Congratulations to Jackie Vermette on winning the Darius Rucker & Friends Ultimate Nashville Experience! She and her husband, David, were flown out to Nashville and had the trip of a lifetime! Here is what Jackie had to say about the event:
"Thank you Chideo for helping me check-off a top 3 item from my bucket list! Just a few weeks ago, I was notified by a Chideo representative that my name had been selected as the winner of the Darius & Friends Ultimate Nashville Experience. To say that I am Darius Rucker fan would be an understatement. Over the past 20 years, he has been my favorite musical artist and has provided the "sound track" to my life. As a matter of fact, my husband proposed to me on Aug 14th 1996 at a Hootie and the Blowfish concert in Hartford, CT. In May of 1999, we traveled to San Diego, CA where I completed the Rock and Roll marathon (on May 23rd 1999 for the Leukemia Team in Training) and Hootie and the Blowfish played the celebration concert following the marathon. In addition, I have seen every concert they played for the Fishhouse Foundation at the Hampton Beach Ball room in New Hampshire. When Darius started his solo career, I did my best to attend any local concert performances. These included multiple shows at the Eastern States Exposition, Mohegan Sun and a very hard to believe it happened concert in my hometown of Holyoke, MA. With each concert, my group of friends and fellow Darius fans grew larger and larger."
"As noted above, many of the performances were associated with Darius' charitable interests. Upon learning that Darius had recently partnered with Chideo to benefit the St. Jude Children's Hospital (my favorite charity by the way), I was extremely motivated to make a donation through the Chideo.com site. So, I hope you can imagine the excitement that I experienced upon receiving the notification call from Chideo!"
"This experience included a trip for two to Nashville, TN to attend the June 8th Darius & Friends Benefit Concert and the June 9th Darius & Friends Celebrity Golf Tournament. Both events are put on by Darius to support the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Thank you Team Chideo and Team Rucker for treating my husband and I like real VIPs. At the concert, we went backstage and hung out with Darius' band before being introduced to Darius at the conclusion of his meet and greet with fans. Everyone was extremely generous with their time and the concert was a blast! At the golf tournament, we played 18 holes of golf at a beautiful country club surrounded by multiple famous country music artists and St. Jude hospital supporters."
"Thank you again to Chideo and Darius Rucker and his management team for your hospitality and kindness. My husband and I feel truly blessed to have won this experience. Our 3 days in Nashville will provide us with a lifetime of wonderful memories. We may never be able to pay Darius back for his kindness but we will do our best to pay it forward.
We would like to thank Jackie and all of the other supporters for helping out such a great cause, the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Don't forget you can still help out by donating today!
