What a sensational night at the fabulous Ivy Hotel!
Starting with red carpet hostess’ Laurie & Julia (in fabulous Monique Lhuillier) ushering in the glam guests who were wearing couture from Ralph Lauren and Balenciago to St. John, and moving onto the upstairs screening rooms and chic VIP viewing area, Aegis Foundation hosted a party that was pure Hollywood.
The Oscars played on fifteen screens placed strategically throughout the beautifully appointed rooms allowing the glittering partygoers to view the ceremony as they mingled and enjoyed the opportunity to place bids on truly exceptional silent auction items including song lyrics written by John Lennon. Guests also had an opportunity to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win an elegant platinum and diamond key necklace Donated by Tiffany’s. There were many prizes to be won, including an elegant pair of Calvin Klein sunglasses and airline tickets, donated by OPHTHAMOLOGY P.A. and Southwest Airlines.
We are proud to announce that the contributions from our many generous sponsors and advertising donors helped us raise 29,000.00! This exceeded our aspirations and encouraged us to set new goals for next year.
