The Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) founded by Robyn Rihanna Fenty, announced today that the third annual Diamond Ball will be held Thursday, September 14th, for the first time in New York City at Cipriani Wall Street. The foundation’s signature event, The Diamond Ball, which launched in 2014, raises money to support CLF’s trailblazing education, health and emergency response programs around the world.
“New York always offers the perfect backdrop for an amazing event, which is why I am thrilled to have the Diamond Ball there,” said Robyn Rihanna Fenty. “It’s a great way to celebrate the Clara Lionel Foundation’s accomplishments as well as bring awareness to our mission globally. I know it’ll be a night to remember!”
Chopard is the event’s first presenting partner. Past Diamond Balls featured live performances by Rihanna and Lionel Richie as well as hosts and speakers like Kevin Hart and Brad Pitt. The gala unites hundreds of guests in a call to action to fight against inequality, injustice and poverty.
The Clara Lionel Foundation funds innovative global education projects and scholarships, healthcare and emergency response programs and local micro grants. Rihanna received the 2017 Humanitarian of The Year Award by The Harvard Foundation, recognizing her longtime commitment to philanthropy and the burgeoning impact of CLF’s initiatives.
