Jay-Z is donating use of his 40/40 Club and D’Usse cognac to help raise funds for Hurricane Maria victims in Puerto Rico.
We’ve learned Jay’s lending out his 40/40 Club Manhattan location Wednesday for Disaster Relief For Puerto Rico, a fundraiser for Hurricane Maria victims. In addition to the free space, comped bottles of D’Usse for the first hour — Jay’s cognac — will be flowing for anyone who donates items or money to relief efforts. D’Usse is even throwing in free models to serve the stuff.
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.
It’s always a plus to see those who are willing and able to step up and do their part to help others in need.
