Vegas – The Stars Come Out at Night
If you are planning to attend the AANA Annual Meeting, you won’t want to miss this evening of fun. This unique event will include buffet dinner, drinks, DJ, dancing, host Kenan Thompson and our very own CRNA and SRNA stars who will be performing personal talents on stage.
When and Where…
Monday, August 12, 2013, from 7:30 to 11:00 p.m.
Treasure Island Ballroom, Treasure Island Hotel, 3300 Las Vegas Boulevard South, Las Vegas
Actor and comedian, Kenan Thompson, son of Elizabeth Ann Thompson, a Georgia CRNA, will host this evening of talent and fun. Kenan is best known for his work as a cast member of NBC's long-running sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live, as well for his starring roles in the films Good Burger and Fat Albert, and his portrayal of Kenan Rockmore on the Nickelodeon sitcom, Kenan & Kel.
Applications for talent are no longer being accepted. Talent acts will be announced in May.
What to Wear…
All guests are encouraged to go all out and dress like a star or favorite celebrity. Select a specific person you’d like to portray or plan to walk the red carpet in your own personal style – whether old-Hollywood glamour or wearing one of the nude-toned dresses so popular on the red carpet at this year’s Golden Globes.
Guests will have the opportunity to vote for the CRNA/SRNA talent stars – ONE dollar equals ONE vote ("buck-a-vote
"). Winners will be announced at the end of the evening based on 1) judges' choice and 2) dollar votes received.
Tickets purchased in advance of the Annual Meeting through AANA Registration will be included in your AANA Annual Meeting Registration package. Tickets purchased after online Registration closes, if they are still available, can be picked up at the Foundation Booth onsite at the Annual Meeting.
