If you are a GENERAL HOSPITAL fan who would love to take a humorous and very candid peek back in time and behind-the-scenes of your favorite soap, then have we got a party for you! Kin Shriner (Scotty) is having his very own fan event this Sunday during the GH Fan Club Weekend, and with over 36 years of stories to regale the fans with, it's certain to be a highlight of the weekend.
Shriner is excited to be hosting this special event. "I haven't done a fan event in over 15 years," he reveals. "Everybody seemed to be so excited about the 50th anniversary and all of us being back on the show. As it turned out, I'm still there! So, it it seems like a good time to get together again."
As most people know, when not working in Los Angeles, Shriner calls Fort Lauderdale, FL, home and boating is a past time that has been a part of his life since childhood. "I live on the ocean about a mile from where I grew up." At his fan event, every guest in attendance will receive a necklace that has a special significance to the actor -- an anchor charm! "Anchors away!" jokes Shriner, who is usually spotted wearing a similar necklace around his neck. "So this is a nice gift for the fans."
Can't travel to Los Angeles to be a part of the event? No worries! Shriner has given Soaps In Depth ten necklaces to give away to our readers! To enter the giveaway, click here.
If you are in the Los Angeles area, there are still tickets left for Shriner's event at the GH Fan Club Weekend, being held at the Sportsman's Lodge in Studio City. The party is on Sunday, July 28, from 4 to 6 p.m. PST, and tickets are $60 and can be purchased during the GH fan club luncheon or at the door.
