Hospice to host ‘Night at the Oscars’

By Staff | Feb 20, 2015

Hospice of the Panhandle’s first-ever Night at the Oscars, set for Friday, Feb. 20, at the Bavarian Inn, will feature a chance to spend a week at a premier home in Naples, Fla., two 50-yard-line seats for a Baltimore Ravens game and four tickets for WVU’s final home basketball game of the season.

Proceeds from the event will support services at Hospice of the Panhandle, a 35-year-old not-for-profit agency that cares for families and patients who suffer life-limiting illness. Hospice serves Berkeley, Jefferson, Morgan and Hampshire counties.

The event is the first Oscars party that Hospice has hosted. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. and lasts until 10:30 p.m. The band, SV Jazz, out of Winchester, Virginia, will play big band and show tunes throughout the evening. Well-known auctioneer Marty Kable will host a live auction. A host of live and silent auction items including paintings by Shepherdstown artist Doug Kinnett, a sapphire and diamond ring donated by Bechdel Jewelers and a Dooney and Bourke purse will be available.

“We are very excited to be hosting this event for Hospice,” said David Asam, one of the owners of the Bavarian Inn, as well as a Hospice board member. “We think the Night at the Oscars will become a signature event that the community will get excited about and support in a large way.”

A limited amount of tickets remain available. Tickets cost $100 per person, and sponsorships of $500, $1,000, $2,500 and $5,000 also are available.

“Movie buffs are just going to love the Night at the Oscars – there will be champagne, a red carpet, paparazzi and lots of movie memorabilia decorating the inn’s banquet room, as well as a great band to play show tunes,” Asam said.
