The event is part of Cuyuna Regional Medical Center Brainerd Lakes Tour Showcase. This tour showcase is in its second year of a communitywide effort to secure an “Official Korn PGA Tour Event in central and Brainerd lakes area,” a news release stated. The goal is to drive economic development and charitable giving while making a statement about the golf and recreational assets in this area.The Korn Ferry Tour, formerly the Web.comTour, is the development tour for the U.S.-based PGA Tour and features professional golfers who have not yet reached the PGA Tour, or have done so but failed to win enough FedEx Cup points to stay at that level. The PGA Korn Ferry Tour, the PGA Tour and the PGA Champions Tour are the steps to the top of the professional golf world. Three out of four PGA Tour players got their start on the Korn Ferry Tour.
Entertainment is described in a news release as a “fun, high energy evening of great music. Get ready to party like it’s 1999!”
Carolyn and Erik Huff of Huff Entertainment Solutions are assisting the Brainerd Lakes Tour Showcase with the gala.
“When they asked us what type of show would be fun and appeal to all ages and most people’s musical tastes, we said you can’t go wrong with a tribute to Prince,” Carolyn Huff stated. “Chase & Ovation performed at the Frozen Four a few years ago in this area and people were blown away by them so it was a no brainer to bring them back. They are a top-notch entertainment entity out of Minneapolis guaranteed to be put on a great show and encourage the audience to relax, let themselves go and have a blast.”
The tribute band will perform songs by Prince including “When Doves Cry,” “Kiss,” “Delirious” and “I Would Die 4 U.”
Carolyn Huff stated, “It’s a perfect part of the plans for the Brainerd Lakes Tour Showcase week of great golf and other special events. We are blessed to be part of such an exciting event for the Baxter/Brainerd area.”
