The Issa Trust Foundation is excited to help make an impact on the youth of Jamaica by hosting the inaugural 'For the Children' benefit concert featuring world-famous group Air Supply, along with special guest Tessanne Chin.

Set to take place on Saturday at Couples Sans Souci, for a spectacular night with a beautiful cause 'For the Children', all proceeds raised will be donated to the St Ann's Hospital Paediatric Ward, as the Issa Trust Foundation continues their mission to provide training, education, and essential equipment to promote the well-being and development of the children of Jamaica.

Following the concert will be an after-party on the beach with music by DJ Bambino. The gala night of music under the stars would not be possible without the help of sponsors. Platinum sponsors include Couples Resorts, JN Group, WATA, FLOW and RJRGLEANER Communications Group; Gold sponsors include CPJ, Rainforest Seafoods, Select Brands, Caribbean Airlines, Dolphin Cove, Caribbean Airlines, John Swaby Entertainment, Jamaica Arts Holdings, and Frazer Fontaine and Kong.

A silent online auction has been launched and will run throughout the concert before closing June 30. Auction items include collectibles from Usain Bolt's signed spikes from 2009 to a four-night stay at Couples Tower Isle Signature Oasis Spa Villa. Bidding will be accessible online on smartphones at the concert, and all proceeds will support Issa Trust Foundation's ongoing initiative to improve the St Ann's Bay Hospital Paediatric Ward.
