Each year, a star-studded host committee, Academy Awards® nominees and presenters, along with some of the most powerful industry influencers come together for MPTF’s annual Night Before benefit. Funds raised are used to further our mission of supporting working and retired members of the entertainment community with a safety net of health and social services including temporary financial assistance, residential living, and referrals to community resources.
The 2020 Host Committee included a lineup of the industry’s most elite talent, including Amy Adams & Darren Le Gallo, Antonio Banderas, Tanya Haden Black & Jack Black, Kate Capshaw & Steven Spielberg, Laura Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio, Cynthia Erivo, Stella & Sir Anthony Hopkins, Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Lopez, Rami Malek, Jonathan Pryce, Margot Robbie, Octavia Spencer, Charlize Theron, Rita Wilson & Tom Hanks, and Renée Zellweger.
“I am so grateful for the generosity of the Presenting Sponsors and donors for making the ‘Night Before’ an amazing evening every year. It is not only the largest fundraiser each year for the MPTF, having raised over $80m over the sixteen years, but it is also the perfect way to bring the industry together in the spirit of a community that truly takes care of its own. This spirit translates into thousands of industry workers at all levels and at all ages being helped whenever a momentary crisis or need happens in their lives. This safety net of services is needed now more than ever before and we all must play our part to ensure the MPTF remains vital.”
