In anticipation of Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony, the Motion Picture & Television Fund threw their annual Night Before party in West on Saturday evening.

Stars in attendance, included 2020 MPTF host committee members Margot Robbie, Laura Dern, and Renée Zellweger, as well as a slew of other major players who aimed to raise funds for the charitable organization.     

The annual fundraising gala raked in an impressive $5.4million for MPTF's 'programs and services' benefiting industry veterans, according to PR Newswire.

The programs and services offered by the Motion Picture & Television Fund, include 'financial assistance, crisis counseling, and care giving support.'

The donations also directly help maintain the 'legendary retirement facility' located in Woodland Hills that is called 'home' by countless television and film veterans.

The MPTF was established by silent film star Charlie Chaplin and studio executive Joseph M. Schenck back in 1921 as a way to 'provide a safety net' for those involved in the notoriously volatile entertainment industry. 

The organization has been holding it's annual Night Before pre-Oscar party since 2003. 

Margot Robbie led stars at the evening soiree, which took place at Fox Studios, in a strapless black Chanel dress that featured a figure hugging silhouette and button-front detailing.
