BAR HARBOR – Tonight’s the night for great prizes, fabulous food and a fun time! Oscar Night at Reel Pizza in Bar Harbor is a fun evening to benefit the Jesup Memorial Library on Sunday, March 2. A pre-Oscars party starts at 6 p.m. at Reel Pizza.
Tickets are $15 per person or $25 per couple. They can be purchased at the Reel Pizza box office.
As the beneficiary of Oscar Night, the Jesup is planning a grand party with food donated by local restaurants, chefs and caterers, a complimentary glass of champagne, fun and great prizes starting at 6 p.m. on March 2. The top prize is a $150 gift certificate in the shoulder season at the Mira Monte Inn and a gift certificate to Mama DiMatteo’s restaurant, two tickets to the Bar Harbor Whale Watch’s Whales & Puffins Tour, two tickets for a kayaking tour with Aquaterra Advenures, a $250 gift certificate from Coston & McIsaac for tax preparation services, and other prizes.
A silent auction will feature three movie-themed mixed media collages from Ernie’s Sculptures. Raffle tickets will be on sale for $1 each or six for $5 to win one of six great bundles of books. And door prizes will be given out throughout the evening. There will also be prizes awarded for best evening wear, best movie costume and best Maine chic outfit (fleece and boots, for instance).
Doors open at 6 p.m. – walk the red carpet in your finest evening wear, movie costume or dress fleece. Prizes will be given for best male and best female in each category. Emcee for the evening is Mike Bonsey and he’ll keep things hopping. There will be entertainment and contests until 7:30 p.m. when the red carpet arrivals at the Oscars will be broadcast live on the big screen at Reel Pizza. Contests and entertainment will continue during commercial breaks. We’ll be there until the last Oscar, and the last prize from the Jesup, is given out.
Stay as long or as little as you like, but come out for a great night and a great cause.
