MONTGOMERY, AL -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 -- Spring is arriving, and with it, a spectacular season of events is headed to the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center. March kicks off a season of big stars, who are bringing everything from folk rock to stand-up comedy to this Montgomery, Alabama hotel.

On March 15th, two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning will host a benefit for the Cancer Wellness Foundation of Central Alabama. An Evening with Eli Manning kicks off with a VIP reception at 6pm, followed by dinner and a "conversation" with the man himself. A live auction will also take place. Tickets start at just $100; VIP tickets ($400) include a meet-and-greet with Manning. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www.cancerwellnessfoundation.org/.

Duck-hunters and reality TV show-lovers will cross paths on March 23rd, when the A&E Network's Duck Dynasty family brings their story to this hotel near Maxwell Air Force Base. The night kicks off with a performance from the Goat Hill String Band, followed by an intimate conversation with Si and Willie Robertson. Tickets start at just $50, but for die-hard Duck Dynasty fans, dinner ($500) or a photo opportunity ($200) with the Duck Commanders is also available. The event benefits Faulkner University, and tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster.

This Montgomery hotel's performing arts center can seat up to 1,800 guests, and it will likely be packed on May 24th when Crosby, Stills and Nash bring their famous folk rock sound to the stage. The trio got their start at the legendary Woodstock festival more than four decades ago, and today is among other great artists in the Rock and Roll and Songwriters halls of fame.

In June, two totally different experiences head to this Alabama State University hotel. On the 8th, Grammy-nominated stand-up comic Ron White takes the stage. A 200 Proof VIP experience gives guests extras including a seat in the first five rows, a photo with White, a signed VIP access pass and a meet-and-greet opportunity. Closing out the season of stars is psychic John Edward, who helps people communicate with the deceased and plan for the future. If one were going to make a prediction, the event is not-to-be-missed.
