Elvis Rocks Ogden 2018

A benefit for the Egyptian Theatre Foundation

The Egyptian Theatre Foundation is proud to present the 3rd Annual Elvis Rocks Ogden fundraiser at the historic Peery’s Egyptian Theater. The family friendly, one night only event to be held September 22, 2018 will appeal to every level of Elvis fan. The evening will include a double feature screening of the films Viva Las Vegas and Blue Hawaii, costume & talent contest, memorabilia and more.

“Elvis Rocks Ogden is back for a third year and will be bigger than ever!” says Danielle Bendinelli, Vice President of the Egyptian Theater Foundation. “The following we are starting to build with this event has been great. It allows us to engage with new audiences and gives the public an opportunity to fall in love all over again with the “King of Rock and Roll” while taking in the unique atmosphere of such an amazing venue.”

The Egyptian Theater Foundation board focuses on fundraising initiatives for special theater-related projects, including maintenance and preservation of the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ. Campaigning in 2018 to replace the exterior marque, the ETF is looking to attract increased community participation and donations by inviting audiences to come and create their own special memories of Peery’s Egyptian Theater.

“The event will once again feature beautifully designed suits from B & K Enterprises Costume Co.” says Ryan McDonald, Event Committee Chair. “Internationally acclaimed, B & K is known for their recreations of jumpsuits worn by Elvis and this is a unique opportunity to see them up close and in person. The costumes will also be available for purchase for those die hard Elvis fans.”
