Each year, a star-studded host committee, Academy Awards® nominees and presenters, along with some of the most powerful industry influencers come together for the annual Night Before party to benefit MPTF. Funds raised during the evening will be used to support MPTF in providing social services, financial assistance, a renowned retirement community and innovative programs for seniors and those who care for them. The organization impacts thousands of people each year who have committed their lives to a career in entertainment.

The 2019 Host Committee included a lineup of the industry’s most elite talent, including Amy Adams & Darren Le Gallo, Mahershala Ali, Tanya Haden Black & Jack Black, Kate Capshaw & Steven Spielberg, Amal & George Clooney, Glenn Close, Giada Colagrande & Willem Dafoe, Bradley Cooper, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Lady Gaga, Allison Janney, Regina King, Rami Malek, Viggo Mortensen, Jada Pinkett Smith & Will Smith, Octavia Spencer, Rachel Weisz, Rita Wilson & Tom Hanks, Reese Witherspoon & Jim Toth, and Constance Wu.

 

“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.”

Jeffrey Katzenberg

Chairman of the MPTF Foundation
