We love when good people do good things for their community. This is a story about those with abundance helping those with a need. And when you add the moment that Kane Brown joins Blake Shelton for an impromptu performance? It doesn’t get much better.

If you saw the movie “American Underdog,” I don’t need to tell you about the philanthropic efforts of Kurt Warner, but I do want to brag about what they do. Here’s a little back story … Kurt is a Hall of Fame, Super Bowl-winning quarterback and football analyst. He and his wife Brenda, a former nurse and Marine, best-selling author, accomplished metal artist, and humanitarian, founded an amazing organization called “Treasure House.”
According to

Brenda and Kurt are parents to seven children, including their eldest son, Zack, who suffered a traumatic brain injury as a child. With inspiration from Zack, they envisioned a community where people with intellectual and developmental disabilities could come together to overcome perceived challenges, develop meaningful relationships and contribute their gifts to society. Recognizing that other families also dreamt of this, the Warners rallied community champions, donors, and volunteers in Arizona and nationally to establish Treasure House Phoenix, which opened its doors in August 2018.

“Treasure House has the ability to take this group of what everybody looks at as underdogs and say, ‘Destiny belongs to you. The future belongs to you. You can walk in your purpose. You can live in your dreams,’” said Kurt Warner at Celebrity Game Night. “Parents and families are starting to hope and dream for something bigger because of Treasure House.”

After sustaining a fall at just four months old that caused brain swelling, Zack Warner was not expected to make it through the night. The accident left him blind, but he defied all the odds. Zack is now 31, leading a purposeful life at Treasure House alongside 29 other residents with intellectual and developmental disabilities who have their own Treasure House Stories. “These 29 residents can put their stuff in their apartments and invite a friend over for a coke; they can wake up and say I’m going to work; they can say ‘do you want to dance tonight?!’ It is an absolute beautiful place that just came from something heavy on my heart,” said Brenda Warner at Celebrity Game Night. “I am the mother of a child that deserves to be seen, deserves to be heard, deserves to be enjoyed, and deserves a full life.”

This great organization held a fund raiser for their residents and it included a performance by Blake Shelton, who not only performed, but he pulled a couple of his friends on stage, too. Check it out …
