Helping Crews In The Entertainment Industry Who Need Immediate Support

MPTF’s fundraising telethon for crew members in need returned for its second time, airing live on KTLA (Channel 5 in Los Angeles) on December 9, 2023. Yvette Nicole Brown and Tom Bergeron returned as hosts and served as two of the producers for this uplifting, entertaining evening of stories, songs, and celebrities all to raise emergency relief funds for workers in need. KTLA’s Dayna Devon hosted our celebrity lounge where live donors could spend time virtually during the show. MPTF’s first telethon last December received an LA Area Emmy® nomination and raised over $850K to provide for the entertainment community’s most vulnerable community members. Now the need is even more urgent with tens of thousands of industry workers impacted by the two strikes in 2023, which will have major ramifications well into next year.
