking off of CR210, which hosts parties following the end of play. Wednesday through Saturday of tournament week, different organizations are hosting parties and functions at The Lot to extend the fun for fans, and, in the process, raise money for great local causes. Entrance to these events requires an additional ticket, separate from spectator tickets to the golf tournament, with all proceeds going to the charitable organization hosting the party.

Wednesday, May 8 – LIVE at the Lot hosted by the Monique Burr Foundation for Children, 5-10 p.m.
The Monique Burr Foundation for Children will host LIVE at The Lot with some of the finest food throughout Jacksonville, including The Good Food Company, Poe’s Tavern, Roy’s Restaurant and Sun Dog Brewing Co., drinks and entertainment. Headlining the show will be Tishamingo, a southern-rock, blues band. The opening act is Moors & McCumber. Kort McCumber is the nephew of Mark McCumber, past champion of THE PLAYERS. All net proceeds benefit the Monique Burr Foundation for Children to provide Speak Up Be Safe – a national bullying and child abuse prevention program being implemented in Florida elementary schools. Fans can purchase tickets at $100. For tickets or more information, visit www.LIVEatTheLotTPC.com.
