BW&BK issued the following report:
Rock Superstars BON JOVI To Join Golf Legend Tiger Woods At Tiger Jam X, Presented by AT&T, May 26 at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas
Two powerhouses, Tiger Woods and Bon Jovi, will reunite for the 10th annual Tiger Jam, presented by AT&T Saturday, May 26, 2007, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. Marking ten years of unforgettable concerts, Tiger Jam X will also be a fitting tribute to the estimated 10 million young people Tiger Jam has helped by raising funds for the Tiger Woods Foundation.
A decade in the making, this celebration will begin with exclusive live and silent auctions and a gourmet dinner. Following the dinner and auctions, Woods will welcome Bon Jovi to the Mandalay Bay Events Center stage for what promises to be an amazing show.
“I am thrilled to mark 10 years of Tiger Jam with Bon Jovi,” Woods said. “We always welcome rock legends at Tiger Jam and having Bon Jovi headline is truly an honor. We have a lot to celebrate, so I know it will be an amazing night.”
Bon Jovi has remained one of rock’s biggest stars and has sold more than one hundred million albums worldwide. Flush with the success of their record-breaking world tour and multi-platinum album Have A Nice Day, Bon Jovi has completed a new album, Lost Highway, which will arrive in stores June 19th on Island Records/Mercury Nashville. '(You Want To) Make A Memory', the first single from the new album, was blasted out to radio on Tuesday, March 20th. Still being a forefront in the music industry for over two decades, Bon Jovi recently won the 2007 Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocal and made history by becoming the first Rock & Roll Band to have a #1 hit on Billboard's Hot Country Chart in May of 2006.
Since it’s creation in 1998, Tiger Jam has raised more than $10 million for the Tiger Woods Foundation and select Las Vegas based charities through its sold-out performances and one-of-a-kind auction items. In 2006, a meet and greet with Sting in New York raised $65,000 and a putting lesson with Tiger Woods raised $155,000. Sponsorships are now available for this exclusive event.

Tiger Jam was created by the Tiger Woods Foundation, an organization dedicated to empowering young people to reach their maximum potential. Proceeds from previous Tiger Jams have supported Child Haven, Center for Independent Living, Greater Las Vegas Inner City Games, Boys & Girls Club of Las Vegas, GRAMMY in the Schools and The VH1 Save the Music Foundation.
Established in 1996 by Tiger Woods and his father Earl, the Tiger Woods Foundation empowers young people to reach their highest potential through character development and educational programs. Specific program offerings from TWF include the 14-acre Tiger Woods Learning Center, a youth-education facility focused on helping young people make the connection between the classroom and a rewarding career, and Start Something, a nationwide character development program that boasts more than four million participants.
