The Issa Trust Foundation (ITF) and Couples Resorts, in association with the RJR/GLEANER Communications Group, present ‘An Evening with Air Supply & Third World’ on Saturday, June 1, with special guest Koffee. The all-Inclusive Couples-style event, under the patronage of Lady Allen, will be held under the stars on the lawns of the beautiful Couples Sans Souci Resorts in Ocho Rios.

International superstars Air Supply and global Reggae Ambassadors Third World will headline the biannual benefit concert to improve paediatric healthcare for Jamaica’s children. This year’s concert proceeds will be used as part of a project supported by the National Health Fund to establish new paediatric wards at the hospitals in Annotto Bay and Savanna-la-Mar.

The evening will be a night to remember for all the senses – sound, sight, taste, touch, and feel – as two of the world’s best bands share the stage for the first time ever. It will be an unforgettable night of great music, complemented by Couples’ world-class hospitality all while contributing to a great cause: the health and well-being of Jamaica’s children, who are its future.

Air Supply is no stranger to Jamaica, with their most recent performance in 2017 as official ambassadors for the Issa Trust Foundation playing to a capacity crowd of loving fans. Funds raised from the 2017 concert were matched by the foundation and resulted in the opening of a new J$40 million paediatric ward at the St Ann’s Bay Hospital last summer.

Over the last decade, the work of the Issa Trust Foundation has had an impact on many Jamaican families whose children have ­benefitted from improved healthcare facilties, state-of-the-art equipment, medicine, training, education, and medical missions spearheaded by the foundation.

The Issa Trust Foundation spent over U$9 million islandwide in 2018 alone, and according to the ITF president, Diane Pollard, “we have a lot more we would like to do to improve the system of healthcare available to the children, especially in rural Jamaica”.

‘An Evening with Air Supply & Third World’ is presented with the kind support of its sponsors WATA, Mayberry Investments, CPJ, CIBC, Rainforest Seafoods, Best Dressed Chicken, Jamaica Tourist Board, Proven, Cool Corp, First Rock Capital, JN Group, Fraser Fontaine & Kong, Marksman, Country Store, and National Outdoor Advertising. Tickets are available online at or islandwide at Couples Resorts, CPJ, Fontana Pharmacy, Country Store, Usain Bolt’s Tracks and Records, and Bridget Sandals. Event shuttle service will be available from Knutsford Express.
