The possibility that Keith Urban may appear at the annual “It’s A Bloke Thing” luncheon held in Toowoomba is now more likely than ever after being sighted by waiting photographers at Sydney Airport last night. Every year, the luncheon is hosted in Toowoomba.
The story was confirmed to be true when Keith Urban landed at Wellcamp Airport at noon, took the stage at the perennially well-attended Prostate Cancer Awareness/Fundraiser event, and performed for an audience of roughly 500 guests who had paid to attend this very special event.
Urban is very passionate about and has a special place in his heart for the fight against prostate cancer. In addition to his grandfather and several other members of his family, his father, Robert, lost his fight with the illness in December 2015. He was powerless to cure his father of the illness.
The country megastar, who is currently touring the United States as part of his Graffiti-U World Tour, found time to return to Australia and participate in a fundraiser that has raised millions of dollars for prostate cancer research and awareness in just seven short years. Despite the fact that he is now on his Graffiti-U World Tour, performing all over the United States. despite the fact that he is currently giving performances all throughout America.
With almost $1.53 million raised for the It’s a Bloke Thing Foundation in 2017 owing to the generous contributions of the community, this event is one of the most successful daytime fundraising initiatives in Australia. One of the biggest midday fundraising initiatives ever is this one.
The lunchtime fundraising event that Keith assisted with raised a phenomenal total of $2,024,000.00 because he volunteered his time and didn’t charge anything for it. Keith deserves a lot of credit.
