Guitars For Vets is Official Charity

Thursday, March 31, 2011
Each year we try to have a charity that we raise money for during the Legacy Days Guitar Gathering. Last year we were able to raise over $2,000 for the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital Music Therapy Fund.guitars for vets logo

I am very proud to announce that we are officially supporting Guitars for Vets as our charity for this year's Guitar Gathering.

Several months ago I was watching the NBC evening news and I saw a feature describing this organization that provides guitars and instruction to vets. They often times have a better success rate with vets suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) than medication. Watch the story I saw.

Guitars for Vets offer free guitar lessons to vets through the Veterans Administration. If the vet goes through 6 lessons, they try to provide them with their own guitar.  We have officially partnered with them and donated courses to go to each of their chapters throughout the US.



If you join us for this year's Guitar Gathering, you can help us in this great cause to help vets recover as well as learn guitar! Early-bird registration for our Guitar Gathering ends May 21. Register Now.
