Tweeps praised Jay Z for doing things differently. Although the invitations may seem expensive to many of us, that's small change considering his wealth.

The Shawn Carter Foundation is an initiative founded in 2003 by Gloria Carter and her son, Jay Z as a public charity. 

The foundation supports initiatives to empower youth and communities in need through the Foundation’s programs: scholarship fund, college prep and exposure, international exposure, professional development, scholar support and community & goodwill programs. 

On November 15-16, the foundation will host The Shawn Carter Foundation Gala Weekend at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. 

It will feature a Pre-Gala Dinner Cocktail Reception, dinner, auction, and a Post-Gala Benefit Concert, featuring a performance by 15X Grammy Award winning Icon- Alicia Keys. All proceeds raised during the Gala Dinner will  benefit The Shawn Carter Foundation.
