SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Local movie fans got a chance to get dressed up and walk the red carpet Sunday.
Willamalane teamed up with KEZI 9 News to host an Academy Awards watch party that brought Hollywood glitz and the VIP treatment to Oregon.
Attendees walked the red carpet, signed autographs and even ran into the paparazzi.
It’s Willamalane’s first event like this and organizers hope to make it an annual tradition.
“Any sort of event we can bring to the community for all ages is a part of the mission of Willamalane; so, we’re just trying to provide recreation opportunities for families for older adults, for kids. We want everyone to be able to come out and get involved and have fun,” said Kerry Jack, Recreation Coordinator.
All the money raised through ticket sales went back to Willamalane to pay for future recreational activities.
