Patriots team with Maine Mall to promote license plates this Saturday
The Rescue on the Runway event will feature over 70 adoptable dogs, cats and rabbits in an educational event focusing on the importance of proper care and the adoption process of these animals. The event will take place near Sports Authority and will be emceed by Blake and Eva of Coast 93.1 FM.
Patriots fans can place a preorder for a plate at the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation table and all individuals who place a preorder will receive a Nate Solder autographed photo. Patriots Cheerleaders will also be in attendance from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. to meet and greet with Patriots fans and animal lovers.
“My family and the Patriots organization know that Maine is home to some of the best Patriots fans in the world,” said New England Patriots Charitable Foundation President Joshua Kraft. “We hope to close the gap on the 2,000 preorders we need to bring this license plate program, which benefits Maine nonprofits, to the great state of Maine.”
Maine Patriots license plates cost $35 in addition to the regular registration fees, with $25 going to the state for start-up costs of producing the plate, and $10 going to the Patriots Charitable Foundation, earmarked for Maine nonprofits. The Maine license plate program marks the third Patriots license plate offered in New England, with existing programs in the states of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
Once the plate is in production, each of the 2,000 pre-sale registrants will receive a Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) voucher, which they can take to their municipal office or BMV branch to redeem for their plate. Vehicles must be under 10,000 pounds to be eligible.
