APLA is rolling out the red carpet for “The Envelope Please,” an Oscar viewing party for celebrities, local influencers and VIPs from the entertainment and Los Angeles community. The exclusive black-tie affair, which has raised more than $1.2 million for APLA through its history, will be held at The Abbey in West Hollywood on Sunday, February 22. This year’s fundraiser is expected to draw more than 300 guests for cocktails and a lavish buffet-style dinner featuring a menu developed by The Abbey’s chef Eric Ernest.
“‘The Envelope Please’ is a time to gather with friends and celebrate one of Hollywood’s biggest nights,” said Craig E. Thompson, executive director of APLA. “We are thrilled to welcome our friends and guests on Oscar night to an important evening that supports APLA’s vital programs and services for HIV-positive people in Los Angeles and beyond.”
“‘The Envelope Please’ has become a cherished tradition for my friends and me, and I am honored to join APLA’s supporters once again for a wonderful Oscar evening at The Abbey,” said Jennifer Love Hewitt, who has hosted the event for the past five years. “It’s not only a fun and memorable night, but most importantly, a chance to raise much-needed funds for this important organization.”
“Each year, we look forward to hosting ‘The Envelope Please’ at The Abbey,” said David Cooley, founder of The Abbey. “It is an honor to partner with our friends at APLA for this magical evening, and to support such a worthwhile cause.”
Unfortunately the event – which will take place at The Abbey Food and Bar, 692 North Robertson Blvd, West Hollywood – is now sold out.
