WOODRIDGE, Ill. (WLS) --Just because you can't go to the 89th Academy Awards, doesn't mean you can't party like Hollywood's elite.
Hollywood Blvd. Cinema in Woodridge is hosting its 12th Annual Variety, the Children's Charity of Illinois Academy Award Viewing Gala on February 26, 2017. On Oscar night, the theater invites guests to walk the red carpet, get photos taken by paparazzi, and watch the Academy Awards on the big screen. Guests will also be treated with entrees, desserts, a silent auction, and even a swag bag full of fun.
All of the proceeds from the event benefit Variety, the Children's Charity of Illinois; which is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of local children through programs like Kids on the Go and Live to Achieve. Tickets are $60 dollars to attend, which you can purchase at www.hblvd.com.
