Memories of Elvis Fundraiser

Saturday night, February 13th, was a rocking-good time as a crowd of over 300 went to The Falls Reception and Conference Center in Columbia for a dinner and show featuring Elvis, Buddy Holly and other entertainers. Memories of Elvis included a deluxe meal, open bar and over four hours of high-energy entertainment headlined by Steve Davis in his role as Elvis. The Mid-South Revival band served as the musical backup for Elvis and two other singers, Darrein Saffron and Thomas Hickey in his impression of Buddy Holly. All the performers were polished and highly entertaining and were warmly received by the large audience.

The Human Support Services Image Committee teamed with The Falls to plan and host the event. The date was specifically picked to be on the Valentine’s Day weekend. The Image Committee and The Falls pushed ticket sales, which exceeded predictions. All costs were covered and the event earned over $4,000 to help Human Support Services and its programs. Thanks to all of our friends and supporters that attended and thanks to the staff at The Falls. Also, a big thank you goes to Steve Davis and all the other performers who played so well.
