Cher Madness Hits Las Vegas
Cher Convention July 12-13
Las Vegas; June 7, 2002-Want to dress up like Cher? Want to
answer Cher trivia questions in a twisted version of The Weakest Link? Want to
bid on Sonny & Cher memorabilia? Want to sing in a Cher karaoke? Want to
see Cher’s Cleopatra costume from the movie “Mermaids.” Want to (we’re
not kidding about this) participate in a seminar on Cher?
If the answer to any of these questions is in the affirmative then you need to
be at the Riviera Hotel, July 12th and 13th. This is where the serious Cher
fans from the US and at least eight other countries will gather for the Second
Cher Convention. The first convention was held in July 2000 in Chicago and it
was an overwhelming success.
Fans will be Cher-ing it up even more this year with two dinner shows, a
charity auction and all day, wall-to-wall Cher Convention activities. What
better town for a Cher convention than Las Vegas?
Funds raised at the convention will go to a great cause that also has a strong
Cher connection: the Children’s Craniofacial Association (CCA). Cher first
became involved with CCA following her award winning performance in
“Mask,” in which she played the mother of a boy born with a severe facial
disfigurement. Cher is the National Spokesperson for CCA, and often attends
the organization’s events, particularly the yearly retreat for the CCA kids
and their families. Cher also visits affected children and invites them to her
shows across the country. The convention was conceived as a unique way of
honoring Cher by supporting a cause in which she deeply believes. Additional
information about CCA can be found at www.ccakids.com <http://www.ccakids.com>.
Cher fans from around the country organize the Cher Convention. Additional
information on the convention and registration information can be obtained at
