Recently, the teenage superstar attended the 22nd Annual “Taste for a Cure” event at the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel, on April 28, 2017, honoring Yael and Scooter Braun, who both received the Gil Nickel Humanitarian Award for their dedication to cancer research.
The event, hosted by Angela Basset, undertook the goal of raising funds for UCLA’s highest priority cancer research. Guests dined on and enjoyed an Epicurean delight that ranged from wine tastings to seasonal cuisines, while also enjoying a live auction and surprise performances from Ariana Grande and comedian Jerrod Carmichael.
