Alice Cooper, Robby Krieger Set to Rock Celebrity Golf Tournament in March

UMe/RobbyKriegersJazzKitchen.comAlice Cooper and The Doors' Robby Krieger are among the famous rockers who will take part in a special concert event March 1 in Palm Desert, California, held in conjunction with the third annual Patrick Warburton Celebrity Golf TournamentMyDesert.com reports that the Friday Night Jam Session, which will help kick off the three-day fundraiser, also will include performances from ex-Eagles guitarist Don Felder, Chicago drummer Danny Seraphine, R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills and pop singer Kim Carnes.

In addition to the concert and golf matches, the benefit includes a gala dinner, a comedy show and live and silent auctions.  The events raise money for the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, which focuses on treating young people with cancer and other serious illnesses.

The tournament was founded in 2011 by actor Patrick Warburton, who's perhaps best known for his role as Puddy on Seinfeld.  The fundraiser is held at the Classic Club and will run through March 3.
