On Saturday, December 5, Usain Bolt , OJ, C.D. will simply be DJ Usain at his 9.58 SuperParty.

Bolt will invite his friends, family and fans to celebrate with him, in real Jamaican style, at the end of what was a most exhilarating international athletics season.

Bolt, who is a major giver to the United Way seeks to find ways to increase the contributions that he makes to charities such as the development of youth and sports, as well as other needy projects. Proceeds from the SuperParty will be channeled through the United Way to be distributed among the projects with which he has aligned himself. A significant percentage of the proceeds will also go into assisting with the purchase of land for a health centre in his hometown of Sherwood Content, which now faces the possibility of losing its home.

In addition, Bolt takes his self-appointed task of promoting Jamaica to the world very seriously, and tries to do this in every way that he can. He will be inviting persons from all over the world to come and experience Jamaica and to get to know the country which he holds so dear.
