If you are a fan of the Oscars and if you want to attend a fun event where all proceeds go to charity, I've got the perfect offer for you.
Aegis Foundation’s “Help Elevate Youth” Event is a fundraiser for One Heartland and Smile Network. Join the Aegis Foundation in walking the Red Carpet and watching the live broadcast of the 81st Academy Awards. ALL proceeds benefit HIV-impacted children of One Heartland (formerly Camp Heartland) and the Smile Network (providing life-altering, reconstructive surgeries to impoverished children).
This event is open to the public and welcomes all ages. An ideal night out for movie goers, fashion fanatics and people wanting an exciting Hollywood-themed evening. All this AND you help support two great organizations.
