Throughout her time performing at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, $1 of every ticket purchased to Britney’s headlining Las Vegas show, “Britney: Piece of Me,” has been donated to the NCCF as part of her partnership with the organization. With this donation, Britney will have reached halfway to her goal of raising $1 million for NCCF to build its new permanent facility.
Additionally, Britney Spears will host the Britney Spears Piece of Me Charity Ride on Thursday, Oct. 27 at XCYCLE, located in Boca Park, 750 S. Rampart Boulevard., Las Vegas, Nevada, 89145. This charity ride, with all proceeds benefitting NCCF, will offer participants an exclusive seat to ride with their favorite pop star during a specially choreographed class featuring songs hand-picked by Britney herself.
The NCCF is a local non-profit organization providing services in Southern Nevada since 1993, whose goal is to improve the quality of life for critically ill children and their families living in the community.
Since opening in Dec. 2013, Britney: Piece of Me has received rave reviews from both critics and fans alike, with the show being voted the “Best Overall Show” and “Best Bachelorette Party” by readers of the Las Vegas Review-Journal in 2015. The record-setting show is sold out on a regular basis, and has been seen by over 500,000 guests.
