Western New York Elvis Appreciation Society’s Donation of $3000 Brings Four-Year Total to $10,000+

It’s only appropriate that, during our Summer of Love, the SPCA Serving Erie County has a big, ol’ hunk of burning love for the WNY Elvis Appreciation Society [WNYEAS]!

In April, the WNYEAS held a fundraiser featuring Buffalo Music Hall of Fame member Terry Buchwald to benefit our hound dogs and other animals! Last night, WNYEAS President Kevin Kedzierski, Secretary/Treasurer Sylvia Walworth, and other members of the group were taking care of business, presenting a check for more than $3000 to the SPCA Serving Erie County’s Gina Lattuca!

Sylvia says, “Many people don’t realize that Elvis Presley gave so much of his money away. Donations, taking care of others…this was very important to Elvis. Part of the reason our group is in existence is to honor that caring quality, which was a big part of who this remarkable man was.”

To date, the WNYEAS has donated more than $10,000 to the SPCA Serving Erie County, and we couldn’t be more shook up!

Thank you, WNYEAS! Thank you very much!

-Gina Lattuca, SPCA Chief Communications Officer
