6th Annual Birthday Party for the King
On January 18, 2014 the WNY Elvis Appreciation Society, Inc. will hold its 6th annual Birthday Party for the King at the Lucarelli's Banquet Center in Lackawanna, New York. The proceeds from this annual event are donated to Hospice Buffalo. We are very proud to say that we have donated $23,543 to Hospice because of this event. Typically there are around 500 people in attendance. Along with a 50/50 and Chinese Auction, there is a spectacular performance by our tribute artist of choice, Terry Buchwald (TCBTribute.com
). Terry has been performing and delighting crowds for over 21 years with his tribute to Elvis. Terry performs at all of our events, which is the reason we are so successful and are able to educate the non-Elvis fan on his philanthropic good-deeds. Everyone knows the music and movies, but few are aware of the money he donated to those that were less fortunate then he was.
Over the last six years, the WNY Elvis Appreciation Society, Inc. has donated $28,513.19 in all. We have supported the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Variety Kids Telethon. On November 9, we will have our second event to benefit the Variety Kids telethon. Scheduled for April 12, 2014 is yet another fund raiser. A charity has yet to be determined.
Our mission statement is, “To keep the memory of Elvis Presley alive through the continued awareness of his music, movies, generosity and life.”
