Show You’re ‘Batty About Cincinnati’ with a Personalized Reds License Plate
CINCINNATI, Ohio – The Reds Community Fund wants to help you show your pride in the Cincinnati Reds. Share your baseball passion and knowledge of Reds history with a personalized Cincinnati Reds Ohio license plate.
According to Charley Frank, executive director of the Community Fund, the following personalized plates are still available:
The Reds specialty plates were unveiled last year and are available for a $35 fee in addition to standard registration costs. Approximately $25 of the fee benefits the Reds Community Fund and its “Reds Rookie Success League.” A portion of the proceeds also benefits the Greater Cincinnati Sports Corporation.
The Community Fund also announced that it’s launching a fundraising program aimed at area athletic organizations. Teams can qualify for a $250 incentive by registering 10 names for the Reds specialty plates. The value of the stipend will then increase by $25 for each additional plate sale. The stipends can be redeemed for equipment and uniforms at Koch Sporting Goods in Cincinnati.
Getting the word out about the program is a paramount concern for the RCF. Unless a minimum total of 1,000 plates has been ordered by May 2006, the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles can cancel the program forever.
The plates can be ordered at any deputy registrar's office, by mail, or online at www.oplates.com. Requests for special plates can be made at any deputy registrar's office online, through the mail, or by calling the Bureau of Motor Vehicles at (888) PLATES3 (1-888-752-8373). The plates can be ordered at any time, regardless of when your vehicle tags are set to expire.
