When the Los Angeles Dodgers throw a party, they do so in style—with a little help from some very famous friends.

The iconic band Fleetwood MacLindsey Buckingham, Mick Fleetwood, Christine  McVie, John McVie and Stevie Nicks—performed at the Dodgers’ second annual Blue Diamond Gala, marking the group’s only public performance for 2016. The event, which was chaired by Shelli & Irving Azoff, brought together over 1000 celebrants to Dodger Stadium, raising funds for the non-profit LA Dodgers Foundation. The organization’s primary focus is to support cornerstone programs in Sports + Recreation, Education + Literacy and Health + Wellness benefitting children and families in need throughout the greater Los Angeles region. 

Legendary broadcaster and Hall of Famer Vin Scully was honored for his 67 years of consecutive service and was introduced by Dodger pitching legend and current broadcaster Orel Hershiser
