The host for the evening will be former First Daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, who will present a short film about the charity’s work, produced by Garner.

Mark Shriver, of Save the Children, said, 'With nearly 1 in 4 children in the United States living in poverty today, there is an even greater urgency for increased investments in high-quality early learning programs. The gala will shine a spotlight on this need and, we hope, inspire Americans from all walks of life to take action.'
