Friends of the Smokies license plates raise cash for park

The Friends of the Smokies, a non-profit organization that supports the work of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with money and volunteers, was able to be a lot friendlier in 2007 thanks to the residents of Tennessee and North Carolina who purchased special license tags.


According to an article in the Tennessean, sales of Friends of the Smokies tags pulled in $544,760 to go to the park, the group announced today. The piece continues with “The license plate, which first came out in 1997, has raised more than $4.9 million for the park.”
