The invitation only event will take place at the legendary Village Studios in West Los Angeles.
"David Justice is a true All-Star and offers a perfect reflection on the importance of our mission," said Louis Hernandez Jr., founder of A Little Hope Foundation and co-chair of the advisory board.

It's truly an honor to stand alongside so many recognized industry leaders for this important cause."
A Little Hope Foundation is hosting this Gala to raise money for its Global Scholarship Programs, which provide equal opportunity to underprivileged and underrepresented students aspiring to a better life through a higher education.
David Justice is a retired American baseball outfielder and designated hitter in Major League Baseball who played for the Atlanta Braves, Cleveland Indians, New York Yankees, and the Oakland Athletics.
