    More than 250 expected guests will be treated to a great cocktail hour, a fashion show, red-carpet interviews by 6 ABC reporters, and a chance to win beautiful diamond earrings in our 'diamondtini' contest. Guests will enjoy an elegant dinner while watching the Oscar broadcast; bid on a fantastic array of silent auction items; participate in a live auction; and be eligible for a "Guess the Winner" contest for two tickets to next year's gala.
