The Milford Arts Council and Eastbound Theatre will host its third annual Red Carpet Gala on Sunday, Feb. 22, at 7 p.m., in honor of the 87th Academy Award ceremony.

The event takes place at The Center for the Arts, 40 Railroad Avenue.

Admission is $30 per person, with all proceeds to benefit the Milford Arts Council. Call  203-878-6647 to make a reservation.

The event has sold out its first two years and has become a highlight of the Milford Arts Council’s annual schedule.

Black tie suggested, although elegant creative options are welcome.

The event will begin at 7 p.m. with a cocktail hour featuring a cash wine and martini bar. Appetizers are included in the cost of admission.

Prior to the telecast on the Center for the Arts’ giant projection screen, party-goers will have the opportunity to place their ballots to guess the winners, bid on silent auctions, participate in a 50/50 raffle, and enjoy entertaining audience games and other surprises.

The event is sponsored by Ultimate Interiors of Milford.
