Vanity Fair Reveals Oscar Week Events to Benefit ACLU, More Charities

“Campaign Hollywood essentially takes over Hollywood the week before the Oscars, not just to celebrate the year’s biggest talents and brightest stars, but also to support a range of amazing charities, which is something we’re especially proud of,” said Vanity Fair chief business officer Chris Mitchell.

Vanity Fair is once again putting a big stamp on Oscar week.

The mag has revealed the calendar for Campaign Hollywood — the annual weeklong celebration leading up to the Academy Awards, returning for an 18th time to benefit a different charity each night while highlighting standout films and stars from this year's awards season.

Charity beneficiaries of the events include St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the Roar Foundation Shambala Preserve, the American Civil Liberties Union and others. (The ACLU is also receiving money from UTA, which scrapped its annual party in favor of a pre-Oscar rally at its Beverly Hills headquarters.)

Barneys New York is back for a fourth year as Campaign Hollywood’s premier luxury retail partner, while L’Oréal Paris and Lancôme are returning for their 12th and fifth years, respectively, as the beauty partners. First-timer Genesis is on board as automotive sponsor, providing luxury transportation and experiences for VIP guests while Dom Pérignon will be the exclusive champagne partner.

“Campaign Hollywood essentially takes over Hollywood the week before the Oscars, not just to celebrate the year’s biggest talents and brightest stars, but also to support a range of amazing charities, which is something we’re especially proud of,” said Vanity Fair chief business officer Chris Mitchell.
