Los Angeles, CA. – Duffing For Dollars Charity Golf Tournament, now going strong for six years straight is the music & touring industries most anticipated tournament where key players from the worlds of music, management, touring, entertainment and finance come together for a great cause every January. Music industry vets Kevin Lyman (Vans Warped Tour, Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival) and John Reese (Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Funny or Die’s Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival, SGE) gathered up their colleagues for an incredible day of golf and a night of way too many cocktails, wild awards and one-of-a-kind auctions. Hosted by Joe Sib of “Complete Control Radio” and “California Calling”, this year’s event raised over $41,000, totaling over $300,000 since it’s re-launch in 2010 for the “Unite The United” and “MusiCares” charities.

“Once again Duffing for Dollars was a great day for all and raised some nice funds for MusiCares. The only complaints I got were from people who missed it and wished they were there.” states Kevin Lyman
