The ELTON JOHN AIDS FOUNDATION (EJAF) will present its 21st annual ACADEMY AWARDS Viewing Party on SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 24th at WEST HOLLYWOOD PARK in LOS ANGELES. SIR ELTON JOHN and DAVID FURNISH will host the gala event, which includes an exciting live auction, a special musical guest, and DJ JOHNNY DYNELL.
The FOUNDATION’s ACADEMY AWARDS Viewing Party, over the past 21 years, has raised nearly $34 million. These funds help the Foundation to support a wide range of initiatives, including direct treatment, care, and support services for people living with HIV/AIDS in marginalized communities, such as among young gay black men; providing injection drug users with clean needles to prevent HIV infection and transmission; and sexual health education for young people in America who are most at risk.
