Annual Turn 2 Foundation Dinner

Former New York Yankees Captain and shortstop Derek Jeter on Wednesday hosted the 19th Annual Turn 2 Foundation Dinner Presented by Morgan Stanley at Cipriani Wall Street. The event raised more than $1.5 million for the organization's youth initiatives -- the most ever raised at the gala.

Many of Jeter's former teammates joined the hundreds of celebrity guests, sponsors and other supporters for the Turn 2 Foundation's marquee annual event.

Michael Strahan -- co-host of Live! With Kelly and Michael and Hall-of-Fame New York Giants defensive end -- moderated a panel discussion featuring Jeter, New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher, former New Jersey Devils captain Bryce Salvador and New York Liberty forward Swin Cash. The athletes all are contributors to The Players' Tribune. Following the discussion, GRAMMY-winning artist Wyclef Jean wowed the audience with an electric musical performance.
