THE BIG SPLASH BASH PICKS UP MOMENTUM; THE MIAMI PROJECT TO CURE PARALYSIS TEAMS UP WITH CRYSTAL PALACE FOR WORLD'S BIGGEST BEACH PARTY

 NASSAU, Bahamas, July 15 /PRNewswire/ -- A galaxy of celebrities and VIPs will descend on Carnival's Crystal Palace resort & Casino this Labor Day Weekend, Sept. 3-6, to celebrate the opening of its newest attraction, the $1.5 million Swim Lagoon and Beach with a Big Splash Bash. Here are some of the celebrities attending: Kristian Alfonso, the beautiful actress that graced "Falcon Crest" and "Days of our Lives"; auto racing professional Michael Palumbo; Kate Linder of "The Young & The Restless"; and a special guest appearance from Tina Louise, Ginger of "Gilligan's Island."
 This week, The Miami Project To Cure Paralysis announced its participation in the Big Splash Bash. Playing a major role in helping to make the event "the world's biggest beach party" is Stand Up! -- the Young Leadership Committee of The Miami Project that comprises mainly young professionals.
 Said Marc Buoniconti, chair of Stand Up! and ambassador of The Miami Project, "We're really looking forward to the Bash. We are confident that with the enthusiastic support of our members, men and women who are young, active and committed to the vital work of The Miami Project, it will be a tremendous success."
 A portion of the proceeds stemming from the weekend celebration will go to The Miami Project, the world's largest, most comprehensive scientific center dedicated to finding more effective treatments, and ultimately, a cure for paralysis resulting from a spinal cord injury. Founded in 1985, the organization gained national attention after Marc, son of Nick Buoniconti, the former Miami Dolphin All-Pro linebacker, suffered a paralyzing football injury.
 Among the many exciting events scheduled for the weekend are Guinness World Record attempts, water ski shows, celebrity/guest beach Olympics, sand castle building, tennis and golf tournaments, a swim suit fashion show, a Bahamian banquet and even an outdoor concert! The main attraction, however, will be the newly completed beach. A tropical cove extends 250 feet into the ocean, surrounded by lush, tropical greenery that is perfect for swimming, boating, skiing, parasailing, SCUBA diving and snorkeling.
 "This fabulous weekend allows us to show the world the magnificent facilities of the Crystal Palace," said Peter Krollpfeiffer, president and general manager. "With the completion of the swim lagoon and beach, the Crystal Palace has established itself as the destination resort for active vacationers. Best yet, the event will raise thousands of dollars for a most worthy cause."
