Shine Like the Stars at MEND’s 7th Annual Academy Awards Gala

WEBSITE MASTHEAD FINAL

Is watching the Academy Awards at home a little too dull for you? Are you looking for a way to help support MEND, the 2012 California’s nonprofit of the year? Then do both by joining us at a very special celebration of the 2017 Academy Awards ceremony at MEND’s 7th Annual Gala of Glitz, Glamour & Giving.

On Sunday, February 26, 2017, you are invited to take part with other MEND supporters in a special viewing of the ABC 7 broadcast of the Academy Awards at the Globe Theatre at Universal Studios Hollywood. Proceeds from the event benefit MEND, which at last year’s viewing party raised over $300,000.

As MEND’s guest, you’ll have a chance to experience the glitz and glamour of Hollywood as you and your guests walk the red carpet into the beautiful Globe Theatre. Once inside, you’ll be able to cast your own awards ballot, enjoy spectacular hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, take part in live and silent auctions, and dine with friends while watching the awards ceremony on giant screens surrounding the ballroom.

MEND’s annual awards viewing event drew over 450 attendees from near and far in 2016. As photographs from last year’s event attest, it was a memorable night for those who attended. Tickets are expected to sell out fast for this month’s gala. Ready to buy your tickets? Purchase online now.
