Elvis Presley’s home of Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee is being lit up in pink each night for the next week. The reason being to help raise Brest Cancer Awareness. The King’s mansion made the announcement earlier this week with a picture of the front of the house in pink.
Graceland’s statement read: “The historic Elvis Presley’s Graceland will light up pink each night starting October 1 through October 11 to remind everyone about the benefits of early detection in the battle against breast cancer.
“To help raise awareness, Graceland joins countless of other famous landmarks, buildings and monuments all around the world that are displaying pink as a symbol of hope and empowerment.”

This isn’t the first time the Memphis mansion has been lit up in different colours this year.
