Support the Troops with Elvis Tonight!

TAUNTON, Massachusetts

[Wendy Levesque] and her family and friends have organized an "Elvis Dinner Show" to be held tomorrow night at the Columbia Cultural Center in the Myles Standish Industrial Park.

"We've got about 100 people coming so far," Wendy Levesque said.

The money raised, she said, will help to purchase care packages and recreational items to send to her husband's regiment...

"It's really about what they want over there," she said. "They're asking for Dunkin Donuts coffee and sports equipment."

Levesque anticipates sending them all that they are asking for with the help of the dinner show - a basketball hoop, badminton and Frisbees.

At the dinner show, Levesque said she is also going to officially start a fundraising group, "Until They Come Home" in the hopes to raise awareness and provide support for the troops in Iraq.

The Elvis Dinner Show's doors are expected to open 7:30 p.m. and will include a dinner catered by A & D Catering at 8 p.m. The show will start at 9 p.m. and features New England's No. 1 Elvis Tribute Artist, Mike Slater.Tickets will still be available at the door: $20 per person for the dinner and show, and $10 for the show only.

Those interested in purchasing tickets can reach Wendy Levesque at (910) 554-9041.
