Evening Before 2014

The Evening Before the Primetime Emmy® Awards is a night that celebrates the entertainment industry’s top talent in the television community, while raising money and awareness for MPTF, an organization that has been taking care of our own more than 90 years. This exclusive event is set under the stars to make for a casual, stress-free atmosphere, and includes food and hors d’oeuvres prepared by Savore.

“This will be a relaxed and fun night where everyone is a winner and the spirit of the party is one of community celebration, not only the Emmy nominations but the idea of giving back to take care of those less fortunate in the entertainment community. MPTF has been taking care of the entertainment industry for almost a century; tonight is about helping MPTF continue to be a safety net for countless entertainment industry professionals and their families.”
