ABC/Randy HolmesJAY-Z will be joined by Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Meek Mill and, of course, his wife Beyoncé for the inaugural Shawn Carter Foundation Gala Weekend.
Hova will host the two-day event November 15 and 16 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Keys will perform, and there will also be a High Roller Blackjack Tournament with a 100K buy-in, with a chance to win $500,000.
“Equipping our youth with the tools to succeed will always be a priority for me and my family,” JAY-Z tells Billboard. “I’m looking forward to continuing that mission at this year’s Shawn Carter Foundation Gala Weekend, where we’ll celebrate our scholars and continue to support young people in a meaningful way.”
Proceeds from the gala will benefit the foundation’s scholarship fund, college prep workshops, and other community goodwill programs.
JAY launched the Shawn Carter Foundation in 2003 with his mother, Gloria Carter. Its mission is to “help individuals facing social-economic hardships further their education at institutions of higher learning.”
