A Fabulous Oscar Party For A Cause

David Zivan | February 12, 2019 | Feature Features

Center on Halsted presents A Night With Oscar—the best viewing party in the city.
Expect plenty of entertainment at this year's A Night With Oscar event.

You likely know of Center on Halsted, the pioneering nonprofit that has become the midwest’s most comprehensive community center in support of LGBTQ people. Did you know that they also throw a great bash? For more than a decade, the organization has put on A Night with Oscar, the city’s top Academy Awards viewing party. There’s a red carpet arrival—some guests usually end up on TV—a silent auction with great stuff (including a dinner, in disguise, with the dining critic of CS magazine), a big screen to watch the show, entertainment instead of commercial breaks, dinner and an open bar. Whom you thank during your acceptance speech is entirely up to you. Feb. 24, Park West, 322 W. Armitage Ave., seats $75, booths of 6 $1,050, tickets available at
