Alex Lifeson participates in the 2016 Warburton St. Jude's Children's Hospital fund raiser

Friday night Alex Lifeson was one of a slew of musicians who participated in the 2016 Warburton St. Jude's Children's Hospital "Golf For Kids" fund raiser and celebrity jam session at JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert.  The Warburton event has previously raised more than 3 million-dollars for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and this past weekend raised  $1,725,635, becoming its top grossing golf tournament fundraiser in the United States, according to Rick Shadyac, CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising arm for St. Jude.

The event brought in more than 75 stars, songwriters and rock legends for a weekend of golf and one-of-a-kind music events. All events that were part of the tournament sold out for the first time in the tournament's 6-year history. The tournament and its events were held at JW Marriott Desert Springs and Classic Club in Palm Desert.
