Tiger Jam and Golden Heart awards

A couple of quick updates... First of all, Tiger Jam raised $1 million:
For the third time in 14 years, Jon Bon Jovi rocked Tiger Woods’ annual concert fundraiser Tiger Jam, and this weekend was the best of the hat track, raising $1 million. It’s difficult to believe that Jon, 50, is stronger than ever jumping, racing and running all over the Mandalay Bay Events Center stage.

It was “a jukebox full of rock and roll hits,” as Jon put it himself, and the sold-out house loved them all.

There are photo gallery links at Las Vegas Sun and Zimbio. I'll put videos up soon.

Also, check out the JBJ and Friends set list and discuss the show here.

Meanwhile, Richie Sambora is going to be honoured at the Golden Heart Awards on May 7 for his work with the Midnight Mission:
Grammy award-winning musician Richie Sambora will be honored at the 12th Annual Golden Heart Awards on May 7 – along with Del and Bettina Breckenfeld – for his philanthropic work with The Midnight Mission, a human services agency offering emergency services, drug and alcohol recovery and transitional programs for homeless men, women and children in Los Angeles.

The Golden Heart Awards will take place at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and will begin with a 6:00 pm reception, followed by dinner, the awards and entertainment.

“I have a profound respect for the Midnight Mission,” says Bon Jovi guitarist Sambora. “I’m inspired by the work they do day in and day out. I’m proud to be affiliated with such a solution-minded outreach program. For the betterment of our community, I gladly contribute whenever I’m able to lend my support to the cause in any way I can. To have the Midnight Mission recognize me with this award is humbling and an incredible honor.”
