The Elton John AIDS Foundation is hosting its annual 2017 Oscars party on Sunday, and Gossip Cop has all the photos from the famed event. Check out the gallery of pictures below!

The bash, hosted by John and his husband David Furnish, is one of the most high-profile Oscars after-parties. Now in its 25th year, the evening is designed as a viewing party for those stars not attending the Academy Awards. Following the Oscars ceremony, it then becomes a star-studded after-party.

The event also serves as a fundraiser for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which actively supports HIV/AIDS care, prevention, and awareness. John created the foundation in 1992 after losing a number of close friends to the disease, and then threw its first Oscars party the next year. Money is raised for the foundation from the sale of tickets, which can reach up to $100,000 for the most exclusive tables, as well as from a charity auction that takes place during the event. This year’s biggest items up for auction are a 13.1-carat diamond necklace by Bulgari and an extravagant five-day vacation at Steven Tyler’s home in Maui. Last year’s party raised a record breaking $6.3 million.

The event is taking place in West Hollywood, and celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has created the menu and meals once again. Soul band St. Paul and the Broken Bones is set to take the stage. Check out the photos below from John’s Oscars bash!
