Oscars and Aegis Foundation Pre-Show Glimpse


The Aegis Foundation's Oscar Event was a success. I wanted to share a few pictures I snapped before getting into my tux.

The entrance to the gorgeous Hotel Ivy in downtown Minneapolis was Oscar and red carpet ready (above).

Inside the lobby, the red carpet continued and met the sponsor backdrop. It was quiet now, but hundreds of guests would arrive in a few hours.



Tables filled with silent auction items lined all available walls. Just a few examples are below.







Even Tiffany & Co. joined the excitement of the Oscars.


The candy buffet became everyone's best friend by the end of the night.

OOOH! I love a silent auction. (But they always get me in $$ trouble. I'm quite the competitor when it comes to something I really want.)
