Our philanthropic queen!
Rihanna has announced the first annual Diamond Ball set to take place on December 11 in Beverly Hills and to benefit the Clara Lionel Foundation.
RiRi founded the charity in 2012 in honor of her late grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite, making it her goal to raise funds for health, education, arts and culture globally.
Additionally, the charity supports cancer treatment and research in Barbados, which continues the efforts begun by Rihanna in 2012 when she made a large donation to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Bridgetown.
The money raised from the Diamond Ball will benefit the Clara Braithwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine by purchasing new equipment, among other enhancements.
