MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Folks may want to check their mail to see if they're among the international luminaries invited to the 70th birthday bash for Minnesota's Carlson Cos.

For the platinum anniversary celebration, scheduled for Feb. 28 in Las Vegas, Carlson Chairwoman and Chief Executive Marilyn Carlson Nelson has a who's who among the world's movers on her guest list, the Star Tribune in Minneapolis reported Monday. They include Queen Silvia of Sweden, author and poet Maya Angelou, Nestle Chairman Peter Braback-Letmathe, World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab, and French Minister of Finance and Economy Christine Lagarde.

And Nelson's just getting warmed up with the guest list.

Entertainment for the 5,000 invited guests includes the Peking Opera, the Boys Choir of Kenya and the Taiko Drum Ensemble from Japan -- plus Minnesota storyteller Garrison Keillor and New York songster Tony Bennett. Regis Philbin is scheduled to host the event, the newspaper reported.

The theme for the travel-hotel-restaurant-and-cruise company fete? "Imagine you could throw one party every 70 years. (This would be it.)"
