BMFI's Oscar Party

By Devin Wachs, Public Relations Manager, BMFI

Sunday, February 26 might seem a world away now that blossoms are on the trees, but the time has moved quickly at BMFI with the roll out of our spring events. I hope that you'll forgive us for the delay in posting these photos from our Oscar Party.

Over 230 guests enjoyed BMFI's fourth annual Oscar Party, which featured the Academy Awards broadcast larger-than-life on the big screen. In addition to the live simulcast of the Oscars, the event included a silent auction and a gourmet buffet dinner from JPM Catering & Events that was paired with complimentary beer selections from Victory Brewing Company. The evening was sponsored by the Delaware Valley Audi Dealers and all proceeds benefited BMFI.

We appreciate the support of our sponsors, auction donors, guests, volunteers, and staff--thank you for helping to bring a little bit of Hollywood to Bryn Mawr.

We encouraged guests to dress in their red carpet best or come in costumes inspired by the nominated films. Gladys Saldana dressed in this vintage outfit as a tribute to Best Picture winner The Artist. Photo by Joel Perlish.
