Spend a night out in Hollywood style with the USC Alumni Club of Austin for our signature fundraiser, Sips & Stars: An Oscar Night Gala. Whether you're a Trojan or not, this Academy Awards viewing party is not to be missed!
The Gala will be held at Max's Underground at Max's Wine Dive (207 San Jacinto Blvd.) on Sunday, February 27th, 2011, starting at 6:30pm. Featuring Max's upscale comfort food, world-class wine, professional photographers, and an Oscar Pool, guests will enjoy the magic of watching the Academy Awards while dining and drinking in luxury!
In addition to other festivities, guests will also have a chance to meet real working filmmakers straight from the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, which has produced such greats as George Lucas, Ron Howard, and Judd Apatow. Attendees will also have a chance to guess the winners of the night in our Oscar Pool, with the best guesser taking home a great prize.
Best of all, 100% of the proceeds from the Gala will support the USC Alumni Club of Austin, a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible organization, whose mission includes providing Austin-area students with college scholarships.
Semi-formal attire is suggested. Open to the public with advanced ticket purchase only.
