Among this year’s glittering Oscar night galas, designer Sue Wong delivered yet another heady combo of resplendent Asian Chic among a cast of stars served with her own signature flair in the uber-elegant Taglyan Complex in Hollywood. The “Living Canvas of Oscar Night” showcased a glamorous selection of fashion and entertainment offerings designed to inspire the spirit through art, philanthropy, and spirituality.
Although it was an evening of multiple awards, a major winner was Project Angel Food, a nonprofit that delivers 15,000 nutritious meals each week to those affected by life-threatening illnesses in Los Angeles. With more than 300 guests in attendance, The Sue Wong Academy Gala stunned the audience with an Iconic retrospective fashion show and awe-inspiring performances by Shaolin Temple monks accompanied by female drummers who electrified the entire event. Project Angel Food’s CEO Richard Ayoub was honored with the Humanitarian of the Year award, as well as Christine Devine with the Broadcast Icon Award, Nigel Daly with the British Icon Award, and many more.
This year the Sue Wong Academy Gala awarded Project Angel Food.
“What a night to remember,” said Scott Page, saxophone and rhythm guitarist for Pink Floyd. “The fashion, location, entertainment, and atmosphere brought people together on Oscar night in a way that no one else could. Sue Wong is a host unlike any other!”
