A star-studded host committee, Academy Awards® nominees and presenters, along with some of the most powerful industry influencers will come together on February 27th, 2016 for the 14th annual Night Before party to benefit MPTF. Funds raised during the now-legendary 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 annual event raised $5.2 million in 2015, totaling just over $65 million in the event’s history.

“On Oscar night, we celebrate the creative excellence of our industry, while the Night Before demonstrates the deep generosity and compassion of our community,” says Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation and Chairman of the MPTF Foundation. "We're truly grateful for the ongoing support that enables MPTF to provide its invaluable services to those in need."

The 2015 host committee included a lineup of the industry’s most elite talent, including Jennifer Aniston & Justin Theroux, Tanya Haden Black & Jack Black, Kate Capshaw & Steven Spielberg, Jessica Chastain, George Clooney, Bradley Cooper, Tom Cruise, Viola Davis & Julius Tennon, Jenna Dewan-Tatum & Channing Tatum, Cameron Diaz & Benji Madden, Susan Downey & Robert Downey Jr., Deborra-Lee Furness & Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sophie Hunter & Benedict Cumberbatch, Scarlett Johansson & Romain Dauriac, Hannah & Eddie Redmayne, Jada Pinkett Smith & Will Smith, Octavia Spencer, Emma Stone, Christine Taylor & Ben Stiller, Pauletta & Denzel Washington, Rita Wilson & Tom Hanks, and Reese Witherspoon & Jim Toth.

This year’s generous presenting sponsors included Chrysler, Delta Air Lines, L’Oreal, Master Card in support of Stand Up To Cancer, Target, and The Hollywood Reporter.
