County Film Commission
If you love movies, you've likely been to a Monterey County Film Commission "Big Night Gala" — their annual celebration of film-making and the Academy Awards Fundraiser they've held for the past 21 years. In 2012, they proposed a different idea: Stay at home with Oscar! Instead of all the expense of going out (new dresses, shoes, tuxes, limos, ticket prices), it was suggested that you stay at home and watch the Academy Awards in the comfort of your home and consider making a contribution directly to their non-profit organization — your donation went to a good cause that worked to boost the local economy in communities through on-location film production.
