"I really feel that this is a good beginning. I think the next ten years will be even easier to build up," said Lang Lang. "We believe that if music just disappears from children's fundamental studies, that would be the most tragic thing...We have to inspire kids to learn music."
The gala was hosted by Golden Globe-winning actor Alec Baldwin. Baldwin, along with auctioneer George McNeely, led the foundation's 'call for cash,' drawing a flurry of donations.
The evening also included special performances by three-time Grammy Award winner Wyclef Jean, twelve-time Grammy Award nominee Ledisi, and internationally acclaimed tenor Roberto Alagna.The Foundation presented a special award to Joan and Irwin Jacobs, who were honored for their contributions to classical arts.

And Sandy Weill, Chairman of the Board of Directors at LLIMF, presented a special award toJoan and Irwin Jacobs, who were honored for their contributions to classical arts. 
Guests included Catherine Azmoodeh, Charles Atkins and Lisa Simonsen,  Tony Bechara, Olivier Berrgruen, Christopher Burch & Monika Chiang, Andre Barwinski-Brown, Kelly Cutrone, Colin Cowie, Christina Cressey,  Dushan Di Concilio, Brian and Joanna Fisher, Judith M.

In ten years, LLIMF has successfully developed music education programs benefiting children across the world including Keys of Inspiration™, 101 Pianists™, Young Scholars™ and Play It Forward™.
Keys of Inspiration™ (KOI), one of the most influential programs of the foundation, weaves rigorous, keyboard-centric musical instruction into the mandatory curriculum of selected Title 1 public schools–integrating group piano classes for grades 2-5, twice a week. 
KOI started in 2013 with only two schools and 300 students. As of September 2018, it has 40 schools enrolled in the program from across the country, reaching over 16,000 students. 
“Utilizing a strategic expansion plan, KOI will reach 30,000 students in 80 schools by 2020”, says chief Executive Officer of LLIMF, Leszek Barwinski-Brown.
