Local Pastor's Wife to be spotlighted at oscar party

January 25, 2019

HENDERSONVILLE, Tenn.- Amidst the glam of the Oscars weekend celebrating the 91st Academy Awards in February, a Hendersonville Pastor’s wife, and founder of Love From Music City (LFMC) Charity, Shanda Tripp, accepted an invitation to the Fourth Annual ROGER NEAL OSCAR VIEWING DINNER, SUITE AND AFTER PARTY. The event will take place on Oscar Sunday, February 24th, 2019 at the World Famous, Hollywood Palladium.

The Academy Awards viewing dinner is a sit-down, black tie, white glove service, five course dinner experience for the stars, their guests, sponsors, and ticket buyers. It has become one of the hottest “by invitation only” parties with over 100 celebrities expected and 600 dinner guests.

“Our event for 2019 will be our biggest yet…” “…the After Party will have live entertainment and we’ll see nominees and winners from the Oscars stopping by to celebrate with us.” Neal said.

Traditionally, Neal’s annual Oscar Viewing Dinner Party also brings awareness and raises funds for charitable foundations. During the glamorous event, Tripp’s, LFMC non-profit organization will be one of four beneficiaries receiving a donation check from Roger & Lynn Neal and partners, Maryanne and Thomas Lai. 

LFMC is a charity focusing on orphans in Haiti, Foster Children in Middle Tennessee and our local Veterans. They fight hunger, shelter the homeless, promote education and establish orphanages. Tripp personally rescued two infants from trash heaps in Haiti by bringing them home to Tennessee for the urgent medical attention they so desperately needed. LFMC also partners with local businesses to host an annual LFMC Christmas Party providing toys, dinner and a night of fun for Sumner County Foster Children and their Foster Families.

When asked why LFMC was chosen as one of his beneficiaries at this Hollywood event, Neal said, “We approached Shanda Tripp because of her philanthropic work with innocent children who suffer here in our own country as well as those in desperate situations in Haiti. We found that her vision to advance community through humanitarian activities perfectly aligns with the underlying mission of who we would like to see benefit from the Roger Neal Oscar Viewing Dinner and After Party. We hope that others will be inspired to become perpetually involved in the charities that are chosen each year.”
