This year’s Oscar Night event marks the first time the New York party will benefit a charity and celebrate the New York Film Industry. That organization, FilmAid International, uses the power of film and video to reach the world’s most vulnerable communities and refugee camps with messages that inspire, address critical shared needs and effect social change.[ Also Visit: RMN Company – Connecting Communities ]
