Stepping up to do their part for cancer research, Nelly, Solange Knowles, and Ashanti were among the celebs on hand for this year’s Angel Ball in New York City on Monday (October 22).

Showing off their impeccable beauty, Solange rocked the red carpet in a beautiful white frock, while Ashanti wowed in a flowing blush-colored gown.  Bringing his own style to the star-studded affair, Nelly sported a perfectly fitted suit, which he accompanied with aviator sunglasses and diamond stud earrings.

The benefit, which is the signature fundraising event of Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation, honors those who have made significant humanitarian and philanthropic contributions to help support cancer research.

Held at Cipriani Wall Street, event guests enjoyed fabulous food and performances by Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, and DJ Cassidy.

According to the organization’s website, “The purpose of Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research is to encourage the development of more effective therapies for patients with leukemia, lymphoma and related cancers.”
