Rihanna Presents 2nd Annual Diamond Ball

  /  12.11.2015

Rihanna shined bright last night at her 2nd annual Diamond Ball, which took place at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, Calif.

The charity event, held in honor of her Clara Lionel Foundation, featured a performance from Lionel Richie and was hosted by comedian Kevin Hart, who helped auction off several items including Bono’s electric guitar to benefit the non-profit.

“I’m personally donating $50,000 out of the Kevin Hart back pocket,” said Hart. The auction intended to raise at least $2 million, the amount reached last year, and managed to surpass its goal and hit the $3 million mark.

Rihanna, donning a satin Dior gown, was the belle of the ball, which drew special guests including Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Zendaya, Justine Skye, Kylie Jenner, and Tyga, as well as Rihanna’s family. Attendees were given cutouts of RiRi’s face at the $3,000 per ticket fete.

“It’s overwhelming to see so many of the people that I care about come together to support a cause that is near and dear to my heart,” she told PEOPLE a few days before the event.

Rihanna, whose eighth album ANTI is still without a release date, launched the Clara Lionel Foundation in honor of her grandparents in 2012. The goal of the charity is to “improve the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts and culture,” according to its site.
