Oscar Night America event in Houston

February 20, 2009 3:20:41 AM PST
The thrill of walking down the red carpet on Oscar Night won't be felt by the stars in Hollywood alone; Houston will encounter Oscar's unique brand of magic at Oscar Night America benefiting Houston's Ronald McDonald House. On Sunday, February 22, 2009, the 13th Annual Young Friends of the Ronald McDonald House Oscar Night America event will be held at the InterContinental Houston Hotel.

The distinctive black tie affair continues to be the only event sanctioned event in Houston by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences!

The Academy provides our guests with the same printed Academy Award show programs as those handed out at the ceremonies in Los Angeles. This year's event is highly anticipated because a new element has been added to the mix -- a casino!!

ABC13 reporter Jessica Willey is the Mistress of Ceremonies for the event.
