Last week, Chance the Rapper announced that he'd be celebrating his 24th birthday with a party in which the proceeds would go to charity. Going down at Chicago's Studio Paris nightclub on Sunday (April 16), Ludacris and T-Pain showed up as surprise guests, performing their own respective hits, but now we know just how much was raised for Social Works, the non-profit organization that Chance co-founded.

According to Billboard, with tickets reportedly sold for $100 to $2,500, Chance raised over $100,000 for his charity.

Studio Paris' managing partner R.J. Melman told Page Six, "The night was a huge success with Chance’s ability to rally the community to donate for a great cause. We are proud to play a part in it and are honored to have been chosen by Chance as the place to throw his party."
