remember seeing this on display when I was last there. Now it's gonna be sold off. I can't believe that EPE is doing this!!

What next ?
His jumpsuits, cars, planes and jungleroom furniture ?
I could understand if they were broke and losing everything. But they're not and should NOT be auctioning anything personal from the archives in my opinion.

EPE continues to stoop to new lows. Yet some want to defend them.

It does seem odd they would auction off a piece such as this.

Why not just donate a sum of money to the charity? That bed should stay where it is.

"Cool" was referring to the bed itself. Not the auction.

I also recall seeing the Graceland display of this bed. Lisa Marie obviously doesn't feel a great attachment toward it, it’s neither Elvis’ regular bed nor her Hamburger bed but instead a bed that sat in the “wardrobe room” that’s been displayed to the fans in the past. She obviously feels it’s going towards a good cause. This is not the first artifact that EPE has let go, nor will it be the last and personally I am more saddened by the recent report of the Hillcrest home being raised.

EPE has never had scruples., we all know it !

Remember the famous sale of jumpsuits at the hotel MGM Vegas late 90s. (when supposedly, the profit from the sale would be used for housing for needy people)

For make business, they are present.

Really shame

Yes, I am tending to agree with what you said. I was aware the Hillcrest home had been sold, but now I'm totally shocked that it's going to be raised. Just what is going on here?

Maybe that bed was on "loan" to Graceland like some of the jumpsuits etc.
If the person(s) who own it wanted to sell it to EPE and in turn EPE didn't
meet their price, maybe they decided to auction it for charity.

I would mention something about DNA, but I'll pass.
