GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Former gambling industry advocate Frank Fahrenkopf, Caesars Entertainment CEO and President Gary Loveman and Las Vegas Strip headliner Celine Dion have been named among this year’s inductees to the American Gaming Association Gaming Hall of Fame.

French chef Guy Savoy will also be enshrined during the association’s 25th induction ceremony Nov. 14 at PURE Nightclub at Caesars Palace.

Fahrenkopf retired this year as president of the American Gaming Association since it was founded in 1995.

Loveman is a former Harvard University professor who joined Caesars’ predecessor Harrah’s Entertainment Inc. in 1998.

Dion is a Canadian singer whose Las Vegas residency began in March 2003 at the custom-designed Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

Savoy draws consistent critical acclaim at his self-named restaurants in Paris and at Caesars Palace.
