[ARCHIVED] New Performers Added to Benefit Concert Event


If you thought the Tony Gwynn Memorial Benefit Concert Event was packed with talent before, just wait! Special Guest Richie McDonald, the face and voice of country music’s preeminent group, Lonestar, will perform. Former Charger linebacker, Shawne Merriman, and former major league pitcher and San Diego Padres television commentator, Mark Grant, will be on hand to share stories and memories about Tony.

Join us at 8:00 p.m. on April 1, at the beautiful Poway Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets range from $60 to $100 and can be purchased online at: If you purchase four or more $100 tickets, you will receive two VIP passes to a pre-show backstage meet and greet with the performers.

The event will also feature a live auction of unique Tony Gwynn memorabilia, and the opportunity to be recognized as a sponsor on the memorial’s donor wall. The evening will conclude with the unveiling of the selected memorial design. All proceeds will go directly to fund the project. Don’t miss the opportunity to honor this great man!
