SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Willamalane is creating its own red carpet experience at its Oscar watch party this weekend.
The party will take place at the Adult Activity Center in Springfield; starting at 4 p.m. on Sunday. Attendees can walk the red carpet and dressing up is encouraged.
Attendees can also fill out their Oscar ballots and win prizes. There will be hors d’oeuvres, wine and “mocktails,” making it a family affair.
This is the first year for the event. Willamalane hopes it’s a great success because the money raised will go to its recreational activities.
“So that goes to help everyone from preschoolers to our seniors here at the adult activity center, so really by supporting this event you are allowing us to do more in the community and be a presence in Springfield,” said Kim Lyddane, Willamalane Events Coordinator.
Tickets are $10 and the deadline to register is Thursday, Feb. 21, but organizers say they won’t turn anyone away.
KEZI 9 News is sponsoring party, and Brian and Jennifer Richardson will be there to emcee. Click here for more information.
