Rihanna Announces ‘Diamond Ball’ to Support Charity



Rihanna will host her first “Diamond Ball” on Dec. 11 to benefit her foundation that promotes education and arts globally.

The Pop superstar announced Thursday that she would hold the black tie event at The Vineyard in Beverly Hills, California. The singer founded the Clara Lionel Foundation in 2012, named after her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.

“There is truly nothing I’m more proud of and we’ve just gotten started,” said RiRi.

The Diamond Ball will host around 600 guests, including celebrities. Attendees will be announced at a later date.

Rihanna says the first annual event will be “elegant and inspirational.”
