The 3rd Annual Blue Diamond Gala was a night to remember with performances from Earth, Wind, and Fire and Maroon 5 which had everyone on their feet dancing to all the latest jams.
The blue carpet was filled with athletes and stars like Larry King, Prince Jackson, Loretta Devine, Mario Lopez and the whole LA Dodgers baseball team.
Adrain Gonzales expressed that he and his wife have been so blessed; giving back to the community is something that they have always done and is very important to them.
Rich Hill was asked by correspondent @mjthatmediagurl, “If you could take any other player, from another team, and bring to the Dodgers, who would it be?” He quickly responded, “Dustin Pedroia because of his consistency and he plays his very best every night.”
The Gala raised over $1.5 million from ticket sales and donations.
