Watch: Elton John Oscar Party Preps
at 2:55 PM
ET goes behind the scenes of the ultra glamorous Elton John Oscar party.
The exclusive event is a coveted invitation in Hollywood, where A-Listers come together to celebrate a good cause. As Director of the Elton John AIDS Foundation Scott Campbell tells ET, the benefit party is important because it is one of the top donators to HIV/AIDS projects around the world. The organization has raised over $175 million since they were founded 18 years ago — this year they expect to raise between $3.5-5 million.
“Our theme and focus always remains the same, which is to do the best we can to raise as much money [as possible] to support the issue of HIV and help us to expand our ability to support projects around the world,” Campbell said.
Grace Jones will be performing, while expected guests include Victoria Beckham, the cast of "Glee," medalists from the Vancouver Winter Olympics, Joe Jonas, Betty White and many more.
