The “Give Back Bash” is an event to raise funds for athletic facilities for the new Vernonia School campus. It will be held on Saturday, August 3, 2013, and will be one of the headline events of the “57th Vernonia Friendship Jamboree and Logging Show” weekend. The “Give Back Bash” will feature two concert performances by Justin Shandor, a world renowned Elvis Tribute Artist.
Shandor was named “The Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist” by Elvis Presley Enterprises in 2010 and recently thrilled a national television audience with his performance on the David Letterman Show on February 6, 2013. Known for his remarkable physical resemblance to the King (Graceland once sent Shandor a letter asking him to stop using Elvis’s image in his promotional materials; the image was actually of Shandor!) and his amazing voice and dance moves, Shandor will perform with a full eight piece band for his shows in Vernonia.
Shandor’s shows are scheduled for 2:00 PM and 6:00 PM in the Common of the Vernonia School, 1000 Missouri Avenue. The early show will feature early Elvis music from the 50’s and 60’s; the evening performance showcases Elvis’s music from the 70’s. Doors open one hour before show time.
The “Give Back Bash” is being organized by the Vernonia High School Alumni of 1973. Following the evening performance by Shandor, the Class of ‘73 invites all VHS alumni to an all-class reunion in the Commons. Tours of the new school building will be available. There will also be raffles and a 50/50 drawing at the concerts. Donated items so far include 4 handmade quilts, a Beach House Rental, Gift Cards, a Golf Package, handmade art and jewelry and more!
Preshow tickets, starting at $15, are recommended and available on line at www.BrownPaperTickets.com/event/294028 or by calling 800-838-3006. Tickets will also be available at the door, cash is encouraged.
