DEMA Show’s Awards Party Hosted at Hard Rock Hotel’s The Joint

This year’s DEMA’s Awards Party is going to rock Las Vegas as they honor Reaching Out Award recipients Dan Orr and Dick Rutkowski. A networking cocktail hour followed by an array of food and desserts, an awards ceremony and a Las Vegas-style show performed by “The Bluzmen,” a Blues Brothers tribute band are all planned for the evening.

First awarded in 1989, the Reaching Out Award honors diving community leaders whose significant contributions to the sport have elevated the industry for all. This year’s recipients, Richard Rutkowski and Dan Orr, join a list of distinguished past Honorees, including Jacques Cousteau, Dr. Drew Richardson, Fraser Bathgate and Neal Watson.

“The DEMA Awards Party is our opportunity, as an industry, to celebrate these great individuals,” said Colleen Vasquez, DEMA Associate Director and Awards Party Coordinator.

The even will be held at The Join at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on November 16, from 6:30pm to midnight. Individual tickets are available online for $69 until October 19th, and $89 thereafter.
