Be Entertained at the Red Carpet Gala on February 25th!

Are you a cinema buff? Do you sit at home watching the Oscars wishing you could be ON the red carpet with your favorite celebs instead of sitting on your couch envying the gowns and glitz from afar? What if you could party like a celebrity right here in Lynchburg? We are here to make that wish come true! UWCV will be hosting our 2nd annual Red Carpet Gala at the Academy Center of the Arts the day before the Academy Awards Ceremony this year- so you won’t miss a minute of the big show! We have SO many Oscar-worthy additions to our event this year and we can’t wait to glam it up with you! Here is some of the entertainment you can look forward to on the big night: We will be dancing the night away with The Dundies. This dreamy local band delivers popular tunes sure to get your feet moving on the dance floor.  Tying right into our Community Impact focus here at UWCV, our Education Readiness Initiative, we will also have a special performance by the sweet children of Forest Dance Academy. This dance group will be performing “Straight Outta Aaaahz”, an adaptation of the 1940 Oscar Winner, The Wizard of Oz. A big thanks to Marcia Thom-Kaley for working behind the scenes for the past few weeks putting together dance performances from the Oscar nominated films of 2017! A little throwback to one of our popular events, Feeeenominal Follies. Stay tuned for more Red Carpet Gala magic in the weeks to come. It will be a night you DO NOT want to miss!...
