The Harvard University Humanitarian of the Year recipient’s black-tie affair will raise money to support her Clara Lionel Foundation.
“New York always offers the perfect backdrop for an amazing event, which is why I am thrilled to have the Diamond Ball there,” RiRi said in an official statement.
She added, “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!”
Rihanna created the Clara Lionel Foundation in 2012 to support and develop world-class educational programs in her home country of Barbados, and other countries.
