LL Cool J
co-hosted a charity event over the weekend to benefit the American Cancer Society
, applying the signature swagger found in his music to furthering cancer research.
"We're going to raise a lot of money for cancer awareness, give some to the American Cancer Society and hopefully make a big difference," said LL, who shared hosting duties with his wife, Simone I. Smith -- a cancer survivor.
Guests were invited to purchase pieces from Simone's new jewelry collection, Simone I. Smith, while all the proceeds went to charity.
