Coweta’s annual “Come Fly to the Oscars” event Feb. 24 will benefit the Newnan/ Coweta Boys & Girls Club.

The Boys & Girls Club Board is inviting local community members to attend the gala 7-11 p.m. at Newnan-Coweta Airport, Whitlock Field, 45 Ansley Drive, Newnan.

Sponsorship packages are still available online at www.cowetaoscarnight.com .

Proceeds from the “Red Carpet” event support the local club and its activities, which include oratorical contests, youth of the year contests and summer programs. Tickets are $110 — available at Bank of Coweta on Jefferson Street and SouthTowne Motors.

“This year, in addition to ‘the big screens,’ we are excited that the event will feature a 17-piece jazz band, The Peachtree Jazz Edition,” said Minesh Amin, Boys & Girls Club Board chair and committee member for Come Fly to the Oscars.

Community members are invited to come walk the red carpet into a space transformed by glowing candlelight, music and champagne. Have your picture taken by the “paparazzi” photographer and enjoy an evening of dinner and dancing, and bid on rare finds at the silent auction.
