Beyonce and Jay Z Raised $6 Million For Cancer Research
When they aren’t touring, Beyoncé and Jay Z keep busy with good deeds. Earlier this year, Bey donated to historically black colleges and she isn’t slowing down. She and her hubby recently helped raise $6 million for cancer research with the California-based non-profit, City of Hope.
After wrapping up their “On the Run II” tour, the power couple hosted a fundraising gala through the organization with guests like Kelly Rowland, Tiffant Haddish, Dr. Dre, Usher, Wiz Khalifa and Quincy Jones in attendance. The 1.200 guests were also treated to a performance from Beyoncé as well.
“We find partners in the honorees and the honorees help arrange the talent,” City Of Hope CEO Robert Stone told Forbes about snagging Jay and Bey for the event.” So Jon Platt is a tremendous partner and compassionate and passionate person who’s joined this fight all in. And Jon’s the one who made the call to Beyonce and Jay-Z, who said yes immediately.”
Bey makes sure she also gives back to her hometown of Houston. She is continuing to provide relief to help with recovery after Hurricane Harvey.
