‘Homegrown Elvis’ raising money for Red Nose Day

Anderson County’s very own “Homegrown Elvis,” a.k.a. County Commissioner Shain Vowell, will be in full Elvis mode Friday afternoon in Clinton as he raises money to combat childhood poverty heere and abroad.

Elvis will be at the Walgreen’s Pharmacy at 245 South Main Street in Clinton Friday May 18th from 3 to 4 pm. If you make a donation to the Red Nose Day Fund, you can have your picture made with the King and receive a 4-by-6 print of said photo.

Red Nose Day is run by Comic Relief Inc., a U.S. 501(c)(3) public charity.
According to the organization’s website, Red Nose Day is “on a mission to end child poverty – one Nose at a time. Money raised supports programs that ensure children in need are safe, healthy and educated.”
Half of Red Nose Day’s grant money is spent in the United States, while the other half is spent in some of the poorest communities in Latin America, Africa and Asia.
Beneficiaries of Red Nose Day grants include charity organizations such as Boys & Girls Clubs of America; charity:water; Children’s Health Fund; Feeding America; Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; UnidosUS; Save the Children; and the Global Fund.
