RITS pledges more than $100,000 to charity with SMTOWN concert
Running Into The Sun (RITS), organizer of SMTOWN Live World Tour III in Singapore, will be donating more than $100,000 from the concert tickets sale, in support of the SportCares Foundation and Movement.
With 23,000 tickets sold to date, less than 1,000 tickets are currently available for sale. Proceeds from a total of 500 tickets sale amounting to S$109,000, from now till November 23, will be pledged to SportsCares.
SportCares is a foundation established by the Singapore Sports Council, to improve the welfare of the country’s under-privileged, disadvantaged and/or disabled citizens, to provide grants and scholarships, and to fund programmes that develop character and leadership potential. It also hopes to connect donors, volunteers and recipients, and to inculcate stronger social values among Singaporeans through sport.
It is now a two-week countdown to the biggest K-pop concert ever staged in Singapore that will showcase eight massively popular fledglings from SM Entertainment. Included in the line-up are Kangta, BoA, TVXQ, Super Junior, Girls' Generation, SHINee, f(x), EXO-K and EXO-M.
“While the team is busy running around with preparations, we thought it is important not to lose sight in giving back. With a concert like SMTOWN that has attracted a massive number of audiences almost on par with the National Day Parade, it is a great opportunity and time for us to pay it forward. As a young concert organizer that also believes in sport, we’re pleased to participate in a cause like SportsCares,” says Beatrice Chia-Richmond, Creative Director of RITS.
Individuals or companies who are keen to join the cause can purchase the tickets directly through RITS by emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
