Casino Fortune Holds Paris Contest - Monday 20th of February 2006

As a tribute to Paris Hilton as an international pop culture icon, Casino Fortune is holding a Paris Hilton Look-a-Like contest. Casino Fortune President Dennis Rose explains, "Casino Fortune thinks Paris is one of the most fascinating people in the world. She is recognized world wide and everything she does is news. We love the idea of paying tribute to such an ingenious star and we are hoping Paris will become a judge. Who better to judge the #1 look-a-like than Paris herself?"

Paris Look-a-Likes will strut their stuff for the judges including special guest Vincent Pastore a.k.a. Big Pussy of HBO's The Sopranos with the hopes of winning a $5,000.00 prize, their own celebrity status and plenty of publicity.

The contest will take place in New York City on Thursday April 6th from 7pm to 10pm at the newly renovated celebrity hang out Mission. Serving as hosts will be actors, producers and now inventors Chris DePierro and Michael Perri soon to be seen on the new ABC television show "American Inventor" produced by Simon Cowell.

In addition to the Look-a-Like Contest Casino Fortune is running a contest to fly four of its top players to New York for a long weekend that includes hotel, limo service, attending the contest, tickets to Broadway and Off Broadway shows and the home field season opener for the Casino Fortune New York Empire Baseball Team where they will throw out the first ball.

To enter the contest women 18 and over may log on at CasinoFortune.com to fill out an entry form and send in a photograph.
