Ahead Of Her Final Residency Show, Gwen Stefani Donates $185,000 To Las Vegas Childhood Cancer Charity
If Gwen Stefani was a rich girl ... she would spread the wealth!
The singer has donated $185,000 to the Las Vegas children's charity Cure 4 The Kids Foundation as she prepares to wrap up her Planet Hollywood residency in the city, with her final concert occurring on Saturday, November 6.
When her Just A Girl show kicked off in 2018, The Voice alum pledged to donate $1 from every ticket sold to the nonprofit, a gesture the organization couldn't be more grateful for.
"#ThankYou Gwen for your unwavering support of C4K in our fight against #ChildhoodCancer," they wrote on social media, showing the star holding up a giant check.
Since joining forces with the nonprofit, the mom-of-three has visited their medical center on more than one occasion, and they even decorated a patient room in her honor.
Plus, in 2019, the "Sweet Escape" crooner was given the foundation's Philanthropist of the Year Award.
"Cure 4 The Kids, that has just been so inspiring. To actually be able to help children is just something I never thought I’d be able to do, and through music here I am," she stated at the time. "It’s just incredible. It’s easy, I just get up on stage and do my thing, and cut to, you know, we’re changing people’s lives, so that’s pretty crazy."
C4TK is currently Nevada's only childhood cancer treatment center and facility for pediatric catastrophic diseases. It was created in 2007 to bring about "a new kind of healthcare facility; one that blended the best of what corporate healthcare, education and research has to offer with the generosity, thoughtfulness, and spirit of charity."
"This hybrid model allows us to function like a traditional professional healthcare entity in terms of clinical outcomes, yet also allows us to be deeply human in our interactions with patients and their families," the nonprofit explains on their website. "Our focus is being a nationally recognized center of excellence with a regional focus that equips kids and their families to fight diseases, where no kid gets turned away."
