Trick or Treat Welcome Reception
Silent Auction
Live Auction Artist Meet and Greet


It's Halloween! And the dress code is: come in costume. No, really, come in costume, even if you don't ordinarily "do" costume. Come dressed in your favorite Barbie® doll ensemble, your "old-stand-by" Halloween costume, or even as a Country Music star. Everyone's excuse is always "I don't want to be the only person in a costume” but if we all come in costume, no one will stand out! So dress up and prepare for a treat (and maybe a trick or two!).

There will be plenty of treats in our fabulous Silent Auction entries. The proceeds from our Silent Auction will benefit Special Olympics Tennessee. You can also drool over the eye candy as you get your first look at the Live Auction OOAK dolls and meet these talented artists.

This is an open event not hosted by Table Hosts. Light hors d'oeuvres will be served.

My Funny Valentine Luncheon
Mattel Event

Wear something red - a shirt, sweater, dress, skirt, slacks, sneakers, shoes, or jewelry. Red-rimmed eyes from staying up all night talking "Barbie® doll” doesn't count! Be generous with your wishes at this Valentine’s event; don't just focus on one person. Be creative and show your inner Cupid, after all, Valentine's Day only comes once a year (except in 2014, when we get to celebrate twice!).

With Mattel as “Head Cupid”, you will fall in love with the Barbie® doll all over again.

This is a Table-Hosted meal event.

Jingle Bells Dinner
Live Auction

Spending holiday time with your Barbie® doll friends, what could be more fun! This would be a great event at which to give your table gifts if you plan to do so. And this is a great opportunity to wear one of those never-used holiday-themed sweaters you keep receiving. Well, now you can use that sweater hidden in the bottom drawer. This event will celebrate that often received gift with an Ugly Sweater contest! More details are on page 9. One lucky person that is brave enough to wear his or her sweater to this event may just go home with a special gift .

Carol Spencer will present this year’s coveted Barbie® Best Friend Award.

The Live Auction will feature painstaking and beautifully detailed creations from some of your favorite one of a kind doll artists. The proceeds from this year’s auction will benefit the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.

This is a Table Hosted meal event.

New Year's Eve in Nashville
Awards and Doll Presentation

It's New Year's Eve, the most glamorous and festive night of the year. We ask that you dress for the occasion so be sure to pile on the bling until you sparkle!

At this event we will be honoring our competition winners with the popular People’s and Judges’ Choice awards.

Last, but certainly not least, we will unveil the highly anticipated convention doll.

In the original Scot’s language, the definition of Auld Lang Syne is Old Good Times. For our event we will celebrate New Lang Syne, or New Good Times, until we meet again in 2015.

This is a Table-Hosted meal event.
