One Harlem Relay for Life team enlisted a celebrity sponsor to help raise money for the American Cancer Society.
The Petal Pushers, sponsored by Holley's Flowers, managed to hire Elvis for a one-night only concert from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday, April 12, at Harlem High School.
Okay, so he's not the real Elvis. But he does a great impersonation, said team member Cheryl Lowe.
"From a distance he kind of favors, but he sounds a lot like Elvis," she said. "Some of the songs, if you close your eyes, you would think you were at an Elvis concert. He has come closer to anyone I have heard so far."
The impersonator, Damon Hendrix of Atlanta, regularly competes in Elvis impersonation contests. He will perform the first hour of the show as young Elvis.
impersonator Damon Hendrix will perform a concert from 7 to 9 p.m. Saturday at Harlem High School to benefit the American Cancer Society.
"He will do the last hour as the older Elvis complete with costume changes and all that," Lowe said. "He is very good. He has got a lot of the moves. He loves to dance and do a lot of that."
Refreshments will be served.
Tickets cost $7 in advance and $10 at the door. Tickets can be obtained from Holley's Flowers at 450 West Milledgeville Road, Harlem, or by calling Leona Holley or Cheryl Lowe at (706) 556-6979.
