Elvis impersonators raise money for Alzheimer’s Society
9:47am Wednesday 13th March 2013 in Fundraising fun
SHOPPERS at a York department store were left all shook up when two Elvis impersonators lined up to serenade them during a charity fundraising event.
“Yorkshire Elvis” Eddie Vee, from York, was joined by Dean Holland – who was voted the best Elvis Presley soundalike of 2012 – at the Debenhams store in Davygate to help raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
The event was organised by the store’s staff, following a similar performance last year.
Members of the society set up a stall and shoppers who bought special tickets for the night obtained discounts and goodie bags.
About £500 was raised on the night, with more money still coming in.
The twin Elvises succeeded in getting through about 30 songs by The King during the evening.
