Night Before the Oscars®

People from all areas of show business lend their skills, passion, and most importantly, their talents to a wide variety of MPTF fundraising efforts. No other organization has the ability to bring together the brightest stars from film and television to create unique events that raise money and awareness to benefit the MPTF mission.

A star-studded host committee, Academy Awards® nominees and presenters, along with some of the most powerful industry influencers came together on March 3rd, 2018 for the 16th 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 million in 2018, totaling just over $80 million in the event’s history.

“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,” said Jeffrey Katzenberg, Chairman of the MPTF Foundation.

The 2018 host committee included a lineup of the industry’s most elite talent, including Amy Adams & Darren Le Gallo, Tanya Haden Black & Jack Black, Mary J. Blige, Kate Capshaw & Steven Spielberg, Jessica Chastain, Tom Cruise, Leonardo DiCaprio, Gal Gadot & Jaron Varsano, Greta Gerwig, Allison Janney, Sharon & Richard Jenkins, Brie Larson, Margot Robbie & Tom Ackerley, Sam Rockwell, Saoirse Ronan, Jada Pinkett Smith & Will Smith, Octavia Spencer, Meryl Streep, Pauletta & Denzel Washington, Rita Wilson & Tom Hanks, and Reese Witherspoon & Jim Toth.

This year’s generous presenting sponsors included Delta Air Lines, Ford Motor Company, L’Oréal, Target, The Hollywood Reporter, and YouTube.
