Luke Combs Uses Georgia Show To Give Back

Sally Hale and Luke Combs

During his set in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday evening (July 8), Luke Combs paused his rowdy, energetic 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. 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.”
