Dierks Bentley and Peyton Manning’s Guys Night Out

$750 Tickets and an $8,700 Guitar

Last Friday (May 8) was your lucky night if you like football and country music.

Dierks Bentley was the special guest at Peyton Manning’s Celebration of Caring gala in Indianapolis. It was a night for charity with proceeds benefiting the construction of a new hospitality house for families of patients at the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent.

Manning is now quarterback for the Denver Broncos, but prior to that, he was with the Indianapolis Colts for more than a decade.

So for $750, you could support a good cause, have cocktails and dinner and see a private performance from Bentley. And, even better, a Manning/Bentley duet on Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues.”

But for $8,700, you could have also taken home a Fender Squire Telecaster guitar autographed by both Manning and Bentley. That was the winning bid during the silent auction.

Other cool items that music fans went home with that night included a Bentley concert package that went for $5,550 and a Taylor Swift concert package that went for more than $10,000.
