We all know the Oscars are coming up on February 29. I'm going to a girlie Oscar-viewing party with champagne and cupcakes. I'm disappointed we aren't wearing our grad dresses, but I guess the yoga gear will have to do.

But how about we make things a little more interesting?

For the second year in a row, the Nickel Film Festival is holding their Oscar Pool Prediction Fundraiser. Except this year, the prize is AMAZING.

For just $10, you can fill out a ballot and get the chance to win this prize, valued at $750:

Two of you can start your day with a cut/style from Sound Salon and Spa, pick up one dozen premium long-stem Roses, presented in a clear glass vase with exotic foliages and accent flowers from The Flower Studio, share a romantic dinner at the coveted Raymond's restaurant, enjoy movie passes for a show of your choice, top it off with a sleepover at The Franklin Hotel, with gourmet chocolates from the Newfoundland Chocolate Company for breakfast!


Only 300 ballots are printed, so hurry up! Ballots can be purchased through Ruth Lawrence, Executive Director of the Nickel, at, or call (709) 576-3378.

All ballots must be returned by Thursday, February 24th at 4 pm. The ballot with the most points for correct choices, wins. In the case of a tie, ballots with the most points will be subject to a draw. One prize will be awarded on February 28, 2011.
