Country music artist Wade Bowen will host his 11th annual “Wade Bowen Classic” concert and celebrity golf tournament on November 2 and 3 in Waco, TX. This year’s event benefits Postpartum Support International.
An all-star concert kicks off the two-day event at the Heart of Texas Fairground GE Building in Waco at 7pm on November 2nd. The concert will feature Wade Bowen, as well as Cross Canadian Ragweed and Stoney LaRue. More “surprise” guests will be announced in the coming weeks. The golf tournament the next day will be a two-man scramble and will take place at the beautiful Cottonwood Creek Golf Course in Waco.
“I’m so proud of how this event has grown and how everyone has come together to raise so much money,” said Bowen. “This year we are partnering with PSI, which hits really close to home for me because my wife battled postpartum depression after the birth of our first child, and I know how severely it can affect families. Believe me when I tell you that it is a cause that needs more awareness.”
Bowen recently released his new album “If We Ever Make It Home” featuring the song “Turn on the Lights,” which he wrote about his family’s personal experience with postpartum depression.
Tickets for both components of the weekend are available and start at $15. Over the past two years, the Bowen Classic has raised nearly $60,000. For questions regarding sponsorship or group ticket rates, please contact “Big Hearted Babes.”
