LOS ANGELES, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- The 20th annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised $5.25 million for the fight against HIV/AIDS, organizers said Monday.

John and his husband David Furnish served as hosts of Sunday's gala at West Hollywood Park in Los Angeles.

The list of stars who turned out for the dinner, cocktails and auction was headed by Academy Award-winning Best Actor Jean Dujardin.

The pop band Foster the People performed their hits "Pumped Up Kicks," "Helena Beat" and "Don't Stop (Color on the Walls)" at the event.
