Los Angeles, California Benefiting the Clara Lionel Foundation
Supporting the quality of life globally in the areas of health, education, arts and culture
Thank you to our 2015 sponsors:
2014 Inaugural Diamond Ball
Last year Rihanna launched the first annual Diamond Ball, a black tie fundraiser to benefit Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF), which was founded in 2012 in honor of Rihanna’s grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite. CLF is dedicated to improving the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts, and culture.
We are happy to report that our inaugural event raised over $2,000,000 to support the Clara Braithwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine at Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in Barbados. CLF was able to donate new state-of-the-art equipment, which will improve the quality of treatment and techniques for patients.
The black tie event’s stunning Beverly Hills setting and Rihanna’s electrifying performance accompanied by a live orchestra made for an unforgettable evening. Jimmy Kimmel hosted the evening, which also featured Brad Pitt as a special guest. Celebrity attendees included Salma Hayek, Ellen Pompeo, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Big Sean, Ne-Yo and Fabulous, all who came out to show their support for the Clara Lionel Foundation.
On behalf of Rihanna and the Clara Lionel Foundation, we would like to thank everyone who attended and supported the fundraiser.
