Tribute for Amy Arnaz to be held Friday evening

A tribute in memory of Amy Arnaz, who died Jan. 23, will be held Friday evening.

The tribute will begin with a 5 p.m. balloon release from the gazebo at Bicentennial Park.

Those who would like to write messages on the biodegradable balloons, which were ordered especially for the tribute and donated by Post Net, are asked to arrive between 4:30-4:55 p.m.

“Miss Amy’s” daughter, Haley Arnaz, will share some thoughts about her mother just before the release.

Immediately after the balloon release, guests are invited to the Boulder Theatre for a 25-minute presentation about Arnaz’s life, which was produced by her husband, Desi Arnaz Jr., and friends of the Arnaz family. If necessary, there will be multiple showings, according to a family friend.

A reception with light refreshments will follow at the Dance Etc. studio, 525 Hotel Plaza. Anna Lawson, owner of the studio, and her staff will have costumes, photos and memorabilia to share.

BC’s Got Talent dates pushed back

The audition date and performance for the sixth annual BC’s Got Talent show have been pushed back about a month to better fit people’s schedules, according to Justin Keogh, master of ceremonies for the event.

Auditions have been rescheduled for March 21 and the show date has been changed to April 25 to avoid any conflicts with spring break, he said.

The auditions will be held by appointment only from 9 a.m. to noon at the Elaine K. Smith Center, 700 Wyoming St. There is a $10 audition fee and performances should be between 2 and 2½ minutes.

Acts of all types are encouraged to audition.

The contest is open only to Boulder City residents, with separate divisions for children and adults.

BC’s Got Talent will begin at 7 p.m. at the Boulder City Library Amphitheater. Boulder Dam Credit Union will provide all cash prizes.

For additional information or to schedule an audition appointment, call Keogh at 702-480-3615.
