Benefiting the Community Theatre of Greensboro (CTG), the Triad’s Oscar Night celebration will be held at the O.Henry Hotel in Greensboro, beginning at 6 PM. Tickets for the black-tie gala are $125/person, $225/couple, and $850/table of eight; tickets may be purchased by calling the CTG office at 336-333-7469 from noon to 4 PM, Tuesday through Friday, or purchase tickets online.
CTG, the O.Henry Hotel, and Edward Jones are sponsoring Oscar Night.
The Triad audience will watch the Academy Awards telecast live on large screens. For the fifth straight year, the Community Theatre of Greensboro has been chosen by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as one of only 50 nonprofits around the country to host an Oscar Experience event! In honor of the very first Academy Awards, we're inviting guests to channel the spirit of the Roaring Twenties. Come in costume or don your finest gowns and formalwear inspired by the glitz and glamor of the Twenties.
- 6 pm: Reception, Champagne, and Silent Auction
- 7:45 pm: Dinner and CTG entertainment
- 8:30 pm: Academy Award telecast on ABC-45
"Oscar night is an event meant to be a shared with others. This network of fundraising parties across the nation is a natural extension of that experience, and also represents the year-round philanthropic work the Academy does," said Academy CEO Dawn Hudson. "This February we are thrilled to be able to celebrate the movies with fans nationwide while supporting charities around the country."
The Academy will provide Triad party guests with the same official program that is distributed to guests at the Oscar® presentation at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood.
Triad Oscar Night guests may feel like stars themselves as they:
- Walk the red carpet;
- Are treated like celebrities from the moment they enter the elegant O.Henry lobby;
- Enjoy performances by CTG performers;
- Bid on fantastic silent and live auction items, event tickets, trips; and
- Witness all the surprises and glamour of the Academy Awards telecast!
“Oscar Night generates excitement all over the world,” said Mitchel Sommers, CTG’s Executive Director. “With the Academy’s help, our guests will once again feel like they are on the A-list. We had an incredible turnout for Oscar Night in 2012, and we hope to raise even more money for CTG’s outreach programs in 2013.”
