|6:30pm doors open / 8:00 award show begins|
Join us for a chance to walk the red carpet, eat great food, play trivia, win prizes, and fundraise for a good cause at this year’s Academy Awards Party in Rhinebeck! As always, this event is a benefit. This year, proceeds will be donated to Winnakee Land Trust, a not for profit organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the natural, scenic and recreational resources of Rhinebeck, Red Hook, Clinton, Milan, and Tivoli.
On Sunday March 4th, we’re excited to watch the show and celebrate the award winners with all of you!
The scoop on this year’s festivities:
Potluck: Upstate will provide fruit and cheese. Please bring a dish to share. The back room will be dedicated to all of the snacks it can hold.
The Program: Doors open at 6:30pm. Watch the televised Red Carpet and participate in Upstate’s own home-spun version, to be screened just before the awards show begins. The Awards Program starts at 8:00 — this year co-emceed by Upstate’s own John Istona and Marion Albers.
Prizes: Prizes will be awarded for Best Fancy Attire, Best Pajamas, Best Dressed-Like-Your-Favorite-Movie-From-2017, and the highest number of correct guesses on your 2017 Academy Award winners ballot. (A list of this year’s prize donors will be posted here soon…)
Fundraise! As always, this event is a benefit. Net proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Winnakee Land Trust.
Event tickets are available at the Rhinebeck box office for $15. Price includes admission to the fundraiser and an Academy Award Winners ballot, which enters you in our contest to win prizes for your guesses about this year’s winners.
