Isaac Humphries to Host Benefit Concert in Lexington

0

Former Kentucky men’s basketball player Isaac Humphries is returning to Kentucky to perform a benefit concert to support the Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Bluegrass.

 

The concert will take place on June 23rd at 6 p.m. ET. at the Lexington Opera House.

 

“I’m so excited to share this experience with my Kentucky family,” Humphries said. “While I was a player at UK, Coach (John) Calipari always stressed servant leadership and impacting the lives of others. It’s no secret that I have a love for music and I have spent years developing this very idea. I have always wanted to share this side of myself with this particular community and help this specific organization that I respect so much.

 

The Ronald McDonald House is a prevalent presence on Kentucky’s campus and I have always admired what the House does for families. It was important to me to return to a community that I consider my second home and impact this organization and city that I love so much.”



 

Humphries played two seasons for the Wildcats before turning pro following his sophomore season. He spent his first season playing with the Sydney Kings, where he averaged 6.9 points and 3.6 rebounds on his way to being named NBL Rookie of the Year. Last season, he played for the Erie Bayhawks before finishing the season in the NBA with the Atlanta Hawks.

 

Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster.com. Pricing ranges from $35 to a $100 VIP experience that includes a meet-and-greet with Humphries following the show. All ticket proceeds from the event will support RMHC® of the Bluegrass.
