Country music heads to Necker Island this November! The 2018 Manuka Doctor Necker Cup presented by Metal is right around the corner — and we are excited to announce our U.S. Virgin Islands neighbor Kenny Chesney will be attending and performing at the End of the World Party on November 28!
Songs for the Saints, Chesney’s brand new album, was the top selling all-genre album the week it was released — and “Get Along,” its first single, became his 30th #1. Songs for the Saints is close to our hearts, as it was written and recorded during Hurricanes Irma and Maria, which caused catastrophic damage to the Virgin Islands last year. Chesney, who’s been raising funds for the ongoing relief efforts through his Love for Love City Fund, is donating all proceeds from the album to the continued recovery and restoration of the islands.
We are hoping the country music superstar brings his racquet, as we would love to see him take on Sir Richard Branson in a few games on the Necker Cup courts! Perhaps we even get a friendly match between our current attending WTA pros—Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki, as we’re certain they’d enjoy partnering with Chesney and Richard for a very entertaining match!
What a year this 7th Annual Necker Cup is shaping up to be! We are elated to return to our event home on Necker Island and raise funds for several amazing charities. There are still some opportunities to join us. For more information, visit www.neckercup.com.
