Ozzy Will Co-Chair Host Academy Awards Viewing Dinner and After Party (2/1/2006)

Sir Elton John and David Furnish will host the 14th Annual Academy Award Viewing Dinner and After-Party to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) along with co-sponsors Audi, Chopard and VH1 on Sunday, March 5, 2006 at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, CA. This year marks the second year that Chopard will be involved in this grand event and the first year Audi and VH1 will participate as co-sponsors.

The Elton John AIDS Foundation party is one of the most important events on Oscar night as it brings together the biggest names in the entertainment industry to raise money for one very worthy cause, the fight against HIV/AIDS. Past guests have included Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Donald Trump, Denzel Washington, Hillary Swank, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman, Sir Paul McCartney, Donatella Versace, Mary J. Blige, Eva Longoria, Christina Aguilera, Natalie Cole, Halle Berry, Paula Abdul, Joss Stone, Jeffrey Katzenberg, John Waters, Beck and Sir Ben Kingsley just to name a few.

Audi, Chopard and VH1 have supported EJAF in various capacities since the organization was established. "The level of commitment that Audi, Chopard and VH1 have offered in support of the Elton John AIDS Foundation is remarkable," says EJAF Director Scott Campbell. "We are looking forward to working together to create one of the most spectacular events to date."

This year's Event Co-Chairs include Dame Elizabeth Taylor, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Nicole Kidman, Donatella Versace, Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, Sharon Stone, Sheryl Crow, Barbara Davis, Audi Board Member for Marketing and Sales Ralph Weyler, Chopard President Caroline Gruosi-Scheufele and VH1 General Manager Tom Calderone.

Well-known event designer J. Ben Bourgeois from Los Angeles-based event production company J. Ben Bourgeois Productions, will transform the "Outdoor Plaza" of the Pacific Design Center into a lavish and warm environment using hints of periwinkle and chocolate brown staged in a custom-built circular tent. Guests will arrive at 4:00pm for a cocktail reception followed by a five-course benefit dinner and viewing of the 78th Academy Awards telecast. Immediately following the viewing guests will gather to celebrate the night's biggest winners.
