Birmingham got its groove on March 19 at the 2nd Annual Elvis Ball: Viva Las Vegas.
Guests arrived at Old Car Heaven for a fun-filled event benefitting Creative Montessori School, a private school in Homewood that serves children ages 18 months to sixth grade using Montessori education techniques.
Dressed in ‘70s bell bottoms and jumpsuits, guests enjoyed casino gaming, a ‘70s disco with DJ Stevo and both silent and live auctions featuring artwork from Frank Fleming.
Renowned Elvis impersonator David Lee impressed the crowd with a top-notch performance as the King.
Food and beverages were provided by local restaurants including The J. Clyde, Rojo, Urban Cookhouse, Continental Bakery, Cahaba Brewing Company, Joy Smith and more. New this year, the night also featured performances by the Birmingham Sugar Babies and Dala Tribal.
According to school officials, the event raised close to $50,000 for the school.
The evening was coordinated through the efforts of event chairs Keri Lane Hontzas, Micah Cargo and Terra Mortensen, a dedicated fundraising committee and numerous volunteers and sponsors.
