The San Diego Gay Men's Chorus is bringing the magic of Hollywood to San Diego on Oscar night.
The San Diego Gay Men’s Chorus (SDGMC) is getting ready to celebrate the most anticipated entertainment night of the year.
The renowned organization will roll out the "Red Carpet Party" for guests to watch the Oscars in San Diego’s biggest Academy Awards viewing event, taking place on Sunday, February 26 at 4:30 pm
Executive Director of the SDGMC Bob Lehman says, “There’s going to be glitz, glamour, shocking surprises and major drama…plus, we’ll be watching the Academy Awards! Grab your tux or t-shirt and join us for stars, champagne and even a chance to see Mariah Carey in concert.”
This year is especially notable to the community because the LGBT film “Moonlight” has been honored with a slew of nominations including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor (Mahershala Ali).
Along with “Moonlight” in the Best Picture category are “La La Land,” “Arrival” “Fences,” “Hacksaw Ridge” “Hell or High Water,” “Hidden Figures,” “Lion,” and “Manchester by the Sea.”
The festivities will include a walk down the red carpet, a ballot contest where your correct award picks will get you cash and other prizes, a raffle to win two fourth row floor seats to see Mariah Carey and Lionel Richie for their “All the Hits” tour.
Get up close and personal with stars and watch the show on one of 25 HD Widescreen TVs. Win $1,000 in cash and prizes and enjoy great live entertainment throughout the evening.
“It’s called the Gay Super Bowl for a reason!” adds Lehman.
Dress to the nines or come as your favorite Hollywood star and let the fashion police watch you strut your stuff for a chance to win even more prizes.
Also included are:
- Complimentary glass of champagne upon arrival!
- Incredibly delicious tray-passed hors d'oeuvres!
- Specialty food stations!
- VIP booths, Party Tables, Reserved Seating and General Admission Available
-Two Full-service bars, 30 taps
This promises to be a night of Hollywood magic right here in San Diego.
“This is the ultimate Sunday Funday!" Lehman says. "Not only is it amazing fun, but all proceeds go to an amazing cause as well—helping our Chorus continue its community outreach as one of San Diego’s most loud and proud gay organizations. Come help us change lives with music.”
