LAS VEGAS — The 2012 PLSN/FOH Parnelli Celebrity Classic, which will take place Thursday, Oct. 18, and the 2012 Parnelli Awards Dinner, set for Saturday, Oct. 20, may be a month away, but judging by the pace of registrations streaming in, both events could set new attendance records. To ensure that you don’t miss out, be sure to sign up for both of these sought-after events. Go to parnelliawards.com today!
The 2012 PLSN/FOH Celebrity Golf Classic promises to be a rewarding experience for everybody attending, for seasoned pros and weekend duffers alike. With dozens of fearsome foursomes hitting the links at the luxurious Arroyo Club on Oct. 18, low-score bragging rights may be elusive. But trophies will be awarded to the top three teams, and even those with the highest number of strokes won’t go home empty handed; they’ll receive a set of consolatory tennis racquets.
The golf tournament is open to industry professionals and their guests. It’s a great way to meet and network with the current leaders of our industry. Whether you play as an individual or come with a team, there are many levels for you to participate. Businesses are invited to upgrade their marketing profile at the event through hole-sponsorship packages.
In addition to cart and green fees, the golf tournament fee covers a continental breakfast, a lunch barbecue, beverages, range balls, tournament bags, framed pictures of each foursome and access to mini-clinics by golf pros. And proceeds from the event will also benefit a great cause: the Parnelli Scholarship fund, which supports the next generation of live entertainment professionals at UNLV.
The Parnelli Awards Dinner is set for the Mirage in Las Vegas on Saturday, Oct. 20. It begins with a cocktail reception at 7 pm. The dinner and awards start at 8 pm, hosted this year by Cory Wells of 3 Dog Night fame. The evening will honor Lifetime Achievement Award Winner Charlie Hernandez, Visionary Award recipient Joe Branam and Audio Innovators Dave Shadoan and (posthumously) Ross Ritto.
Sponsors for this year’s golf outing include 4Wall, Branam Enterprises, Daktronics, Precise Corporate Staging and ProCases Inc., and more sponsorship opportunities are still available.
