The Annual Night Before the Oscars is a night that celebrates the entertainment industry's Academy Awards® nominees and presenters along with some of Hollywood's biggest stars and influencers, while raising money and awareness for MPTF. Held at the historic Beverly Hills Hotel, this annual benefit raises funds to help provide health and social services to more than 150,000 people each year in MPTF's mission of taking care of our own.

"The Night Before has now raised over $60 million over the past 12-years for the charitable programs and services for the MPTF and I am so grateful to our corporate sponsors and our industry for responding in such a generous way," stated Chairman of the MPTF Foundation, Jeffrey Katzenberg.

The 2014 host committee included a lineup of the industry’s most elite talent, including Amy Adams and Darren Le Gallo, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, Tanya Haden Black and Jack Black, Sandra Bullock, Luciana and Matt Damon, Viola Davis and Julius Tennon, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Camila and Matthew McConaughey, Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith, and Octavia Spencer.

This year’s generous presenting sponsors included Delta Air Lines, Dodge, L’Oreal, Relativity, Target and The Hollywood Reporter.
