    Good music x good celebs x good cause!

    Jimmy Kimmel is set to host the first annual Diamond Ball, a black tie fundraising event benefiting the Clara Lionel Foundation (CLF) taking place on December 11 at The Vineyard in Beverly Hills. In addition, special guest Brad Pitt will introduce Rihanna's orchestra performance.

    Founded in 2012 by Rihanna in honor of her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Brathwaite, CLF works to improve the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts and culture.

    "It is such an honor to have Jimmy Kimmel host this event. There is no one more hilarious to make the first annual Diamond Ball an incredible night. I'm blessed by his support," said Rihanna. She furthered, "Brad Pitt is not only a phenomenal talent, but I admire him and am inspired by his philanthropic work."

    The Diamond Ball will host approximately 600 guests, ranging from entertainment and business executives to celebrities and philanthropists, at The Vineyard, a private 157-acre enclave in Beverly Hills. Table and ticket packages will include dinner, a live auction and very special, intimate performance by Rihanna, who will be accompanied by a live orchestra.

    Oooh!! That sounds amazing!

    What can you do to help support Rihanna's foundation, since the majority of you can't afford a ticket or table?
