Let’s get ready to…YAWMA!
There couldn’t have been a more perfect venue for the Achiever Recognition Night Denim to Diamonds Celebration than the Amway Center in beautiful downtown Orlando. Searchlights swept the sky, greeting all to a red carpet entrance!
Achievers entering the Arena immediately felt the excitement as music blasted; cheer and stunt teams wow-ed the crowd, as the new mascot “Freedom” set the stage for one amazing night. Arena fever swept through the crowd and inspired “the wave,” enthusiastic clapping, and dancing in the seats!
As Achievers took their seats, Diamonds, North American Growth Council, IBOAI and Legacy Leaders led the crowd into the arena. With house lights down and one spot on, Michael Buffer (of ring announcer renown!) opened the evening with his incomparable “Let’s get ready to rumble” style and the place erupted with cheers! Musical talent, the House Jacks, opened with a unique version of the National Anthem. Special guest iLLUMINATE created spellbinding performances that left everyone wondering, “How do they do that?”
Recognition started with the introduction of new Sapphires. Emeralds were next to cross the stage as their names were announced. Next – the parade of Diamonds: 17 new Diamonds, 11 new Founders Diamonds, 7 new Executive Diamonds, 2 new Double Diamonds, 1 new Triple Diamonds, 1 new Crown Ambassador! Special recognition was also given to Barry Chi and Holly Chen for Founders Crown Ambassador and to Dexter, Birdie, Jeff, Doyle, and Steve Yager for their new 65 FAA level. The Yager Family enjoyed a special video tribute from Rich DeVos congratulating the family on their success. What an amazing year of growth!
The evening closed with the drawing for the 2012 Corvette.
