Legendary Icon, Nichelle Nichols will celebrate her 85th Birthday on Thursday, December 28, 2017. A favorite actress of fans worldwide, and a trailblazer for women to be considered for substantial positions in the aerospace industry through NASA, she also opened the doors for many women, as a whole, and especially women of color for acting roles of a significant position versus simply a housewife, maid or secretary.
Ms. Nichols, who is a frequent guest at conventions and events across the globe, travels extensively and enjoys meeting the fans. Private, intimate birthday parties are usually the norm for Nichols, who decided to include 35 lucky fans in on the festivities this year to mark the milestone birthday. VIP packages which include dinner, birthday cake, and a champagne toast, plus a Meet & Greet, autographs, and photos with the birthday girl, are available to ultimate fans. The birthday dinner party will be held at La Piazza Restaurant at The Grove in Los Angeles, announced Gilbert Bell, of GB Entertainment, Ms. Nichols’ manager.
“Nichelle Nichols has a special relationship with her fans, one of mutual admiration and respect. Many of them stop by every year to say hi when she’s in their town at an event or convention. I knew that for her 85th Birthday, we wanted to do something fun and special for Nichelle and her fans, and the idea for the VIP Fan Meet & Greet packages, which includes dinner at her birthday party, sounded like a unique way to include some lucky fans in the celebration,” said Bell.
There were fan packages to join Ms. Nichols for her birthday dinner, photo-ops, autographs, and a meet & greet. This was the perfect birthday gift for Ms. Nichols and even special treat for Star Trek fans. For more updates on Nichelle Nichols, check her out via social media on Facebook and Twitter.
