JAY-Z’s 40/40 Club Hosts a Fundraiser for Puerto Rico
DateOctober 6, 2017
In the last month or so, many celebrities have stepped up to raise money and collect supplies following the aftermath of hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. This time, JAY-Z‘s 40/40 Club played host to a private fundraiser for Puerto Rico sponsored by the Puerto Rican Family Institute and the Big & Little Skills Academy. Attendees of the invite-only event will donate money or supplies for the island, where many residents don’t have access to electricity, gas, or fresh water.
Additionally, Tidal is accepting donations to fill a plane with 20,000 pounds of supplies for relief efforts. The streaming service will also be hosting a charity concert on October 17 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, featuring artists like DJ Khaled, Fat Joe, Vic Mensa, and Cardi B, among others.
