Rihanna’s Donates $25K To The LAPD Cadet Program
After accidentally breaking the cell phone of Los Angeles Police Commission President Steve Soboroff during the Clippers and OKC game Rihanna managed to turn the unfortunate situation into a profitable charitable event.
YBF reports that according to TakePart Rihanna graciously offered to autograph the phone for an eBay auction to raise funds for the LAPD Cadet program and officers who’ve fallen in the line of duty. Also, she generously wrote a check for $25K.
Bidding for the phone starts at $250 with half of the winning bid money going to the cadets, and the other half earmarked for the Los Angeles Police Memorial Foundation to support the families of fallen officers.
