Score a New Jersey Devils’ License Plate
Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission will unveil the NJ Devils’ license plate at the Devils vs. Sabres game
(NEWARK)- Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno and New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) Chief Administrator Raymond P. Martinez will join young players from the New Jersey Youth Hockey league later today to reveal the New Jersey Devils’ license plate.
Devils’ Chairman and Managing Partner Jeff Vanderbeek and Vice Chairman Michael Gilfillan will also participate in the ceremonial puck drop before tonight’s 7:00 p.m. start of the Devils v. Sabres game at the Prudential Center.
The plates, which will be unveiled in public for the first time, will be available for motorists to purchase on the MVC’s Web site, www.njmvc.gov/sports. Fans at the game will be able to get an even closer look at the plate when it is displayed on the jumbotron and at an MVC table that will be located on the concourse. Sports enthusiasts will have the opportunity to pick up applications to order the special Devils’ plate at the MVC table.
“I am pleased that I will be joining the Motor Vehicle Commission and the New Jersey Devils to unveil the newest addition to our State’s sports plate offerings from the MVC,” said Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno. “The new plate will allow New Jersey Devils’ fans to display their pride for our home team and support youth hockey programs in the Garden State, both things we can be proud to celebrate.”
The MVC is exclusively offering only one NHL team plate, New Jersey’s home team, the New Jersey Devils. Applications can be obtained at any of MVC’s 42 agencies or online and must be mailed-in to the MVC Special Plates Unit for processing. Plates are $60 for an initial purchase with an annual renewal fee of $60. Personalized plates are also available for purchase for an additional fee.
“The sale of sports plates is a win-win for the State as it allows fans to show their team spirit while providing another valuable source of revenue for the State and assists youth hockey programs,” added Martinez.
Revenue received by the NHL will be donated to the Devil’s Alumni Association and will be put towards NJ youth hockey programs. The Devils Alumni Association was formed for the purposes of bringing together former Devils players to develop enjoyable civic activities and charitable fund-raisers, participating in worthwhile charity/community service programs, and developing the means to help promote amateur hockey. It helps set-up ice clinics for inner-city children, scholarships for high school hockey players, fund specific youth leagues and put together charity and community appearances.
"Devils fans have been waiting a long time to show their Jersey Pride on our roads," said Devils’ Chair Vanderbeek. "This is a great way to let all motorists know about Jersey's Team while also helping a good cause.”
The MVC has also released its line of NBA-themed and NASCAR-themed license plates. The NBA plates feature the Nets, the Knicks and the 76ers. The 12-plate NASCAR series honors fans of the sport as well as 10 individual drivers, including New Jersey’s own Martin Truex, Jr. Over the next few weeks, the MVC will begin offering other sports license plates.
