Miami Beach’s Official Oscar Night® Party to Benefit Miami Beach Film Society

MIAMI BEACH, FL (PRWEB) February 25, 2004 –

– You don’t have to live in Hollywood to experience the magic and excitement of this year’s Oscar Night when the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences stages its 76th Academy Awards Presentation on Sunday, February 29th, 2004. Residents of South Florida can join in the festivities by attending Miami’s exclusive Academy-sanctioned Oscar Night® America Party.

Benefiting Miami Beach Film Society, this year’s celebration will be held at Tantra Restaurant & Lounge, one of South Beach’s most acclaimed hot-spots. Attendees will watch a live telecast of the Academy Awards on large screens while enjoying fine dining and cocktails amidst the exotic décor of the restaurant (Cocktails 7:30 pm Dinner 8:30 pm).

Broadcasting for the event is courtesy of WPLG-10, the Miami affiliate of the ABC Television Network. ABC and the Academy are cooperating for the eleventh year with local charities around the country to create these official Oscar Night viewing parties. This year marks the fifth year that Miami has been officially sanctioned by the Academy to host the event.

The Academy will make available to party guests in South Florida the same official program distributed to guests attending the live showing in Hollywood. “Oscar Night generates excitement all over the world,” said Event Producer Paolo Sadri. “With the Academy’s help, our guests will feel like they are part of the A-list. We had an incredibly enthusiastic turnout last year. We hope to raise even more money for Miami Beach Film Society this year.”

“Watching the Academy Awards Show is one of the great American traditions,” said Academy Executive Director Bruce Davis. “Since the public can’t come to Los Angeles to attend the Awards Presentation, we created Oscar Night America, which allows these local parties to tie into the excitement of Oscar Night and to support some very worthy causes.” All the money raised stays in the community; none of it goes to the Academy.

All the proceeds from Oscar Night® America Miami Beach will benefit Miami Beach Film Society. MBFS is a non-profit organization that presents cutting-edge film in innovative ways on Miami Beach. MBFS combines film with other important aspects of Miami Beach culture such as the utilization of the celebrated architecture, the strong restaurant industry presence, Miami Beach history, and collaboration with other cultural institutions. For more information on the Miami Beach Film Society, please contact Barbara Pergament at (305) 673-4567.

The 5th Annual Oscar Night® America Miami Beach event is sponsored by Regal Entertainment Group, luce, Channel 10 News, BellSouth, Niebaum~Coppola, i-bella romance, The Sports Club/LA, Bud Light, Bacardi Silver, Herbn Love, Absolut Vodka, USA Bouquet, FIJI water, Sandals Resorts, and Bahia Tony Borhani.

Quebec City, Quebec (PRWEB) December 15, 2011

Even as apps, consoles, e-readers, iPads, Xboxes and Wii systems abound, the 21st century kid still seems to love his or her traditional toys, according to, and thousands of elves will be keeping their jobs this Christmas. Thats the good news.

In other news, an unusual number of Canadians will find a gift-wrapped refrigerator sitting under the tree this year, too, and thousands of appliance manufacturers and suppliers may keep their jobs this Christmas as well.

With one week left, Canadians are coming online to Shopbot in waves to wrap up their holiday shopping, and more than a few are buying refrigerators. Searches for the appliance are five times higher than any previous 30-day period this year, and over 4% of those searches are converting to sales.

We cant explain it, but people are gifting appliances this year, says Shopbot National Sales Director Ashley Bienvenu. With hundreds of products on offer by Home Depot, Sears and Staples, Shopbot customers are putting a bow on everything from mini-fridges for the office to wine chillers and full-size stainless steel kitchen refrigerators.

The uptick in searches for traditional toys also is noteworthy, particularly as Toys R Us launched a uniquely Canadian e-commerce offering in November and is now among the more than 300 retailers marketing their products through

Consumer searches for computers, electronics and video games is generally on pace with our expectations for holiday season shopping, but traffic to and through our toys product category has tripled since October, says Bienvenu. Canadian kids are asking for dolls and board games.

Lifted by conversion rates of up to 6%, and perhaps possessed by the enthusiasm for unwired play time, toy retailers are responding with additional incentives for traditional gift givers, such as free and flat shipping rates nationwide for purchases through the holidays.

With sales projected to increase even further in the rush to Christmas, retailers still debating whether to introduce an online offering in Canada stand to miss out big time, says Bienvenu. is Canadas premier online bargain shopping engine. Launched in 2004 and specifically tailored to connect discerning Canadian consumers with competitive Canadian retailers, Shopbot utilizes its own award-winning product search technology to surface the most relevant results for customers and the lowest prices.
