WEST HOLLYWOOD — For the 16th consecutive year, The Abbey Food & Bar will host its annual Oscar viewing party that benefits APLA Health.
The Envelope Please will take place February 26 when Abbey owner David Cooley will transform the West Hollywood watering hole into an intimate setting for the black-tie, fundraising event featuring a cocktail reception and seated dinner as well as a private viewing of the Academy Awards broadcast.

In its 16 years, The Envelope Please has raised almost $2 million for APLA Health, funds that annually help more than 14,000 low-income people in the LGBTQ community and people living with HIV/AIDS in Los Angeles County. APLA Health’s services include primary medical, dental, and behavioral health care, groceries from eight food pantries, access to PrEP, health insurance enrollment assistance, housing support, among others.
In a statement, APLA Health CEO Craig Thompson says The Envelope Please helps the nonprofit maintain its “continued commitment to ensuring underserved communities are able to get the care and support they need.”
