The campaign’s three components – compassion, country and adventure – represent Presley’s history at the Circle G and the foundation’s vision to return the artist- humanitarian’s “spirit” to the ranch by rehabilitating it as a heritage tourism site and community facility. Founder-Director Lesley Pilling is confident that Slaughter’s connection with Elvis fans will reap dividends: “With the help and support of Elvis’ amazing fans from around the world, we have the chance to create something amazing.”
The Foundation couldn’t have picked a better ambassador to represent them and the humanitarian spirit of Elvis Presley than Cody Ray Slaughter. Slaughter is a multi-talented entertainer and captures the adventurous spirit of the man to whom he pays tribute.
