Over the last few years, AIM has assisted with Tributes and Celebrity Roasts for John Travolta, Quentin Tarantino, Larry King, Betty White and Tom Cruise.

It was a Lady Godiva appearance at the Betty White Roast. AIM Productions secured the title sponsor for Godiva Chocolatiers. Friars President and Dean Freddie Roman opened the proceedings by introducing “our modern day Lady Godiva” and as curtains parted there sat a nearly naked woman on a white horse. Betty then came out seated on a pony escorted by two bare-chested cowboys. When she got off the horse, Betty yelled to Lady Godiva, “Get the heck out of here!” And they were off!
