Carnival Cruise Line Donates 100 Percent of Proceeds of Ticket Sales of Carnival LIVE Performances by Comedian Chris Tucker

Posted on: September 25th, 2017 - Featured, News Blog

 

Popular comedian Chris Tucker performed two sold-out shows while Carnival Liberty and Carnival Breeze were docked in Nassau as part of the Carnival LIVE concert series.

Continuing Carnival Cruise Line’s hurricane relief efforts, Carnival is donating 100 percent of the proceeds from ticket sales from the two performances to assist islands affected by Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria.

Carnival ships are also delivering critical supplies to affected Caribbean islands following the storms. Carnival Fascination has dropped off pallets of water, food, and other items for residents of Barbuda and St. Maarten during port calls to Antigua and St. Kitts, respectively.

Additionally Carnival Cruise Line’s parent company, Carnival Corporation, the Miami HEAT Charitable Fund, and the Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation are pledging up to $10 million in funding and in-kind support for relief and rebuilding efforts in Florida and throughout the Caribbean following Hurricane Irma.  For Hurricane Harvey, Carnival Cruise Line, Carnival Corporation and the Micky and Madeleine Arison Family Foundation have already donated $2 million to support the relief and rebuilding efforts.

Carnival guests can also participate in the relief effort by clicking here or texting SUPPORT to 707070.

Our thoughts are with everyone affected by these storms.
