Wow, Beyoncé and Flint, Michigan are eternally linked. Weird, right?

Living up to her promise to help Flint as its residents deal with the city’s lead-tainted water supply, Beyoncé has presented the United Way of Genesee County with a check for $82,234. DANG.

Funds were raised by members of the Beyhive who chose to contribute to the cause while purchasing tickets to see Beyonce perform live, and the news couldn’t have come at a better time: the Formation World Tour stops at Ford Field TODAY. Detroit is one of three cities on the tour featuring a “signature charity event” component, and I’m sure everyone felt good when that sweet cash was handed over.

In addition to fundraising, 14 Detroit-area high school students were selected to receive tickets to the show and “college gifts” to assist with their educational expenses.

Beyonce, if anyone deserves a key to the city, you do (especially now that the water’s going to be cleaner).
