Break out the rhinestones and blue suede shoes because rock legend ‘Elvis’ is coming to the Orewa Community Centre on June 26 for a concert in aid of Age Concern, a charitable organisation which serves the needs of older people.
The “Morning with Elvis” concert is the brainchild of local couple, Peter and Diane Lane who have teamed up with Age Concern to stage the two-hour concert and morning tea.
“We recently heard Elvis impersonator, Andy Stankovich, and thought he was so good that an ‘Elvis’ concert would be a great way to for local people to beat the winter blues and an opportunity for us to raise funds for a worthy cause,” explains Mrs Lane.
The Lanes recently started a Home Instead Senior Care service in the area to assist older people who prefer to stay in their own homes but need some care and support on a daily basis.
“Part of the Home Instead Senior Care company philosophy is to support local community organisations, particularly those who work with older people,” says Mrs Lane.
Tickets are $20 each and include the concert and morning tea. They are available from Peter and Diane Lane on 09 426 9911. The concert starts at 10.00 a.m.Read more about Home Instead here.
