The Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party and Charity Fundraiser is returning to the newly open West Hollywood Park on March 27, 2022. This marks the 30-year anniversary of the event.
Elton John will be joining via satellite from his rescheduled concert in Lincoln, Nebraska, and David Furnish will lead the show with a star-studded line-up of co-hosts. Six-time Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter, performer, producer, and New York Times best-selling author Brandi Carlile is set to perform. Additional names joining the event will be announced in the coming weeks.
“David and I are so grateful to celebrate 30 years of the Foundation and especially grateful to Brandi Carlile and the many fabulous guests supporting us for another magnificent night in West Hollywood Park,” said Elton John in a statement. “Our success reflects the passion, commitment, and generosity of our supporters. Together, we are making a difference and bringing light and hope to people living with HIV around the world.”
“Getting to perform for such a significant milestone of one of the most legendary Oscar Parties is an absolute honor,” said Brandi Carlile. “I’m looking forward to celebrating Hollywood’s big night with close friends and supporters of the Elton John AIDS Foundation and helping bring awareness to an incredibly important cause.”
The Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Academy Awards Viewing Party has grown from an intimate dinner in Beverly Hills to one of Hollywood’s most star-studded occasions, known for its performances, on-stage talent, and auction. All funds raised during the evening will support the Foundation’s network of partners and local experts across four continents to challenge discrimination, prevent infections and provide treatment as well as influencing governments to end AIDS.
“We want to remind people that while the coronavirus has consumed headlines for the past two years, HIV/AIDS is still a global epidemic,” says David Furnish, Chairman of the Elton John AIDS Foundation. “It remains paramount to continue raising funds and awareness towards issues affecting people living with and at risk of HIV, and there is no better platform than our annual Academy Awards Viewing Party to do just that.”
The Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) was established in 1992 and is one of the leading independent AIDS organizations in the world. EJAF’s mission is to be a powerful force in the end to the AIDS epidemic. Since 2004, the City of West Hollywood has co- sponsored the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party and Charity Fundraiser.
In 2020, the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party and Charity Fundraiser raised $6.4 million dollars and at the virtual event in 2021 they raised $3 million dollars to help end the AIDS epidemic.
