The Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation (LADF) Blue Diamond Gala is celebrating “10 Years Reimagined” with the seventh annual event at Dodger Stadium that will see eight-time GRAMMY Award winner Usher perform a private benefit concert.
Individual tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available for purchase ahead of the June 22 event. Proceeds benefit the LADF and their programs and initiatives aimed at improving education, health care, homelessness and social justice for all Angelenos.
The Blue Diamond Gala, nicknamed “The Party For L.A.,” is presented by the Los Angeles Dodgers ownership group. The night includes a blue carpet, pre-show dinner party, DJ D-Nice performing a set, and post-concert food trucks on site.
Dodgers players, coaches and celebrities are among those who regularly attend the star-studded event.
“The seventh annual Blue Diamond Gala celebrates LADF’s positive impact as we champion for Los Angeles communities,” Dodgers owner and LADF board chair Mark Walter said in a statement. “We are thrilled to have Usher perform this year at ‘The Party for LA’ to raise vital funds allowing us to invest in Angelenos and provide the opportunities that they deserve.”
LADF chief executive officer Nichol Whiteman added: “The gala honors our partners, community members, and everyday champions as the foundation of our success. Our theme, ‘10 Years Reimagined’, reflects our vision to build capacity, train future leaders, and provide equitable opportunities for the remarkable organizations and individuals who we support. Together, we serve as a shining example of placing humanity first.”
Under the Guggenheim ownership group, LADF raised more than $81 million and is on track to reach $100 million this year. Over the last decade, LADF has invested more than $50 million in their programs and grants to local organizations and impacted more than 9 million youth.
