The event took place at a local legion, hence the "Lest We Forget" sign in the background - you thought it was about Elvis didn't you!! Who could ever forget Elvis?!?
The Elvis impersonator was a lovely fellow coming into the audience and onto the dance floor to interact with guests.
|Look deeply into my eyes....SWOON!|
Some of the band - there was also a keyboardist and drummer, altogether an excellent group of musicians.
For his final set he returned as "VEGAS ELVIS" to the appreciation of the audience. I'd say he was in a bit better shape than the original Elvis...thankfully :)
I have to say that "Elvis" did a great job at reading the audience and playing songs that got folks up and dancing. The evening also included a silent auction and 50/50 draw. I can't wait to hear how much cash was raised! This was the first ever "big gala event" for the Centre so I really hope it was successful.
In other news...KAZI GOT A NEW FULL-TIME JOB!!! And I have to hand it to her - she did this all on her own. A week and a half ago there was a London Music Awards night held where she works as a bartender. She got to talking (NETWORKING) to a woman who was in the process of looking for someone to be THE FACE OF A NEW MICRO-BREWERY called TOBOGGAN in a building which will also house a restaurant and bar serving the new local craft beers. Kazi said she'd be interested and met the owners a few days later. She found out today she GOT THE JOB!!
I've included an article from the London Free Press about the new business. SO EXCITING!!
I'm so PROUD!!
