This year’s Diamond Ball will be hosted by Issa Rae and Childish Gambino is performing during the event. Rae is famous for her HBO show Insecure, season 3 just started. Childish Gambino a.k.a. Donald Glover is famous for his rap career and Atlanta.
“Issa Rae and Childish Gambino were the dream duo for the fourth annual Diamond Ball and they’re coming!!!” Rihanna writes in a press release. “We are honored and grateful to have them help us celebrate the Clara Lionel Foundation this year.”
Rihanna’s Diamond Ball is always a star-studded event. Last year’s charity ball was hosted by comedian Dave Chappelle, while Kendrick Lamar and Calvin Harris performed. Barack Obama also gave a message via video. The event raised $840,000 thanks to items that were auctioned off from Rihanna, Jay-Z and more.
This year’s Diamond Ball is on September 13 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans will be receiving the Diamond Ball Award for humanitarian work this year.
Unlike previous years fans can win tickets to go to the event. Rihanna’s makeup line Fenty Beauty and the Clara Lionel Foundation are teaming up for the ball. Fenty Beauty dropped The Killawatt Highlight Diamond Ball-Out for The Diamond Ball. All of the proceeds made from the highlighter will be going to the Clara Lionel Foundation.
On top of all the proceeds going to the charity, with every purchase you will enter to win a trip to attend the Diamond Ball.
Every dollar you spend on your Diamond Ball highlighter counts as an entry. The highlighter costs $34, but you can make an extra donation when you purchase. So if you just buy the highlighter for $34 you will have entered the sweepstakes 34 times. If you pay for the highlighter then give a $10 donation you’ll have entered 44 times.
If you win you and a friend will be flown out to New York City and be put up in a 5-star hotel. You will get the walk the red carpet and have VIP seating during the Diamond Ball.
It doesn’t say you’ll meet Rihanna, but the chances of you meeting her are high. And you’ll have prime seating to see Rae and Childish Gambino, donate to charity and have a poppin’ highlight the entire time. Sounds like a win.
