SANDY KASTEL
HOSTS MEET & GREET FOR CHILDRENS MIRACLE NETWORK AND
MAKES HER FIRST LAS VEGAS CONCERT APPEARANCE AT
THE SUNCOAST HOTEL AND CASINO

October 24 was a typically action packed day for Las Vegas based singer Sandy Kastel, who participated in two major events for Childrens Miracle Network, the alliance of premier hospitals for children. In the morning, the recording artist and NHRA five-time division champion David Rampy hosted their second Meet & Greet of 2007 for CMN at St. Rose Dominican Hospital in Henderson. Rampy brought along two of his racecars and his trailer, lettered-up, for the children to enjoy, just as he did the last time they visited in April. The two also signed photos and posters and gave away sample CDs of Kastels new album This Time Around.

In the evening, she starred in A Tribute to Las Vegas with Recording Artist Sandy Kastel and Legendary Comedian Pete Barbutti at the Suncoast Hotel and Casino. The beautifully costumed and choreographed musical spectacular included the singers performances of classic songs that truly define the city. Among these were Fever, Beyond The Sea, All Of Me, Over The Rainbow and Danke Schoen.

After a rousing introduction by Lifestyles Of The Rich and Famous Icon (and Las Vegas resident) Robin Leachwho also educated the audience about CMN--Kastel, a former Miss Nevada, performed with a 14-piece big band conducted by Bobby Rozario, famed for his work with Darin, Tony Orlando and Vic Damone. The show also featured dancers choreographed by Angelo Moio, a onetime dancer with Ann Margret and Juliet Prowse.

The evening was a success for both the Children's Miracle Network and Kastel as there wasn't an empty seat in the showroom. Many stayed after the show to meet and get their cds signed by Kastel. The most asked question of the evening from her fans was, 'When will you be performing here again?"

The singers performance was the centerpiece of an exciting evening that raised money for CMN. Proceeds from the pre-show silent auction will go directly to the network. The approximately 20 items up for auction included jewelry, artwork and sports memorabilia. Items won in the auction included a Randall Cunningham autographed football, Foto-facial Treatment with Dr. Taylor, Epicuran Skin Care Products from esthetician Miki Ho-Tack, Body Training with Cobette Harper, Massage & Facial from Nannette Fader, Chair Massage Series from Chair Massage of Southern Nevada, Pilates Series from Taylor Made Pilates, Jewelry from Alter's Gem & Jewelry, Changes Day Spa Gift Certificate, Joy Perfume from Margie Gerrard of Vegas Rocks with Meg, dinners for two from Bella Luna, Bertolini's, Tuscany Grill, Two Night stay at Marriott Residence Inn, Personal Assistant Services with Time 4 You, Two Night Stay and dinner at Primo's from the Suncoast Hotel & Casino and artwork by local artists, Tanja Nikolic, Terry Ritter and Paula Thompson.

SANDY’S SONG TRIBUTE DAZZLES FOR CHILDRENS’ CHARITY

It’s a long busy day for former Miss Nevada, singer Sandy Kastel–but she’s pumped for the ride because it’s all to benefit her favorite Children’s Miracle Network charity.

This morning, hometown Sandy, described as a modern-day Ann-Margaret, and best-friend, five-time world champion racer David Rampy will visit our St. Rose Dominican Hospital where many children are receiving much needed treatment thanks to the Children’s Miracle Network. Then tonight I’ll join Sandy and comedian Pete Barbutti as guest host of a special tribute concert she’ll star in up at the Suncoast hotel and casino. Sandy will sing from her new standards debut, This Time Around backed by a 14-piece big-band orchestra and a dance troupe. During the intermission, David, who with 68 race wins is now in the Top 10 drag-racers in the world, will be special auctioneer of jewelry, artwork and race memorabilia to raise even more funds for the kids. Tomorrow, Sandy will be cheering on her David Rampy-sponsored team for the fourday NHRA Championship Drag Racing Event on the Summerlin Expressway that continues through Sunday.
