Participants in the 2014 Recording Industry Golf Tournament.

The 2014 Recording Industry Golf Tournament (RIGT) was held on June 2, 2014, at the Malibu Golf Club, and once again the Los Angeles recording community rose to the occasion, making the RIGT a huge success.

The event was organized by seasoned event producer Karen Dunn of KMD Productions and benefited the music program at A Place Called Home, a dynamic community center and safe haven in South Central Los Angeles where underserved youth 8 to 21 years old are empowered to take ownership of the quality and direction of their lives through programs in education, arts, and well-being. Grammy Award-winning recording veterans Ed Cherney and Al Schmitt once again served as honorary co-chairs for the afternoon’s festivities.
