along with Peconic Bay Medical Center
(PBMC) will kick off National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month during a special Academy Awards viewing party on Sunday, March 2.
Before entering the Hollywood bash, walk the "blue carpet" and enjoy VIP treatment as you pose on the step and repeat for photographers. While we wish nominees like Sandra Bullock
, Leonardo DiCaprio
, Jennifer Lawrence
and Matthew McConaughey
could attendee the gathering, they'll be at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, but you should still glam up for the East End celebration. Pictures taken on the "blue carpet" will be voted for on Facebook, and the photo with the most likes will receive dinner for two. The main event hosted by Ellen DeGeneres
, will screen in the dining room.
Starting Thursday, February 27, you can enter your Oscar picks for free or go big with a $50 ballot at (www.theriverheadproject.com
), with a chance to win a variety of prizes. The person who predicts the most winners with a $50 ballot will win $1000 in cash, compliments of theRIVERHEADPROJECT, a two-night stay at the Hyatt Place Long Island East End, a $100 Tanger Factory Outlet Centers gift card and a free colonoscopy, compliments of PBMC. The free ballot champion will receive dinner for four with theRIVERHEADPROJECT's Chef Lia Fallon
and a free colonoscopy, compliments of PBMC.
To help raise awareness and funds for National Colorectal Cancer Awareness, theRIVERHEADPROJECT, Bistro 72
, and the Suffolk Theatre have added "Bottoms Up" to their drink menu for March. Other East End restaurants are expected to join, and all proceeds will be donated to Peconic Bay Medical Center.
