Academy Awards Celebration to Feature Signature Orange Carpet Arrivals

In celebration of the 87th annual Academy Awards, Trio Restaurant in Palm Springs will host the sixth annual “Hollywood’s Biggest Night” to benefit AIDS Assistance Program (AAP) at 4:30 pm on Sunday, February 22, 2015. The glittering evening will include signature ‘orange’ carpet arrivals featuring a group of paparazzo, and a special greeting from dynamic hostess and local celebrity, Bella da Ball. The Oscars® pre-show and awards presentations will be viewed on special screens throughout Trio’s bar and restaurant areas.

“Year after year, this continues to be a magical evening of dining, drinks, and the greatest awards show on earth,” says Tony Marchese, co-owner of Trio. “Starting with the walk down the orange carpet and the flashbulbs going off as guests arrive, the energy in the room is electric and the excitement builds as we wait with anticipation for each winner to be announced. Everyone has such a wonderful time, and every year is more entertaining than the last.”
