This fun night of food and entertainment, the 2nd Annual Elvis Dinner & Concert, is sponsored by Camp Frances Recreational and Educational Center, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

This event is the major fund raising event of the year for Camp Frances. As a result of the funds raised last year, Camp Frances installed new windows and a new furnace, completely repainted the interior of the building and installed a new kitchen, purchased new tables and chairs, and paved part of the parking area.
Future improvements will include a complete overhaul and furnishing of the basement to complement the new Bilko door that was installed this year.
Camp Frances, on the south side of Bennett Park, has very reasonable rental rates and is a perfect place for meetings, showers, kids activities, church and organization events, family gatherings, and even camping.
Reservations for all events are made at City Hall in Charlotte. The Camp Frances Board of Directors and the City of Charlotte cooperatively work together to make Camp Frances available to the public, although the City of Charlotte provides no funding for Camp Frances.
