(AllHipHop News) Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter will be hosting the inaugural Shawn Carter Foundation Gala Weekend at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The philanthropic event is scheduled for November 15 and 16.
Roc Nation representative Meek Mill is slated to take part in the invitation-only High Roller Blackjack Tournament on 11/15. The following day will feature 15-time Grammy winner Alicia Keys headlining a concert at the Black Tie Gala. Global superstars Beyoncé and Rihanna are expected to attend SCF Gala Weekend.
The Shawn Carter Foundation was founded by Jay-Z and his mother Gloria Carter in 2003. All proceeds from the Gala Weekend will benefit the foundation's scholarship fund, college prep workshops and bus tours, study abroad opportunities, and community goodwill programs for youth and families in need.
"Equipping our youth with the tools to succeed will always be a priority for me and my family. 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," states Jay-Z.
