Elvis Presley : December 17, 1963 : Elvis Presley hands out Christmas checks totaling $55,000

More than 150 people jammed into the mayor's office Dec. 17, 1963, to see Elvis Presley hands out Christmas checks totaling $55,000. The checks benefited 58 Memphis and Mid-South charities.

In appreciation, the organizations presented Elvis with a six-foot plaque.

It was warm in the room, and when Commissioner Claude Armour announced Elvis was going to pass out the checks, the singer wiped his brow and said, 'Elvis is going to pass out, period'.
