Stars Come Out for Peanuts

Cindy Zimmerman2009 ConferenceLeave a Comment

The Southern Peanut Growers Conference rolled out the red carpet Tuesday night for the stars of the peanut industry.

The first ever Peanut Oscar awards night and dinner was sponsored by our good friends at Syngenta, who got into the spirit of the evening by coming dressed as some of their favorite stars. Oscars were handed out for best humanitarian, actor, actress, dancers, documentary, and much more. I will have details in later posts.

Between the peanut group staff members and Syngenta sales reps, we had a great bunch of stars on hand – many you just thought were dead! We saw every one from Mae West and W.C. Fields, to Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, to Elvis and yes, even Michael Jackson! It was really a lot of fun and these people deserve a big round of applause for the work they did to make this a very memorable event. Click on the group shot for a closer look.

The entire conference has been immortalized once again in photos. Make sure to check out all 651 of them on the Flickr Photo Peanut Family Album. Any photo on the site can be easily downloaded by clicking on it, then choosing “all sizes” and then right click to download.

I will be doing a few more posts on the site this week and probably adding some other photos as well, so be sure to check back for more.
