We’re big fans of The Beatles here at Red Banyan Group, so we were very excited when legendary Rock figure Ringo Starr helped kick off the new Hands of Fame display at Turning Stone Resort Casino, which was announced today.
After giving a memorable performance at Turning Stone recently, Starr provided the inaugural contribution that launched the Hands of Fame exhibit, which will feature handprints from the wide range of celebrities and performers who visit the resort.
