The UNDER THE LIGHTS gala featuring Cal Ripken, Jr. and Kevin Spacey was a night where sports and entertainment superstars came together to benefit their respective charities.

The evening consisted of musical entertainment, surprise special guests, and a lively retrospective on the Hall of Fame and Academy Award-winning careers of two living legends. VIP guests were treated to photo opportunities and a buffet dinner after-party with celebrity guest from the sport and entertainment fields.

Kevin Spacey Foundation first partnered with Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation in Baltimore in early 2014 on the U.S. pilot of Home Grown, a performing arts initiative for underserved youth. At first glance, both charities seemed vastly different with focus on sports and the performing arts. We discovered that couldn’t be further from the truth. Both charities successfully impact youth with programs to instill critical life skills for success. Our foundations’ work is strengthened through collaboration and the impact is unquestionable.

The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation and Kevin Spacey Foundation thanks all of our sponsors and friends for their dedicated support.
