Watch Tito's Handmade Vodka's virtual music festival right here tomorrow.

Tito's is joining in on the virtual festival fun with its first ever, Tito's Made to Order Music Festival—a four-part virtual music festival kicking off at 7 p.m. Thursday with artists Channel Tres, Kali Uchis and Portugal. The Man.

The series will take place bi-weekly, each time representing a region—the first being the West; then the South at 7 p.m. Sept. 10 with Bun B, Morgan Wallen and Dierks Bentley; the East 7 p.m. Sept. 24 with A-Trak, Young M.A and Summer Walker; and ending in the North at 7 p.m. Oct. 8 with Claude VonStroke, Louis the Child and ZHU.

Tito's will be donating $100,000 to World Central Kitchen, with funds benefitting Black-owned restaurants and healthcare workers. During each show, viewers will be encouraged to make a donation that will enter them in a contest to win a virtual meet-and-greet with a festival headliner.

Now, the private practice conducts almost all of its visits virtually, either over the phone or on HIPAA-compliant video platforms.

Dr. Steven Dobberfuhl, an internal medicine physician, said telemedicine saved his practice—and has been a boon to his patients, around 75% of whom are 65 years or older and at high risk of contracting COVID-19.

"I didn't believe it would work as well as it has," he said.
