Victory Theatre to Host Inaugural Awards Gala


Evansville area residents have a swanky new location in which to watch the 85th Annual Academy Awards®: the beautiful historic Victory Theatre. VenuWorks of Evansville will host the Victory Theatre Inaugural Awards Gala on Sunday, February 24, 2013. A Red Carpet experience will begin at 5:00 PM, followed by the show at 6:00 PM.
Tickets for the Gala are $10.00 for General Admission or $25.00 for VIP. VIP tickets include access to the Mezzanine level, reserved seating in the balcony, hors d’oeuvres and a dedicated cash bar. Proceeds from all tickets will be donated to the Tri-State Food Bank.
When film aficionados arrive, they will have the opportunity to have a keepsake photo taken on the Red Carpet. Be sure to dress to impress, as trophies will be awarded to Best Dressed (male and female) and Best Celebrity Look Alike. Attendees will also have the opportunity to win a $100 shopping spree and gift basket donated by Tracy Zeller Jewelry and tickets to upcoming Victory Theatre events.
“We are really excited about this event,” says Mary Blair, Executive Director of Tri-State Food Bank. “It comes at a perfect time. With the holidays over, this is a great opportunity to raise funds for Tri-State Food Bank to help those in need.”
