On February 22nd, 2015, the Catalina Island Medical Center Foundation hosted it’s annual “An Evening with Oscar” fundraiser and celebration in the World Famous Catalina Casino Ballroom. Invited guests arrived on the Red Carpet and were given “VIP Treatment”!
Once inside the ballroom, everyone enjoyed the festivities which featured watching the Oscars Live on one of the largest screens in Avalon. A magnificent dinner was prepared by the Santa Catalina Island Company Chefs and Staff. During the broadcast, guests who supported the foundation by buying special Treasure Chest Keys were invited to try their luck, the grand prize being a cruise for 2 passengers anywhere Holland America Line travels, valued at $8,000!
Other highlights of the evening included the Live and Silent auctions, Oscar balloting and Catalina Oscar Selfies! The Catalina Island Medical Center Foundation wishes to thank it’s “An Evening with Oscar” sponsors:
