Limited edition Elvis Presley t-shirt // (c) 2011 Pacific Historic Parks
In conjunction with Elvis Presley Enterprises, Pacific Historic Parks (formerly known as the Arizona Memorial Museum Association) is now offering a limited-edition Elvis Presley T-shirt to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Presley’s historic benefit concert at the Pearl Harbor Navy Yard Bloch Arena in Hawaii.
Held on March 25, 1961, the concert raised funds to help build the USS Arizona Memorial. The exclusive Elvis T-shirt is only available through Dec. 31, 2011.
Designed and produced in Hawaii, the shirt features an image of the original concert billboard with Presley in his trademark gold lame suit and includes a hangtag replica of the concert ticket.
T-shirts are $24.95 and available only at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center bookstore or via their online bookstore. Proceeds from the commemorative shirt support the educational programs at the USS Arizona Memorial and the new Pearl Harbor Visitor Center.
“Elvis Presley gave of his time and fame to ensure the memories of those who sacrificed on Dec. 7, 1941, and the lessons learned from the attack on Pearl Harbor are never forgotten,” said Tom Shaw, president of Pacific Historic Parks. “Pacific Historic Parks shares that commitment and together with Elvis Presley Enterprises, we hope our commemorative endeavor helps Elvis Presley’s legacy of giving continue on.”
To support the efforts of Pacific Historic Parks and to commemorate the anniversary, Elvis Presley Enterprises is posting photos and video of the historic concert.
