A heart of gold.
It's pretty rare for Britney Spears to make a public appearance these days, but she made a special exception for the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation on Saturday (Nov. 4) when the pop star attended the grand opening of the organization's Britney Spears Campus.
Through a portion of Piece Of Me ticket sales, the princess of pop donated one million dollars to the foundation.
“I’m just really excited to be standing here for our new NCCF campus,” the Glory singer said before the ceremonial ribbon cutting, People reports. “We started fundraising in 2014 and we’ve raised $1 million to build this amazing facility to support the kids and the families everywhere. I’m so thankful to everyone for their generosity in making this a reality and making this happen.”
“We can’t thank Britney enough being able to do this. Our dream for many, many years has been to be able to have one one building that all of our 45 programs can come together in one place. And that we are able to to today,” NCCF CEO Jeff Gordon said. “And that doesn’t happen without someone like Britney Spears.”
He added: “We saw a side of Britney Spears that so many people maybe don’t have the opportunity to see. You realize what a special person Britney is. She’s an incredible performer, we know all that, but she does care and the more we’ve gotten to know her, the more grateful we’ve become to her, and the kids have adored her.”
Clark County Commission Steve Sisolak had some extremely kind words about the singer as well. “Thirty-five days ago our community when through something that we will never forget. People around the world got to see a side of Vegas that they had never seen before. They saw the love that Las Vegas has,” he said. “Today is similar to that because until today people haven’t totally understood what Britney Spears has meant to this community. We’ve all seen her on stage, we’ve all seen her perform and what a phenomenal performer and entertainer she is, but what’s she’s doing today is another side of Britney that unfortunately most of us haven’t had the opportunity to see before."
