On Sunday, February 22, 2009, guests experienced the thrills and surprises of the 81st Academy Awards® at Providence’s Oscar Night® America party to benefit the American Diabetes Association. The black-tie optional event was held at the Federal Reserve Building with red carpet arrivals covered live by ABC6.
Once again, this event in Providence was one of only 52 official parties throughout the country sanctioned by the Academy to host an official Oscar® telecast viewing party on Oscar Night.
