Winning bidders will receive limited edition goods and experience a “one-of-a-kind evening” featuring a farm-to-table dinner, crafted cocktails and be invited to an after-show s’mores roasting with the opportunity to meet Rhett and his wife.

“If anyone follows my wife Lauren or me on social media, they probably already know how important 147 is to us,” Rhett said. “We’re getting asked all the time by friends and fans about what they can do to help, so we wanted to put something together to help support all the work 147 is doing for orphans around the world. I can’t think of a better group of guys to help kick this off than Dierks, Walker and Shane and am looking forward to a couple other surprises we’re working on for the night.”

Additional guests and artists will be announced soon. Visit for more information.
