WANADA returns to DCês Mayflower Hotel for 100th anniversary gala, April 1 no fooling

Donêt be fooled by the April 1 date. WANADAês Centennial Celebration, set for the evening of April 1 in the historic Mayflower Hotel in downtown Washington, will be a grand occasion! Founded as the Washington Automotive Trade Association in 1917, the WANADA dealer group started holding meetings at the Mayflower in the 1920s. And so the modern incarnation, the Washington Area New Automobile Dealers Association, returns to commemorate its first 100 years.

The elegant black tie evening will start with a reception and dinner, followed by entertainment and dancing. It promises to be memorable for all WANADA dealers and Kindred-line members, who should have already received their invitations. The entertainment will consist of popular comedian and impressionist Frank Caliendo, followed by –Satisfaction/The International Rolling Stones Show.”

Caliendo is known for his strickingly accurate impressions of famous actors, the likes of Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro; and politicians George W. Bush and Bill Clinton; and broadcasters John Madden and Charles Barkley; and talk show hosts Dr. Phil, Jay Leno and David Letterman. Caliendoês high energy act is a blend of observations, impressions, characters and anecdotes that build to a frenetic pace. He is sure to leave everyone amazed and laughing!

–Satisfaction/The International Rolling Stones Show” is the global touring tribute to the greatest rock-and-roll band of all time. This Billboard and Pollstar highly rated show is entering its 15th year in production, with more than 2,500 performances to its credit.
