Please join us in honoring Derrick Hall, President & CEO of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Considered by many to be among the leaders of the game of baseball, Derrick has turned the organization into a model franchise in the sports industry and throughout the business world.
In the D-backs organization, Derrick has put on emphasis on volunteering. In its short history, the Arizona Diamondbacks Foundation and organization have provided $40 million in charitable giving, including more than $19 million during Derrick’s ten years of leadership.
On a personal level, Derrick is a force in his own right. He serves on 25 boards, including the Arizona Mexico Commission, Great Hearts Academies, Arizona Chamber of Commerce, Greater Phoenix Convention & Visitors Bureau, Muscular Dystrophy Association, National Advisory Council for Pancreatic Cancer,
Make-A-Wish America, Positive Coaching Alliance, and the Phoenix Thunderbirds. He is a recipient of the Torch of Liberty Award from the Anti-Defamation League and is a member of Temple Solel.
Proceeds from this gala event go towards the ongoing restoration of the Cutler-Plotkin Jewish Heritage Center. Originally built in 1921, this historical Phoenix landmark served as Phoenix, Arizona's first synagogue and later became a Chinese-speaking and then a Spanish-speaking Baptist Church. Purchased by the Arizona Jewish Historical Society in 2002, the center now serves as a museum and event venue open to people of all faiths. Exhibitions and programs educate the public about Jewish heritage as well as the diverse history of Arizona. The center is a Phoenix Point of Pride and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
