The Hollywood Arts Council presented their 26th Annual Charlie Awards Luncheon in the Blossom Room of the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel, home of the first Academy Awards ceremony, at a Sold Out event on Thursday, March 29, 2012.

Check out the photos from the event below!

Nyla Arslanian, President of the Hollywood Arts Council said: "This was a record breaking year for us. We had our best year ever and raised $85,000 at this year's luncheon. Additional funds will come from our current Online Auction, www.biddingforgood.com/hollywoodartscouncil, which includes over 75 one-of-a-kind items, tickets to shows, art and the like. Bidding will close on Sunday, April 15, 2012." Monies raised will help benefit the Council's Project S.O.A.R. (Students Overcoming All Risks) serving thousands of elementary school children who do not have access to art or artistic direction in eight Title 1 Hollywood schools. The Charlie Awards also provide support for our Annual Free Children's Festival of the Arts held annually every second Sunday in June at Paramount Pictures, as well as other worthy and necessary community efforts.

The Hollywood Arts Council's 26th Annual Charlie Awards was Co-Chaired by Kate Langrall Folb, President of Nightingale Entertainment and Ira Handelman, Owner of Handelman Consulting. ABC7 Television's George Pennacchio served as Emcee at the event.

The Council's Charlie Awards are presented annually to honor individuals and companies for significant contributions to the arts and Hollywood. Visit www.hollywoodartscouncil.org for more information.
