EJAF’s 23rd Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party, Sunday, February 22, 2015
January 21, 2015 - The Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) will present its 23 rd annual Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday, February 22, 2015, at West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles. Sir Elton John and David Furnish will host the gala event sponsored by the Foundation's generous corporate friends Chopard, Neuro Drinks, and Wells Fargo. For a third consecutive year, Chef Gordon Ramsay will prepare the sumptuous dinner for Party guests to enjoy while watching a live telecast of the 87 th Academy Awards.
Following dinner and an exciting live auction, Grammy award winner Nile Rodgers & CHIC will take the stage to perform, and DJ Johnny Dynell will spin tunes for guests to dance the night away. As a cultural icon and music innovator with more than 200 production credits to his name, Nile Rodgers transcends all styles of music across every generation. Signed to Warner Bros. Records, Nile is currently preparing the first new CHIC album in nearly 25 years and will take CHIC on the road throughout 2015 following the March 20 release of the first single “I'll Be There.”
The Foundation's Academy Awards Viewing Party is the most highly visible and successful fund-raising event in Hollywood on Oscar night. Over the past 23 years, this annual event has raised nearly $45 million, thanks to the generosity of EJAF's supporters. These funds help the Foundation to make a real difference in the lives of people at risk for or living with HIV/AIDS, including urgently needed medical care in the Caribbean, innovative treatment and prevention programs in the Southern United States, and national initiatives addressing the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States and Canada.
Audi, The Fiore Group, M·A·C Viva Glam, and the Starkey Hearing Foundation have partnered with EJAF as the evening's generous Co-Sponsors. The Foundation is especially grateful to the City of West Hollywood for continued collaboration with EJAF on shared goals. American Airlines is EJAF's official airline.

About the Elton John AIDS Foundation
At the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) we believe that AIDS can be beaten. We act on that belief by raising funds for effective programs and policies,
and also by speaking out with honesty and compassion about the realities of people's lives. Sir Elton John created EJAF over twenty years ago, first
in the United States in 1992 and then in the United Kingdom in 1993. Through hard work and with the help of our network of kind, amazing,
creative, and generous friends and supporters, the two foundations together have raised more than $300 million over the past two decades
to combat stigma, prevent infections, provide treatment and services, and motivate governments to end AIDS. The U.S. foundation
focuses its efforts on programs in the United States, the Americas, and the Caribbean, while the U.K. foundation funds
HIV-related work in Europe, Asia, and Africa. Join us in speaking out, taking action, and contributing to our
efforts to achieve a world without AIDS.
