Rihanna's third annual charity event, the Diamond Ball, is shaping up to be another memorable night. Dave Chappelle will host with Kendrick Lamar and Calvin Harris both performing live. Now, thanks to a new fundraising effort, fans who donate just $1 are in with the chance of making it to the New York party too.
The Dollar Campaign is a fundraising effort from Rihanna aimed at supporting her ongoing campaign to improve the education of young people in some of the world's most impoverished areas. One lucky donator will win two tickets to this year's black-tie dinner. The winner will be flown to New York for the night and put up in a hotel prior to the event at Manahattan's Cipriani Wall Street. The more you donate, the more chances you have of winning the coveted prize.
A message on Rihanna's Clara Lionel Foundation website explains that a one dollar donation could provide one brick to help build a school in Malawi. $20, the Foundation notes, could support a girl's schooling for a month.
Jimmy Kimmel hosted the first Diamond Ball in 2014, with special guest Brad Pitt and a performance from Rihanna herself. In 2015, Kevin Hart was the evening's host and Lionel Richie performed.
