Nashville, Tenn. (May 13, 2014) - The NEEDTOBREATHE Classic presented by Commonwealth Cares Foundation has announced celebrity guests, performers, and athletes who will attend the annual golf tournament benefiting Charleston area nonprofit Palmetto Medical Initiative (PMI). Band members of NEEDTOBREATHE - Bear Rinehart, Bo Rinehart and Seth Bolt - are long-time supporters of PMI and, last year, decided to lend their name to Commonwealth Cares Foundation's annual golf tournament to raise support.

This year, musical guests include NEEDTOBREATHE, Drew & Ellie Holcomb, Steven Curtis Chapman, Mark Bryan of Hootie & the Blowfish, John Mark McMillan, Ben Rector and Ed Roland. All musical guests will perform in a private concert for sponsors and participants.

Other special guests include PGA Tour winners Kevin Streelman (2013 Tampa Bay Championship) and Russell Henley (2013 Sony Open in Hawaii, 2014 Honda Classic). Former South Carolina quarterback and current Voice of the Gamecocks announcer Todd Ellis, as well as actor Justin Wheelon (Iron Man 3), will also participate in the tournament.

The band raised more than $100,000 for PMI through last year's tournament and additional fundraising endeavors. PMI is building sustainable medical clinics around the world, including Uganda and Nicaragua, and recently announced plans to expand its efforts into Burundi. The proceeds from the 2013 NEEDTOBREATHE Classic were used to construct a medical clinic in El Viejo, Nicaragua, which was dedicated in January 2014. This year's tournament proceeds will benefit another East African clinic, with work slated to begin in January 2015.

For registration or sponsorship opportunities, call 843-884-4545. NEEDTOBREATHE and other musicians will perform at an after-party concert for sponsors and players (separate VIP ticket available for purchase with golf registration).

NEEDTOBREATHE released their fifth studio album Rivers In the Wasteland last month, debuting at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. The band recently kicked off their headlining North American "Rivers In the Wasteland Tour." For more information, visitneedtobreathe.com.
