New York, NY (Top40 Charts / Elton John AIDS Foundation) Sir Elton John and David Furnish will host the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF)'s 26th annual Academy Awards Viewing Party on Sunday, March 4, 2018, at West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles. BVLGARI is the gala event's generous Presenting Sponsor.

This year, through the support of EJAF's friends at BBVA Compass, the Roca Brothers of the Michelin three-star restaurant El Celler de Can Roca in Girona, Spain, will design and prepare a sumptuous dinner for Party guests to enjoy while watching a live telecast of the 90th Academy Awards. El Celler de Can Roca has been among the top three restaurants on the influential World's 50 Best Restaurants list from Restaurant magazine the past three years, claiming the top spot in 2015. Alexander Gilkes of Paddle8 will return to conduct the evening's highly anticipated live auction. Illusionist David Jarre will make a special appearance, and the event concludes with dancing until dawn with DJ Johnny Dynell.

The Foundation is excited to announce that one of 2017's newest breakout bands Greta Van Fleet will be the evening's special guest performers. Greta Van Fleet features four young musicians, three brothers and their best friend, who are producing exciting, high-energy rock-n-roll. Hailing from the tiny Michigan hamlet of Frankenmuth, the four were raised on their parents' extensive vinyl collections and were encouraged to be creative, daring, and innovative. Identified by Rolling Stone as one of their "10 New Artists You Need to Know," Greta Van Fleet's debut single "Highway Tune" was #1 for five consecutive weeks on the Mainstream (Billboard) Rock Radio charts, amassed 10-million-plus Spotify plays, and the music video has hit more than 6.8 million views since its April release. All 42 headline dates for the band's first U.S. tour had sold out in advance. We're excited to welcome Greta Van Fleet to our Oscar-night event.

EJAF's Academy Awards Viewing Party is the most highly visible and successful fundraising event in Hollywood on Oscar night. Over the past quarter century, this annual event has raised more than $62 million, thanks to the generosity of EJAF's supporters. These funds help the Foundation to make a real difference in the lives of people at risk for or living with HIV/AIDS, including urgently needed medical care in the Caribbean, innovative treatment and prevention programs in the Southern United States, and national initiatives addressing the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the United States, Canada, and Latin America.

BBVA Compass, TheBLUEFISH, and M∙A∙C Viva Glam have partnered with EJAF as the evening's Co-Sponsors; Fin Gray and Michael Melnick and Guy and Lisa Ruffin are Associate Sponsors. Champagne will be provided courtesy of Hatt et Söner, wines by Domaine Bertaud Belieu, and spirits by Chopin Vodka and Clase Azul Tequila. The Foundation is especially grateful to the City of West Hollywood for continued collaboration with EJAF on shared goals. American Airlines is EJAF's official airline.

This year's event co-chairs are Tim and Jane Allen, Alessandra Ambrosio, Jean-Christophe Babin, Beck, Joseph W. Blount, Boy George, Jim Carrey, Ciara, Chris Colfer, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, Cara Delevingne, John Demsey, Zooey Deschanel, Michelle Dockery, Jennifer Kelly Dominiquini, Jay Duplass, Ava DuVernay, Tracey Emin, Roland Emmerich, Frank Giustra, Fin Gray and Michael Melnick, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, Patricia Hearst, Tracey Jacobs, Allison Janney, Caitlyn Jenner, Quincy Jones, Billie Jean King and Ilana Kloss, Heidi Klum, Robert K.

ABOUT THE ELTON JOHN AIDS FOUNDATION
At EJAF, we believe AIDS can be beaten. We act on that belief by raising funds for evidence-based programs and policies, and also by speaking out with honesty and compassion about the realities of people's lives. Sir Elton John created EJAF almost 25 years ago, first in the United States in 1992 and then in the United Kingdom in 1993. Through hard work and with the help of our network of kind and generous friends and supporters, the two foundations together have raised more than $400 million over the past quarter century to combat stigma, prevent infections, provide treatment and services, and motivate governments to end AIDS. The U.S. foundation focuses its efforts on programs in the United States, the Americas, and the Caribbean, while the U.K. foundation funds HIV-related work in Europe, Asia, and Africa. Join us in speaking out, taking action, and contributing to our efforts to achieve a world without AIDS. For more information, please visit www.ejaf.org.

ABOUT BVLGARI
2014 marked the 130th year of Bulgari, a name emblematic of Italian excellence. Emboldened by 2,700 years of Roman history, Bulgari honors its rich past with modern designs. Known for stylistic audacity and a penchant for color, Bulgari pieces are immediately recognizable. Designing with the sensuality of volume, a love of linearity and a reverence for the art and architecture of Bulgari's Greek and Roman roots, these iconic features are found in each of Bulgari's creations. Harmonized with Rome's ancient history, Bulgari incorporates the city's symbolism while innovating its design for the future. Classic yet contemporary, Bulgari upholds its 130-year legacy with a timeless sense of exquisite beauty.

Originating in Rome, Bulgari was founded as a jewelry shop in 1884 by Greek silversmith Sotirio Bulgari. With passionate skill and vision, he set the stage for Bulgari to become a permanent emblem of Italian excellence. For the 130 years thereafter, Bulgari's ceaseless creativity, formidable history of innovation and a bold pioneering spirit led the jewelry House to become a legend. Bulgari is a name that has become synonymous with artisanal craftsmanship, avant-garde materials and unrivalled design. The Eternal City's architectural beauty has long inspired the Italian jeweler: Bulgari reinterprets the majestic symbols of Rome with extraordinary editions of jewelry, watches, accessories and perfumes.
