Luke Combs Gives Meet & Greet Proceeds to Kids With Life-Threatening Illnesses
Fans who buy upgraded passes to see and meet Luke Combs will be giving their money to a great cause. The singer's his meet-and-greet program, which launched in January, will benefit Camp Sunshine, a Georgia-based camp for children with life-threatening illnesses.
A cause close to Combs' manager's heart, Combs promises that all of the money he makes from the VIP experience (available for purchase on his website) will go directly to the organization. The passes, which are an upgrade from a concert ticket, cost $49 and include a number of bonuses, including handwritten "Hurricane" lyrics and a two-song acoustic performance.
Combs invited Sally Hale, Executive Director of Camp Sunshine, to his show in Atlanta on July 8, where he presented the organization with a check for $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,” the "Hurricane" hitmaker says. “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 kids' lives. They are the real heroes.”
Hale shared her gratitude to the country singer and his fans for helping to provide the camp with fun programs for kids who attend. “We are so very grateful to Luke for this tremendous donation and for introducing Camp Sunshine to his many fans," she says. "This gift will be used to provide much needed programs throughout the year for children with cancer and their families.”
Combs will continue his VIP meet-and-greet program for Camp Sunshine throughout his remaining 2017 tour dates. He's touring in support of his debut album, This One's for You, which came out in June.
