Tolkien fan and news website TheOneRing.net wants to celebrate the final Hobbit film in style by holding The One Last Party in Los Angeles on Saturday 21st February, the day before the 7th Academy Awards. But, they need your help.
TheOneRing.net, which has been reporting film and Tolkien news for over 15 years, wants to hold a pre-Oscars party in Los Angeles in February. Previous TORn Oscar Parties saw cast and crew from the films turn up, and they hope to replicate it again with a celebratory extravaganza in February – Jed Brophy (Nori), Adam Brown (Ori) and Graham McTavish (Dwalin) are already confirmed to attend.
The Party itself is being crowdfunded via Indiegogo – so there is no risk of losing your money should the party not happen – and there are ways to support the event even if you can’t attend. As they say themselves:
This will be on Saturday 21st Feb 2015 – the day BEFORE the Oscars – at a venue in Los Angeles, TBA. There will be music, food, drink, entertainment (from William Kircher’s band The California Dreamers, celtic musicians Emerald Rose, and more) and all kinds of fun! But here’s the thing…
Like TORn itself, this party will be by fans, for fans. It’s all about YOU, dear reader! We cannot hold this event unless we raise much of the cost in advance, and therefore we are crowd-funding this special occasion, through advance ticket sales and other donation levels.
Tickets will only be available through the Indiegogo campaign, so if you want to attend the party you will need to support the campaign before all the tickets are gone. If you would like to attend or support TheOneRing.net and their huge party, visit their Indiegogo campaign.
