The glitz and glamour of Hollywood comes to Las Vegas for one evening, coordinated by the efforts of the Arthritis Foundation, when “Oscar Night America,” will be hosted inside the Rain nightclub at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas on Sunday, February 22. Cocktails and silent auction start at 4 p.m., followed by dinner and Oscar telecast at 5:30 p.m.
This year’s event, also known as “The Second Best Oscar® Party in the Country,” will mark a series of firsts. Rain Nightclub at the Palms Casino Resort will be a first-time host for the event, allowing for an all-new format and seating arrangement. Also, a new host committee has been assembled to conduct the event consisting of veterans of Las Vegas nightlife, entertainers, and casino marketing and socialites. Additionally, Oscar Night® America 2009 will stray from its traditional format in an effort to speak to a new audience and create a unique set of experiences. Our Las Vegas event will also be honoring three very deserving community members this year including Commitment to Community Award Honorees Glynda Rhodes, Zappos.com and Cathy Ray Community Health Award Honoree Parvin Modaber-Jacobs, MD.
