Planet Hollywood headliner Britney Spears invited children of Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation and NCCF President and CEO Jeffrey Gordon backstage Saturday night to present the foundation with a check for $120,000.

In the last year, $1 of every ticket purchased to Spears’ resident show “Britney: Piece of Me” at Axis at Planet Hollywood has been donated to NCCF as part of the award-winning singer-songwriter’s partnership with the organization.

NCCF is a local nonprofit providing services in Southern Nevada since 1993 whose goal is to improve the quality of life for critically ill children and their families.

Spears recently announced that she has extended “Britney: Piece of Me” at Axis for two more years through December 2017.

Since opening in December 2013, “Britney: Piece of Me” has received rave reviews from critics and fans, with the show being voted “Best Overall Show” and “Best Bachelorette Party” this year.
