The annual Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) Blue Diamond Gala returns to Dodger Stadium on Thursday, June 16, with an exclusive concert featuring global superstar Jennifer Lopez. Tickets and sponsorships are now on sale at: www.dodgers.com/gala.

 The gala, deemed ‘The Party For LA’, is presented by the Los Angeles Dodgers Ownership Group, including Mark Walter, Earvin “Magic” Johnson and Billie Jean King. The evening will kick off with a star-studded blue carpet and pre-show dinner party with a DJ set by the legendary, award-winning D-Nice, followed by an exclusive concert headlined by global superstar Jennifer Lopez. In addition to the live performances, special guests will include Dodgers players, alumni and coaches in addition to other celebrities. Proceeds from the evening will benefit LADF and the organization’s various community programs and initiatives aimed at improving education, health care, homelessness and social justice for all Angelenos.

 

“We are thrilled to announce the return of the sixth annual Blue Diamond Gala, the party for Los Angeles, celebrating and raising funds for the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation and our positive impact on the Los Angeles community,” said Mark Walter, Los Angeles Dodgers Owner and LADF Chairman of the Board. “We are truly honored to have an artist of Jennifer Lopez’s caliber performing at this year’s gala.”

 

“This is an exciting time for our organization, having learned a great deal during the pandemic on how to best serve Angelenos and how to sustain, create capacity and scale our work in communities who need us most,” said Nichol Whiteman, LADF CEO. “The return of the gala is a celebration of heroes, our partners and those we serve, who experienced so many highs and lows the last two years. They are the reason we are bigger than baseball.”

 

Since its inception, LADF has invested over $40 million into the Los Angeles community in the form of direct programs and grants to nonprofits. Through contributions from individuals, foundations and corporate partners, LADF is positively impacting millions of children and families experiencing homelessness, education disparities, health care challenges and play inequities. On the heels of the pandemic, LADF continues to provide its flagship youth development program, Dodgers Dreamteam, to 12,000 youth annually by providing significant health and education resources and services to level the socio-economic playing field and by building 58 baseball and softball fields in underserved communities that over 400,000 youth can access. Additionally, the Foundation offers a Science of Baseball curriculum to teachers in local school districts, provides middle and high school students opportunities in its College and Career Accelerator, partners with local social justice organizations to amplify the voices of Black and Brown leaders and organizations in LA, and funds nearly 100 nonprofits annually. With an ongoing concentration on food insecurity, exacerbated by the pandemic, LADF has made over four million meals available to Los Angeles families. Proceeds from the Blue Diamond Gala will support the continuation and scaling of this important work. 

 Previous Blue Diamond Gala performers include Bruno Mars, Maroon 5, Earth Wind & Fire, Fleetwood Mac and John Legend.
