During his set in Atlanta, Georgia on July 8, breakthrough artist Luke Combs paused his show to make way for a special moment on stage. Earlier this year, Combs announced his brand new VIP Meet & Greet program established to benefit Camp Sunshine, a Georgia-based retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses, which Combs first learned of through his manager, Chris Kappy, and friends who have been impacted by the organization – view the video announcement here. At Saturday night’s show, Combs invited Sally Hale, Executive Director of Camp Sunshine, to join him on stage where he presented her with a donation of $22, 235.
“Camp Sunshine offers children fighting illnesses this awesome place to do what kids do best – be kids. I love everything about that because all kids deserve the chance to run, play and be carefree,” shares Combs. “I’m so honored that my fans and I are able to give back and be a small part of the impactful work Camp Sunshine is doing in these kid’s lives. They are the real heroes.”
Sally Hale, Executive Director for Camp Sunshine remarks, “We are so very grateful to Luke for this tremendous donation and for introducing Camp Sunshine to his many fans. This gift will be used to provide much needed programs throughout the year for children with cancer and their families.”
Combs plans to continue his VIP Meet & Greet program for Camp Sunshine for all his 2017 tour dates. Fans can learn more about the exclusive opportunity by visiting Comb’s website here. For more on Camp Sunshine, visit CampSunshine.org.
