Cheryl Cecchetto to Produce Academy's 2012 Governors Ball

Beverly Hills, CA (February 16, 2012) –Special events producer Cheryl Cecchetto, for the 23rd consecutive year, has been chosen to produce the Governors Ball, the celebration that will follow the 84th Academy Awards® presentation on Oscar® Sunday, February 26, 2012.

Cecchetto, along with her Sequoia Productions team, will work with Governors Ball Chair Jeffrey Kurland to manage every detail pertaining to the event, including décor, entertainment, food and personnel.

"This year's design not only complements the theme of the Ball, but also is a chic and simple canvas for intimate conversations and freedom of movement," said Cecchetto. "Guests will experience Wolfgang Puck's tasting menu and the evening's musical entertainment with a backdrop of relaxed glamour."

The Academy's 2012 Governors Ball will be held in the Grand Ballroom, on the top level of the Hollywood & Highland Center®.

Sequoia Productions recently produced the 2012 G'Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala; later this year, Sequoia will be returning as the producer of the 64th Annual Emmy® Awards Governors Ball.

Academy Awards for outstanding film achievements of 2011 will be presented on Sunday, February 26, at the Kodak Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, and televised live by the ABC Television Network beginning at 4 p.m. PT/7 p.m. ET. The Oscar presentation also will be televised live in more than 225 countries worldwide.
