The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) announced today that comedy icons Arsenio Hall and George Lopez will co-host its fourth annual Blue Diamond Gala Monday, June 11, at Dodger Stadium.
The evening will kick off with a star-studded blue carpet and pre-show dinner party followed by two hours of entertainment and post-show food trucks. Multi-award winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter John Legend will headline the show — all to celebrate the foundation’s impactful work.
LADF has invested more than $21 million into the Los Angeles community in the form of direct programs and grants to local organizations.
Proceeds from the Blue Diamond Gala will support the expansion of its direct programs — Dodgers Dreamfields and Dodger RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities) — and help LADF reach its goal of building 50 baseball fields in underserved communities.
“The Blue Diamond Gala is one of the most exciting nights of the year, and we know that Arsenio and George will make it even more memorable,” said Mark Walter, Dodger owner and chairman of the LADF Board. “Our vision is for the foundation’s programs, including the 50th Dodgers Dreamfield that will be built with gala proceeds, to improve the lives of 10,000 children annually.”
The Los Angeles Dodgers Ownership Group is presenting the 2018 Blue Diamond Gala. The group includes Walter; Earvin Magic Johnson; Todd Boehly; Robert “Bobby” Patton, Jr.; and Peter Guber. Serving as this year’s event chairs are Emily and Teddy Greenspan; Terri and Eric Holoman; William McMorrow; Stephanie and Nicholas Sandler; Sarah and Kurt Rappaport, Cindy Starrett and Allan Bates; and Renata and Ken Simril.
