Help Support the Mid-South Food Bank During the 2012 Graceland Lighting Ceremony

November 13, 2012

Elvis fans can help support local families during this year's annual lighting ceremony on Friday, November 16, at 6:00 p.m. We will be collecting canned good donations for the Mid-South Food Bank.

Bins will be set up around the Graceland property for guests to drop off donations. Items accepted include canned goods and peanut butter. The Mid-South Food Bank is dedicated to fighting hunger through the efficient collection and distribution of wholesome food.

American Idol finalist Skylar Laine will "flip the switch" and officially light the Graceland property. In addition to kicking off the holiday festivities, Skylar will perform a few songs, including some holiday favorites. Santa, decked out like the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, will also be available for pictures with the kids following the lighting ceremony. The free lighting event is open to the public.
