By on Aug 1, 2014 in AANA | 0 comments

Greetings, TANA members!  The AANA Foundation has asked us to advise you of a few upcoming events to be held at the AANA 2014 Nurse Anesthesia Annual Congress.  We hope you’ll support all of their efforts! Orlando – The Stars Come Out Again Last year the AANA Foundation hosted Vegas – The Stars Come Out At Night, and it was a huge success.  This year in Orlando they are once again hosting a CRNA/SRNA talent competition, Orlando – The Stars Come Out Again, on Sunday, September 14, 2014.  Click here to view the event flyer which has more information, including sponsorship details. AANA Foundation’s 17th Annual Golf Tournament In addition to the talent event, the AANA Foundation is also hosting the 17th Annual Golf Tournament on Friday, September 12, with a 1:30 pm tee off.  Tennessee Association of Nurse Anesthetists members have supported the golf tournament in the past, and AANA is anticipating our participation again this year.  Please consider sponsoring or donating an item for the goodie bags or raffle. See the event flyer and for more info and the event site for the sponsorship form for state associations and members. AANA Foundation Photo Booth at Annual Banquet – Fun, New Sponsorship Opportunity Something new that the Foundation is trying this year is a photo booth in the hall outside of the entrance to the Annual Banquet.  It will be available on September 16 between 5:30 and 11:30 pm (closed from 7 – 9 pm during the program/dinner hour).  During that time, couples, groups, or individuals can get their photo taken, with each participant receiving a copy, for a $20 donation to the Foundation.  A sponsorship of $1,000 would cover the cost of this photo booth and earn recognition for our state association in the form of signage at the photo booth and the ability to have a TANA representative present to welcome guests and solicit photo participants. To learn more about these events, or to express an interest in sponsorship, please use the contact information below.  All sponsorship forms must be submitted by August 15, 2014, in order for sponsors’ information to appear in printed materials.
