Profits from the competition goes to the preservation of The Circle G Ranch
Elvis owned the ranch from 1967 to 1972, and although it is a relatively short period of time, it was a very significant period in his life. Therefore, the profits goes to The Circle G Foundation, an organization that works to preserve Circle G Ranch. The ranch was Elvis' second home. It was here that Elvis came to relax with family and friends, a place where the public could not reach him. Lesley Pilling is the founder and director of The Circle G Foundation and was a judge at Scandinavian Elvis Championship 2012.
