The Peachtree Tavern has opened their doors & hearts for this occassion & Bradley (owner & close friend of BBS), has given us permission to "girlie up" his rock n' roll venue in pink, red & white for a Valentines/heart/love theme for Lana. ...thank you to Bradley & everyone at PTT! The intimate setting will only allow 400 tickets to be sold. 400 tickets people...so please don't wait to go online and buy your ticket NOW at the links below. There will be no ticket sales at the door & this event will sell out quickly.
There will be press, video, professional photographers, a star or two (or twenty - who knows?) and Susan Cooke Pena, renowned "artist to the stars - rock and screen" has designed some custom artwork just for this event and will be there in person to sell her "Lana designs" and more! She is donating a portion of the sales from the event to the Lana Turner Cancer fund. This will make a perfect Valentines gifts for you sweetheart!
