08/15/11 - StarNight attendees meet headliner Kenny Rogers
StarNight 2011 was a night to remember, filled with great dining, music and dancing at the Chattanooga Convention Center. Kenny Rogers put on an incredible show, featuring a blend of classic songs like "Lucille," "The Gambler" and "Islands in the Stream" and new music from his most recent album. The show was much more than a musical performance; Kenny engaged the crowd, telling personal stories about his years in the entertainment business and dedicating a song to his wife Wanda, who was in the audience, and to their seven year old twin sons Justin and Jordan. In a move reminiscent of Kenny's 2004 StarNight appearance, the entertainer rolled off 15 $100 bills as a donation to the Institute for each song that a hand-picked StarNight guest recognized.
Several StarNight 2011 attendees met Kenny Rogers before the show. The photos are included on the Meet and Greet page of Kenny's official website.
