Rihanna has recently been hard at work on a fundraiser event held by Robinson Cano, where she made an appearance together with Jay-Z. The two are actually in the main spotlight for the event, which is a high-profile fundraiser in the first place and has attracted a lot of attention so far. Robinson Cano is hopeful to gather various important names in one place, and it looks like he’ll be successful in his attempt.
On Monday, he made an announcement through his agency Roc Nation Sports that Jay-Z and Rihanna will be assisting him by headlining the event at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, scheduled for June 3. The event is actually part of “Canoche, a Night with Robinson Cano & Friends”, a benefit for the RC22 foundation ran by Cano himself. The foundation is putting some serious effort into trying to give underprivileged children a better shot at life, and improving their current conditions, as well as improving the overall state of their communities.
The organization works both locally and globally, and it’s had great success so far, with its current task being the construction of its first school in the hometown of Robinson Cano in San Pedro De Macoris. The school will be aimed at children aged 3-8, and so far the project has reportedly been going great. Of course, it all comes down to proper funding, which is what makes events like this one so important.
With that in mind, it’s always great to see high-profile names like Jay-Z and Rihanna deciding to participate, and it’s shaping up to be an exciting night for everyone involved so far. The event will also benefit the Seattle Children’s Hospital and the Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic, as well as various non-profit organizations and charity foundations.
Other important names confirmed as attending include Felix Hernandez, Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager. CC Sabathia, who previously played together with Cano, will likely also make an appearance, and there will also be a performance by the Garfield High School symphony orchestra.
At the same time, despite involving herself with charity work like that, Rihanna has still been hard on the partying side, as she was recently spotted covering her eyes with a pair of stylish sunglasses after a night partying with Drake, who she previously had a relationship with.
It looks like the two of them managed to have a great time together, as Rihanna needed some protection from the sunlight the next day, and was seen wearing the pair of sunglasses all around New York City. She left her apartment and immediately got into a car service, trying to maintain a low profile.
