On Saturday 6 November at Adelaide’s Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide 36ers Isaac Humphries will host Tunes for Charity concert with 100% of proceeds donated to the Ronald McDonald House.
The 23-year-old former NBA player who has crossed paths with J-Lo on his musical journey and has also hosted a sell-out benefit concert in the United States has a passion for both basketball and music.
He explained he is excited to merge the two and bring his show to Adelaide for the first time.
“From the moment I arrived in Adelaide I felt extremely welcome and supported by the community. This concert benefit will allow me to give back to a city that has been so good to me,” Isaac said.
“The show will be made up of eight songs in the first half and eight songs in the second half based off my Adelaide 36ers jersey number, that being #8.”
“You can expect a rich performance with an assortment of covers during which I will both sing and play the piano.”
Isaac is hoping to raise significant money for Ronald McDonald House.
“I believe the Adelaide community will get behind this cause and contribute to a greater purpose,” he says.
“I feel passion, excitement and a sense of fulfilment surrounding the charity concert and hope many others will too.”
His chosen charity Ronald McDonald House provides more than 1.4 million overnight stays for family members of hospitalised children, saving approximately $443 million in accommodation and meal expenses.
Their housing programs are located within 100 metres of top children’s hospitals, allowing parents who are far from home stay close to their sick children all while having access to a comfortable, homely environment.
Established in 1974, The charity now has more than 377 Ronald McDonald House programs operating in 45 countries and regions around the world. As a collective they have provided support and comfort to more than 10 million families since 1974.
Tunes for Charity will take place at 7:00pm on Saturday November 6 at the Thebarton Theatre.
