The official Elvis Presley Tennessee license plate will be unveiled Tuesday at a Graceland ceremony following a classic car rally at the Regional Medical Center at Memphis. Proceeds from the sale of the plate will benefit the Elvis Presley Memorial Trauma Center at The Med and The Med Foundation, the fundraising arm of the Shelby County owned hospital.
The plates are now being distributed to those who pre-ordered them but will soon be available throughout Tennessee at local county offices and mail order. The first license plate will be placed on the first Rolls Royce ever owned by Presley. The plate -- license number (EP)000 -- is being donated to the Graceland archives and will become a permanent part of the collection.
The Med's trauma center is this region's only Level-1 trauma center and has served a 5-state, 150-mile radius around Memphis for 25 years.
