Monday, August 13, 2012 — The Montgomery County Humane Society will host a Halloween with Elvis show on October 29, 2011, at the James Garner Center 210 Brunette St. in Troy, N C 27371.  The show will feature Stephen Freeman with the Echoes of a Legend Band.

Stephen is 39 years old and resides in Winston Salem, NC.  He served as a police officer and private investigator for 8 years.  Stephen’s tribute to Elvis started professionally in 1998 and he has since performed in theaters all over the country.  Stephen has written, produced and starred in 2 plays about the life of Elvis Presley that ran for a total of 24 consecutive weeks.  Stephen and his Tribute to Elvis band have opened for Charlie Daniels and in 2009 Stephen won the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino.  Stephen was a finalist in the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist contest held in Memphis, TN in 2010.  In July, 2010, Stephen was announced by Elvis Presley Enterprises as the first ever winner of the Elvis Tribute Artist Fan Vote as voted on by fans from all over the world.  He is now recognized as the world’s favorite Elvis Tribute Artist. Stephen has been featured in three books about Elvis Tribute Artist.  In March of 2011 He was named Tribute Artist of the Year by the CMA’s in Charlotte, NC.

The tickets are on sale now for the show.  The ticket price is $35.00 each; this includes a meal and the show.  The meal will be catered by Talbert’s Catering from Southern Pines.  The meal will begin at 5:30, show at 7:00 pm.

Also, there will be a silent auction with all proceeds from the show and the auction to go to the Humane Society for the care and housing of the abandoned pets.  We have great animals that are in need of a forever home.  The Humane Society does not receive funding from the county or any State agency.  We, as many other organizations, are feeling the results of the slow economy.  Our funding comes from adoption fees, private donations and from Humane Society members.

There will be memory board on display that night to remember any pet that is not with us anymore.  If you would like to have your pet remembered on this board please send a picture, name and brief comments to the Humane Society along with a $5.00 fee.  Your pet’s picture will be displayed and remembered, you will get your picture back at the end of the night.

Please come and join us for a great meal and show, while helping the abandoned pets.
