The Angel Ball is an annual charity event hosted by Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation for Cancer Research. The Ball would have been Kim’s first public appearance since she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris this past October.
This year’s black-tie dinner honored late family member Robert Kardashian, and present were Khloe, Kourtney, and mother Kris Jenner. During the ceremony, Kanye’s song “Only One” played over clips of Robert through the years. The Kardashian sisters and mom took to the stage to accept the award on Robert’s behalf. “That video was a little bit of a tough act to follow,” said Jenner in her speech. “[The Angel Ball] is one of the most rewarding things we do on an annual basis… I just want to say when I met Robert Kardashian, I was 17 years old. He kind of raised me and we had four kids together.… One of the things he used to teach me and then passed down to our children was about philanthropy and about giving and about doing it diligently, constantly, joyfully and generously. He taught me and them that no matter what you do in life and what you make, you give back. And you do it without saying a word because that’s what the Bible said. And we did.”
After her emotional speech, Jenner and her daughters presented the Foundation with a $250,000 check. “We just wanted to do a little something that hopefully will be a start of…a continuous donation,” concluded the matriarch.
