After two years of a throwing the successful event in Los Angeles, Rihanna will be relocating her annual Diamond Ball to New York. The singer revealed that the fundraising event will now be taking place at Cipriani Wall Street on September 14.
In 2015, the singer raised $3 Million to support her Clara Lionel Foundation named after her grandparents and created to help underprivileged communities. “New York always offers the perfect backdrop for an amazing event, which is why I am thrilled to have Diamond Ball there,” the singer stated. The singer and her foundation were recently recognized by the Harvard Foundation when she was honored with the Humanitarian of the Year award.
“It’s a great way to celebrate the Clara Lionel Foundation’s accomplishments as well as bring awareness to our mission globally,” Rihanna commented. “I know it’ll be a night to remember!”
