The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) are hosting a third annual Blue Diamond Gala on Thursday, June 8, at Dodger Stadium. The evening will include a concert by Grammy-winning bands Maroon 5 and Earth, Wind & Fire.
Presented by the Los Angeles Dodgers ownership group, the event will include a blue carpet and pre-show dinner party. Dodgers players and coaches are expected to attend the intimate event.
“For more than two decades, the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation has worked to drive positive change throughout Southern California,” Dodgers owner and chairman of the LADF Board Mark Walter said.
“The funds we raise from our third annual Blue Diamond Gala will advance our mission of building healthy communities and supporting the academic success of children in need across the region. We look forward to joining our many supporters, including Maroon 5 and Earth, Wind & Fire, on the field at Dodger Stadium to strengthen some of the most challenged communities in Los Angeles.”
The primary focus of the LADF is to support cornerstone programs in Sports + Recreation, Education + Literacy and Health + Wellness benefitting children and families in need throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
By leveraging strategic partnerships, the mission is to harness the power of the Dodgers brand and the passion from the base base fans to implement positive change in underserved communities.
Since inception, the LADF has invested over $18 million into the Los Angeles community in the form of direct programs and grant making to local organizations, impacting millions of children.
Proceeds from the Blue Diamond Gala will support the expansion of its direct programs, Dodgers Dreamfields and Dodger RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities), enabling LADF to reach its goal of building 50 baseball fields in underserved communities and attain its vision of impacting the lives of 10,000 young boys and girls, utilizing the power of sport.
