Gwen Stefani Donates $185,000 to Children’s Charity
Stefani’s Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood’s Zappos Theater is ending this month after more than three years. People reports that on October 23, Stefani presented Cure 4 the Kids Foundation with a check for $185,000. She had previously vowed to donate $1 from each ticket sold, and this is the result of that.
Cure 4 the Kids is a nonprofit organization that works toward cures and prevention for childhood illnesses such as cancer. “We are the community leader in the research and treatment of childhood cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases,” reads the charity’s website.
The organization holds a special place in Stefani’s heart, as People reports that her donations helped the charity move into a new building. She was given the Cure 4 The Kids Foundation Philanthropist of the Year Award in 2019, and the foundation even has an exam room themed to her.
Stefani posted a photo on Instagram in which she presents a giant check to representatives for the charity. She thanked fans for helping to donate $185,000 through ticket sales, writing, “Your continuous support means so much to me and the organization.”
Stefani’s ‘Just a Girl’ Residency Is Coming to an End
Stefani was originally going to end her Just a Girl Las Vegas residency in 2020, but she had to postpone the final shows due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The last show will now take place this Saturday, November 6. When it’s over, Stefani will have performed the show almost 60 times.
The same night Stefani presented Cure 4 the Kids with their check, the singer’s husband Blake Shelton appeared on stage with her to perform their song “Nobody But You.” She even gave his butt a squeeze as he left the stage afterward.
