License plate of Alice Cooper in Arizona to help Solid Rock Teen Centers

A special license plate featuring Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member and Arizona resident Alice Cooper could hit state roads later this year.

A bill passed by the Arizona Legislature and signed by Governor Doug Ducey earlier this month not only creates a new specialty plate design, but also establishes the Special Plate Fund for Music and Entertainment. youth art.

The fund is dedicated to helping Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Teen Centers, a Phoenix and Mesa-based nonprofit faith-based organization that mentors people ages 12 to 20 and helps them discover their talents at no cost.

After researching specialty plates, the nonprofit determined that having one would help gain exposure and earn extra income.

“It would be amazing if we could have a base to really expand our programs, just to reach more kids,” said Randy Spencer, who oversees community partnerships and development at the center.

The special plaque has a $32,000 implementation fee that Spencer told The Arizona Republic was already fully funded, but did not have that person’s name.

For those wishing to purchase, the plate has an initial fee of $25 with the same cost for an annual renewal. Of this amount, $17 will be donated to the centres.

The special plates don’t yet have a design, but Spencer said Cooper “is very flattered and honored that his name and his image are going to help a group of kids.”

If all goes as planned, the plate will be issued by December 31.
