An Evening With Oscar – A Fundraising Gala Event


Attend An Evening with Oscar, an event to benefit the Catalina Island Medical Center. Held at the Catalina Casino Ballroom, this gala will be the perfect setting for guests to enjoy a live viewing of the Oscar telecast, grab a buffet dinner, and place bids on silent live auction items.

Purchasing tickets online avails you of Fast Access check-in benefits, as well as signs you up for the CIMC Foundation’s online and silent auctions, so you don’t have to register upon arrival. Auctions are handled by Bidding For Good, the fundraising partner for the event. Underwriter sponsors for the event include Jean Wells and the Santa Catalina Island Company.
