Metro goes for ‘gold’
The Annual Academy Awards are upon us March 2, and what better way to celebrate the best of Hollywood than with a fundraising party on the beach? Metro Wellness and Community Centers will host its first ever Oscar party, dubbed The Gold Party, at the Bilmar Beach Resort on Treasure Island. Tickets include food, drinks, a red-carpet entrance and, of course, the broadcast of the awards show hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. Money raised from ticket sales benefit the organization’s new LGBT Welcome/Youth Center set to open on Central Avenue this summer. Sponsors of the party include Watermark, Creative Loafing, Georgie’s Alibi, TIGLFF, Balance Tampa Bay and more. Tickets are available at MetroTampaBay.org.
Jorge’s big party
Jorge Alvarado is bringing back his newest season of his talk show in a big way—with an all out party and live recording at Hamburger Mary’s in Clearwater on March 1 and March 4, respectively. The fabulous host of The Jorge Show will host VIPs on March 1 to celebrate the launch of his second season on the air. And on March 4, he’ll record his season premiere at the same location to be shown Friday, March 7, on Channel 32. The show discusses celebrities, fashion and local events and is not surrounded by other paid programming. The show premiered last January on the Tampa Bay Community Network. This will be the first season to broadcast on WMOR TV and Estrella-TV. For details, check out TheJorgeShow.com.
