Hosted by philanthropist and FLiFF board member Steve Savor, the party promises to be a night of fun, fashion, music and a celebration of cinematic creativity.

Guests will be treated to an Affair to Remember, with champagne flowing, open bar, lavish hors d’oeuvres, live music and multiple viewing screens indoors and poolside for the live Oscars telecast.
