We were honored to play a small part in the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) Academy Awards Viewing Party this past weekend. Our parent company, DataGraphic, had the pleasure of printing the invitation and program (designed by Project Projects) for this important event:
A little bit about the event:
EJAF’s very first Academy Awards Viewing Party took place in February of 1992 – a gathering of a small group of concerned and generous friends at the Maple Drive Restaurant that raised $300,000 to help EJAF in its infancy. Since then, the benefit has grown by leaps and bounds, raising $5.1 million in 2008 alone. Featuring a cocktail reception, a gala dinner during the live Academy Awards telecast, a live auction, and performances by Sir Elton John and special guests, the Party brings together luminaries from the Hollywood community, business, fashion, music, public service, and philanthropy to celebrate the achievements of the Academy Awards nominees and to raise urgently needed dollars for EJAF’s vital work. During an evening when the eyes of the world are on Hollywood, EJAF’s Party focuses public awareness on the continually evolving AIDS epidemic.
