Jay-Z Plans Carnival-Themed Fundraiser

With school back in session, Jay-Z is planning a lavish fundraising event later this month for his Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation.

According to New York’s Daily News, Jay will throw a benefit at Pier 54 in Manhattan on September 29 in an effort to raise funds for youth that cannot afford to go to college.

The event will have a carnival theme with many of the classic rides like the Sizzler and the Zipper as well as gourmet food provided by Momofuku Milk Bar and the Spotted Pig.

With the $1,000 entry fee guests will also have the chance to win prizes, like Nets tickets, Gibson guitars and Hublot Watches.
