Steven-Tyler-20010101

The Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) is very pleased to announce that Steven Tyler, a generous Foundation supporter and an Event Chair for EJAF's 20th annual Academy Awards Viewing Party, is working with EJAF to help make its 20th Oscar-night event especially successful. Through an auction on Charitybuzz Steven is inviting the highest bidder to be a guest at his table for the Party.

The winner of the auction will be a guest of Steven Tyler and Erin Brady, dining at their table for the February 26, 2012 event, which will be held at the newly redesigned West Hollywood Park in West Hollywood, CA. The Foundation's 20th annual event will feature a cocktail reception, an incredible dinner prepared by celebrity chef Cat Cora and served during the Oscar telecast, an exciting live auction, and an after-show performance by Foster the People. Chopard, Neuro, and Wells Fargo are the Presenting Sponsors for the event, and American Airlines is the official airline partner for the Foundation.

"How would you have to dress if you were sitting next to me at a table at Elton John's Oscar Party," Steven Tyler joked. "Sounds like a loaded question, eh? Put your money where your mouth is and arrive as you will and come as you are to help me support the Elton John AIDS Foundation!"
"All of us at EJAF are deeply grateful to Steven for his tremendous generosity over the past several years," stated EJAF Executive Director Scott Campbell. "We are particularly thrilled to welcome him as an Event Chair this year for our 20th Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party and so very thankful for his leadership and enthusiasm in helping to raise additional dollars for our urgent cause."
