Jay Z is donating the use of his 40/40 Club to help raise funds for the people in Puerto Rico.
Jay-Z is lending out the Manhattan location Wednesday for the disaster relief and fundraiser for Hurricane Maria victims. In addition to the free club space, Jay comped bottles of D’Usse (Jay Z’s cognac) for the first hour, even throwing in free models to compliment the guest.
The invite for the 40/40 event, which is being organized by the Puerto Rican Family Institute and Big & Little Skills Academy, asks people to bring school supplies, flashlights, solar lamps and batteries. A plane will be sending the supplies from the event Thursday. In a separate effort TIDAL also is reportedly planning to fly 200,000 lbs. of supplies to the wrecked island on another plane.
I commend people like Jay-Z, DJ Khaled and all other celebrities who are helping with relief efforts since the man with the orange face takes the tragedy in Puerto Rico as a joke.
