Kara DioGuardi Hosts Golf Scramble and Gala in Florida

Monday, April 26th, 2010

On Saturday April 24, our friend American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi hosted a fundraiser golf tournament and dinner at Golden Hills Golf and Turf Club in Ocala, FL.  Proceeds will be used to build a new music studio for young adults at our treatment center in Citra. LPGA players Danielle Downey, Brittany Lincicome, and Meredith Duncan (pictured below) joined Kara on the course; golfer Lisa Strom also joined participants. Other celebrity golfers included ESPN radio sportscaster Brady Ackerman and author and former PGA tour player Wally Armstrong.

A cocktail reception and awards dinner followed the golf scramble, where Kara sang two songs she co-wrote and auctioned off two VIP tickets to the American Idol finale in May.

Check out coverage of the event at Ocala.com.

  • Our family enjoyed the entire day…golf with Brittany Lincicome, a wonderful dinner, so graciously hosted and attended. VIP tickets to the Idol finale for my husband Bill and I to end a near perfect day in Ocala.
    Thank you Bernadette Castro and Kara Dioguardi for letting us share in your work with the Phoenix House.
