AVALON — The Catalina Island Medical Center (CIMC) Foundation will roll out the red carpet at Catalina Island Yacht Club on Oscar Night.
An Evening with Oscar, scheduled for Feb. 27, will feature a silent auction, an opportunity drawing and a chance to predict the winners and win prizes. Several televisions will be available for viewing the awards telecast.
Appetizers, a carving station and a chocolate fountain will be available throughout the night.
“The CIMC Foundation Board of Directors is looking forward to this outstanding evening of fun and celebration with the Oscar winners,” said foundation president Carol Reynolds. “Through the generosity of those who join us and our many donors, we are able to provide support for the medical center as it cares for our island community and overtown visitors.”
Funds raised at the event will be used to improve the health of the community. Thanks to the foundation, Catalina Island Medical Center was recently able to purchase a bone density scanner for diagnosing osteoporosis. Future plans include purchasing new X-ray equipment for the radiology department.
“The support of the Catalina Island Medical Center Foundation has been essential to our efforts to offer new services and better meet the needs of our community,” said Bryan Ballard, medical center CEO. “An Evening with Oscar is going to be a wonderful event and I’m looking forward to joining the community in support of the foundation.”
