Singer Rihanna’s charity, Clara Lionel, works to help underprivileged communities around the world receive a better quality of life and this year she held the 2nd annual Diamond ball to raise money for the charity.
The Singer spoke to E!, saying “It means a lot. It’s the second year and it’s almost doubled in attendance. So many people came out and donated and are supporting this charity tonight,”
At $3,000 a ticket and additional donations made after the auctions, the event raised over $3 million to support the foundation. A replica of the gold dress Rihanna was wearing was auctioned at $45, 500!!!
“It feels good to have all of these people stop what they’re doing and get dressed up to come out and donate money to this charity for an amazing, amazing cause,” Riri said. “They want to change lives and it feels special.”
