MORTON GROVE, Ill., Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lifeway Foods, Inc., (NASDAQ: LWAY), a leading supplier of cultured dairy products known as kefir and frozen kefir, announced today it provided its delicious kefir products to attendees of the two-day Debbie Durkin's ECO-Oscars event, held on February 22nd and 23rd.
The invitation-only event benefited WE ROCK GREEN MICS, a charitable organization that promotes literacy and artistry as methods of raising ecological awareness. This year's annual event featured a James Bond and Jamaica theme in homage to creator Ian Fleming who wrote the iconic Bond novels in that country.
Lifeway Foods was the Spotlight Sponsor of the event and presented an assortment of frozen kefir with toppings, along with certificates for free product.

Attendees of the event included Malik Bendjelloul of Oscar winner Waiting for Superman, producers of Django Unchained, and Jeremiah Bitsui of Breaking Bad.
"We sponsor many events throughout the year, but I don't know of any that provide the same amount of electricity as these pre- Oscars parties," said Julie Smolyansky, President and CEO of Lifeway Foods, Inc. "Our frozen kefir is a perfect light, but filling treat that satisfied the appetites of Oscar nominees, celebrities, and Hollywood's top behind-the-scenes players."
