Drake is once again subscribing to God’s plan — throwing down big on roulette and giving back to the community just as much as he won … with none other than LeBron James!
Champagne Papi made a massive donation over the weekend, offering up a cool mil in Bitcoin to the LeBron James Family Foundation — which focuses on charitable efforts for underprivileged students, among other initiatives — and did so in partnership with Stake.com … an online gambling house that Drizzy uses early and often, and which facilitated this dough.
You see … Drake actually placed a massive bet recently on one of their online roulette tables — wagering a hefty sum on black 11 — and when it hit … the dude got paid out big time.
Part of that money is what was donated to the LBJ Foundation — and Bron Bron was actually on hand in Toronto Friday to usher in the gracious gesture, hitting up a fancy restaurant in the area called Harbour 60.

It wasn’t just these 2 patting each other on the back though — Drake had a huge surprise for a local high school basketball player named Michael (of Royal Crown Academy) who’s on his way to a college career. To send him off properly, Drake donated $100k to him and his mom.
Drake and co. actually captured that sweet moment on camera as well … and it was very reminiscent of when he was handing out cash to strangers a few years back — and just as emotional.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Cool story all around … and even better seeing how Drake turned gambling with Stake.com into a pay-it-forward play that benefited more people than just him. Class act, indeed.
