"Holiday On Ice" Company Visiting at Elvis' Home
Memphis Press-Scimitar, Monday, March 14, 1960
Elvis Presley is playing host to the Holiday on Ice company today at his home. Buses were to leave the Hotel Claridge at 2:30, carrying the entire company to Graceland to spend the afternoon.
The singer visited the show again last night at Ellis Auditorium and spent most of the time backstage. He climbed up to the elevated bandstand where Conductor Ben Stabler let him wield his lighted baton for a moment over the 17-piece band. Later he hugged the matronly wardrobe women and told them they had all done "a great job." Elvis was kept busy signing autographs and posing for pictures for members of the company. He wore a white, open-neck shirt and dark suit.
At the performance for negroes last night, which drew a capacity house, St. Jude Hospital received a check for $500 thru the Zeta Phi Beta sorority, a negro organization.
Sarah Lewis, top student at LeMoyne College and "Holiday Princess of the Ice for 1960" accepted the check from Mrs. Maggie Jordan, sponsor of the sorority campus chapter, who turned it over to Fred Gattas, representing the hospital. Remaining performances of the ice show will be tonight and tomorrow at 8:30.
