Posted on 2 min read 44 views

Rihanna is offering members of the Rihanna Navy (her fanbase) a chance to score two tickets to her third annual Diamond Ball in exchange for a $1 donation to the Clara Lionel Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded in 2012 by the pop icon, whose goal is to improve global access to education. Rihanna announced the “Dollar Campaign” this past Tuesday (August 22, 2017).

The black-tie event will take place in New York City at the famous Cipriani Wall Street restaurant on September 14, 2017. The Clara Lionel Foundation was named in honor of Riri’s grandparents Clara and Lionel Braithwaite, and the Dollar Campaign was introduced in order to give fans the opportunity to support the singer’s mission for global education by visiting the Clara Lionel Foundation website and making a $1 donation for a chance at winning round-trip airfare to New York as well as a one-night stay in a hotel, and of course, a seat reserved for two amongst the biggest celebrities and philanthropists in the entertainment industry. Now through September 5, fans can make their way to the foundations website to donate. The winner will be selected on September 7, 2017.

Proceeds from the donations will go to supporting the Foundation’s global education, health, and emergency response programs. According to the foundation, each $1 donated will provide one brick for a school in Malawi, every $10 will provide ten books to students, and every $20 will pay for an entire month of schooling for a student.

The first annual Diamond Ball took place in 2014 at The Vineyard in Beverly Hills, California and was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel with over 600 guests in attendance including fashionista, Kim Kardashian, as well as Ellen Pompeo, Salma Hayek, and Brad Pitt who spoke at the event and introduced Rihanna’s performance.

This year’s Diamond Ball will be another epic evening, hosted by comedian Dave Chapelle and is said to have performances by Kendrick Lamar and Calvin Harris. The winner of the Dollar Campaign is sure to have a night to remember. Check out a few photos from the previous years below!
