The Utah AIDS Foundation is gearing up for the state's largest Academy Awards gathering. "Reel Love," its seventh annual Oscar Night Gala, will be held Monday night at the Utah State Fairpark's Grand Building, 155 N. 1000 West.

The yearly gala, the organization's second-largest fund-raising event, has drawn as many as 2,000 people, and it has all the makings of a grand Hollywood premiere, said Barbara Shaw, the foundation's executive director."(It) offers Utahns the opportunity to contribute to the fight against HIV and AIDS while enjoying the glitter of the Academy Awards at the same time," she said.

This year's gala begins at 6 p.m. and will include a live telecast of the 70th Annual Academy Awards, a full catered dinner, a silent auction and the big band sound of Joe Muscolino and his orchestra.

Tickets for the event are $45 per person, $360 for a table of eight or $1,000 for corporate tables. They are available from all Smith'sTix locations or by calling the Utah AIDS Foundation at 487-2323.
