Hollywood is having their night… why don’t we have ours? With the recent changes to the film industry here in West Virginia, there is no better time for all those involved, both professionals and supporters, to celebrate with like-minded folk as to why we love the entertainment and film industry.
We’ll be rolling out the red carpet with a photo opp and a fun opportunity for attendees to be interviewed during our live video feed. The Oscars will be shown on a big screen as we enjoy hor’dourves and non-alcoholic beverages. We’ll also be raffling off some great prizes for the event! A cash bar will be hosted by Lakeview.
Guest Charity – Girls on the run
With all that’s been going on as it relates to women’s rights in the film industry, we wanted to identify and support a guest charity that’s making a positive impact in our community when it comes to female growth and empowerment. We are excited to share the evening with our special guest charity, Girls on the run. Girls on the run is a national charity with a local branch located in Morgantown, WV. Thirty percent of ticket and raffle proceeds from the Oscar Party will be donated to Girls on the run to support community outreach efforts and the organization’s vision of “a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.” For more information, please visit: https://www.gotrncwv.org/
