Second time I seen that it has said that. First time was in the intro to EOT in the movie theatre. According to this link, EPE was formed in 1981....

I wonder if the jewelry line will go as well as the linen did? What next? She flits from one thing to another as always.

In a way, they're right. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elvis_Presley_Enterprises EPE was originally set up in 1954 by Elvis Presley's then manager, Bob Neal, to exploit what he hoped would be profitable merchandise opportunities.[2] After Elvis signed with Colonel Tom Parker in 1955, EPE became a part of Parker's operations and ceased to officially exist. >

http://www.elvis.com/about-epe/default.aspx
Upon Lisa Presley's twenty-fifth birthday in 1993, the trust automatically dissolved and Lisa chose to form a new trust, The Elvis Presley Trust, to continue the successful management of the estate, with Priscilla Presley and the National Bank of Commerce continuing to serve as co-trustees.



Lisa Marie Presley became more closely involved with the management team of The Elvis Presley Trust and its business entity, Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc.(EPE), of which she was owner and Chairman of the Board until February 2005 when she sold a major interest in the company.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elvis_Presley_Enterprises

Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. (EPE) is a corporate entity created by "The Elvis Presley Trust" to conduct business and manage its assets, including Graceland.
According to Sean O'Neal, "Elvis is a cultural icon today, but he didn't become that way simply because of his talent and good looks. There was money to be made ... so a company was founded to create this icon, and it has controlled his image ... " The author describes EPE as a "well-run marketing machine" that runs on tight regulation of Elvis's images and lawsuits, when necessary. >

Later, EPE was wholly owned by the "Elvis Presley Trust" and Elvis' daughter, Lisa Marie Presley until February 2005, when Robert F.X. Sillerman and his new media and entertainment company "CKX, Inc." acquired an 85% interest in Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc., including its physical and intellectual properties.

:D :D

I agree...I still think she always uses the name "Presley" and I think it's hard to remember her for her roles or her business........

Priscilla isn't saying she founded EPE it's the person who wrote the article.

You know what would be nice for her to do in the "Presley" name? Perhaps she could establish a record label in Elvis' name that will deal with singers and songwriters that have actual talent. You know create something positive and beneficial?

This lady made the claim, so I imagine you can e-mail her at the Tampa Tribune to complain.
But even though Priscilla did not single handly start EPE she was in the group of 3 who did-and it was a success.

No matter what ; I think Elvis would have been pleased with all the ones running EPE through the years have put his name to. Reminds me of some things he himself did.There was more to Elvis than the music. :D

The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation* (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. The EPCF is overseen by Lisa Marie Presley, chairperson, and the management team of Graceland/Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc. The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation is a separate, purely philanthropic 501(c)3 charitable organization. Lisa and the staff operate the foundation in addition to their regular responsibilities and the company underwrites all the EPCF’s administrative expenses. Therefore, all the EPCF's funds are used for charitable donations, with nothing deducted for staffing or any other costs of operating the foundation.

Presley Place provides homeless families a up to one year of rent-free housing, child day care, career and financial counseling, family management guidance and other tools to help them break the cycle of poverty and regain self-esteem and independence. Also funded by the EPCF is the Elvis Presley Music Room, where the youngsters of Presley Place and other Estival properties may enjoy access to musical instruments and instruction and participate in special related programs. Presley Place opened to its first residents in July 2001.

The EPCF created the Elvis Presley Endowed Scholarship Fund at the College of Communication & Fine Arts at the University of Memphis to assist students majoring in areas that relate to Elvis' own career: music, film, television, theater, etc. The EPCF also has a long-standing relationship with one of Elvis' favorite charities, Goodwill Homes, a Memphis facility that provides counseling and services for abused children and their families. The EPCF has also quietly assisted numerous other charities through the years, especially focusing on arts, education and children's programs

*The Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation was first known as the Elvis Presley Memorial Foundation. In 1999 its name was changed to clarify its identity and purpose.

Now that's the way to run a charity - (the way Elvis would have done it himself, I would imagine!)

Hi, Teddy, good to see you back! Hows the cub?
