Excitement is high for the 2013 edition of First Look for Charity, when it moves to Friday. Celebrate longer into the evening, too, on a show floor the will stay open till 11 p.m. With the workweek over, Friday Night, Green Light!
Stroll the show floor amid opulence, with first-rate hors d'oeuvres and beverages, and tap your toes to entertainment by Million Dollar Quartet and American English. Not enough? Two attendees will win the event's grand prizes: a 2013 Buick Encore and a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe.
The redesigned Santa Fe showcases the brand's cutting-edge capabilities through its bold design, impressive fuel economy and a host of features to delight drivers and passengers with high expectations for functionality and comfort. It comes in five-passenger and seven-passenger versions.
Buick's all-new Encore is a luxury small crossover that delivers Buick's signature style, interior acoustic refinement and collection of luxury amenities in a maneuverable, versatile and efficient package. It reaches dealership showrooms in early 2013.
And enjoy entertainment by American English and "Million Dollar Quartet." The latter is the smash-hit musical inspired by the famed recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins for the first and only time. American English, widely regarded as the finest Beatles tribute band, performs songs from the entire career of the Beatles with precise attention to musical detail, along with costume changes, vintage instruments, and special effects.
