December 17 - Graceland Auction 2019

On January 8, 2019 there will be another Graceland Auction. The items included in this auction - mainly from third party collectors - at Graceland have been authenticated by Graceland Authenticated, LLC. 

Categories concert memorabilia, movie memorabilia, E.P.E. Merchandise, Colonel Parker memorabilia, pistols and rifles, autographs, jewelry, posters, instruments, clothing, documents-ephemera, furniture and decorative objects, awards, photos, records, military memorabilia and charity auction experiences. 

For the first time, a portion of the auction will benefit the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation organization. EPCF was formed by Graceland/Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. in 1984 to continue Elvis’ own tradition of generosity and community service, and to honor his memory. All of the EPCF’s funds are used for charitable donations — nothing is deducted for staffing or other operating costs. 

The foundation has assisted numerous charities over the years and has a longstanding relationship with the College of Communications and Fine Arts at the University of Memphis where the Elvis Presley Endowed Scholarship Fund was created. 

Also, dear to Elvis’ heart, the foundation has supported outstanding Memphis-based charitable organizations, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the National Civil Rights Museum. The foundation receives a portion of its overall income from Graceland/Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. A meaningful amount of the EPCF’s funding also comes from donations made by Elvis fan clubs and individual Elvis fans and admirers from around the world.
