Gwen Stefani promised back in June 2018 she’d donate a portion of every ticket sold for her “Just A Girl” show in Vegas to charity – and she’s kept her word.
The global superstar recently delivered a $185,000 check to the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation, a Las Vegas based nonprofit that provides medical treatment to children battling cancer and other life-threatening conditions.
And of course, she did it in person, with one of those ginormous cheques:
According to a release from Live Nation, Gwen’s donation has allowed the foundation to expand their lab capabilities to provide necessary testing for their fragile patients.
She’s also been involved with the nonprofit on a number of occasions, visiting patients, inviting them to her shows and helping the foundation move into a new building. In 2019, she was even given the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation Philanthropist of the Year Award in recognition of her kindness.
“To actually be able to help children, it’s just something I never thought I’d be able to do, and through music, here I am. It’s just incredible,” she said in a video message at the time.
Helping kids w/complex medical conditions was not something Gwen Stefani ever thought she’d be able to do. But then came her Las Vegas residency, her introduction to the #Vegas community, and ultimately learning about Cure 4 The Kids Foundation. You are a part of us Gwen.💞 pic.twitter.com/ru4FnnOKp5

Gwen’s residency was supposed to end in 2020 but, you know, COVID and all changed a lot of plans. So her final performance is coming up this weekend on November 6.
