LOS ANGELES, Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- SBE's The Abbey, Los Angeles Magazine and special host Jennifer Love Hewitt have joined forces to raise much-needed funds and awareness for AIDS Project Los Angeles (APLA) through the 7th annual "The Envelope Please" Oscar(R) viewing party.

To be held at The Abbey in West Hollywood on Sunday, February 24th, "The Envelope Please" is a black-tie cocktail and dinner event that has raised more than $1.2 million for APLA through the years. This year's fundraiser is expected to draw more than 500 guests for cocktails and a sit-down dinner featuring a menu developed by The Abbey's chef Michael Brown for the special event.

"Despite all the uncertainty surrounding the strike and the Oscar(R) telecast, the importance of this annual event has never diminished for APLA and the people we serve," said Craig E. Thompson, executive director of APLA, which is now in its 25th year of operation. "This evening has become one of the top fundraisers of the year for our organization and we are more excited than ever to roll out the red carpet for all our friends and guests on Oscar(R) night."

"Gathering with friends to watch the Academy Awards is one of my favorite traditions, and I am honored to join APLA's supporters once again for a great evening at The Abbey," said Jennifer Love Hewitt, who has hosted the event for the past four years. "We are looking forward to a memorable event with entertainment, food, and friends, and most importantly, a chance to raise much-needed funds for an important organization."

"'The Envelope Please' has become one of our best events of the year," said David Cooley, founder of The Abbey. "It is an honor to help our friends at APLA host this magical evening, and we are very proud of how we've been able to help the event grow through the years."
