DJ Irie is teaming up with Rick Ross and Miami hotspot Rockwell nightclub to help raise money for those in the Bahamas who have been affected by Hurricane Dorian, an insider told Page Six.
“Mixing partying and charity is always a great idea,” DJ Irie told Page Six. “People work hard and are going through all types of things in their lives and partying can be a great outlet for people to enjoy themselves and bring a sense of balance to their lives. People feel good when they party so when you add in the charitable component it’s like you can feel good whilst doing good and what’s better than that?”
Irie added that the hurricane’s devastation is personal for him.
“For many of us South Florida residents, the Bahamas has been our go-to getaway spot for as long as we can remember,” he said. “It goes a step further for me as I perform 20 to 30 shows per year there on average. So to work there, play there and enjoy all that is beautiful in the Bahamas on a regular basis, then we need to be there for them in times of disaster as well.”
We hear that through Wednesday, all donor proceeds will be donated to the Irie Foundation.
Additionally, Rick Ross will be performing live on Monday at Rockwell for their Party for a Cause bash where the club will donate a percentage of each bottle of Belaire Rosé sold to hurricane relief efforts.
“At the end of the day it’s not about how much you can donate. It’s about being able and willing,” Rockwell group co-owner Milo Danilovic told us. “Time, money, recourses, goods … every little bit counts. Getting involved with a disaster relief organization, especially during the immediate aftermath of disasters like Hurricane Dorian, is important especially with funding urgent recovery efforts that are desperately needed at this time.”
