Pop singer Britney Spears had a big weekend with rapper G-Eazy joining her on stage Friday night and a $200,000 donation to the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation at her headlining show, “Britney: Piece of Me” at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas.
On Friday, the “Me, Myself & I” songwriter joined Britney on stage to perform their hit-single, “Make Me…” The Billboard Hot 100 song is featured on the pop icon’s ninth studio album, “Glory,” which has been receiving rave reviews from critics and fans alike.
Since Britney started her run at Planet Hollywood Resort, celebrities such as Beyoncé, Jay Z, Lady Gaga, Anna Kendrick, Nick Jonas, Miley Cyrus, Chloë Grace Moretz and Calvin Harris have been seen at the show. Half a million fans have been through the doors.
Before her show, Britney invited children serviced by the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation (NCCF), as well as NCCF President and CEO Jeffrey Gordon, backstage in order to present the foundation with a check for $200,000.
Throughout her time performing at Planet Hollywood Resort, $1 of every ticket purchased has been donated to the NCCF as part of her partnership with the organization. With this donation, Britney will have reached halfway to her goal of raising $1 million for NCCF to build its new permanent facility.
Additionally, Britney Spears will host the Britney Spears Piece of Me Charity Ride on Thursday, Oct. 27, at XCYCLE, located in Boca Park, 750 S. Rampart Blvd. This charity ride, with all proceeds benefitting NCCF, will offer participants an exclusive seat to ride with their favorite pop star during a specially choreographed class featuring songs hand-picked by Britney herself.
The NCCF is a local non-profit organization providing services in Southern Nevada since 1993, whose goal is to improve the quality of life for critically ill children and their families living in the community.
Britney Spears returned to the stage this past Wednesday. The international megastar performs through Nov. 19 and will return Jan. 11, 2017.
