There will be a cocktail reception followed by an elaborate dinner, prepared by celebrity Chef Cat Cora, which will be served during the festivities. Additionally, the event will include a live auction and a post-Oscar’s show performance by Foster the People. Choppard, Neuro, and Wells Fargo are the presenting sponsors of the event, and American Airlines is the official airline partner of the EJAF.
“How would you have to dress if you were sitting next to me at a table at Elton John’s Oscar Party?” quipped Steven Tyler. “Sounds like a loaded question, eh? Put your money where your mouth is and arrive as you will and come as you are to help me support the Elton John AIDS Foundation!” The charismatic, energetic lead singer of Aerosmith has been a supporter of the Elton John AIDS Foundation for years, according to Scott Campbell, executive director at EJAF.
“All of us at EJAF are deeply grateful to Steven for his tremendous generosity over the past several years,” said Mr. Campbell. “We are particularly thrilled to welcome him as an Event Chair this year for our 20th Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party and so very thankful for his leadership and enthusiasm in helping to raise additional dollars for our urgent cause.”
The Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 20th annual Academy Awards Viewing Party occurs the evening of the awards presentations on February 26, 2012. The current bid was at $13,500 at time of publication. For more information on Steven Tyler’s auction, visit Charitybuzz.com.
