Thank you for your support! 2011 will be better than ever!
I am very excited that we have our own blog site and soon, our own affiliate website - guitarsnotgunsca.org - we have so much to share and so many wonderful sponsors to show off and help promote their awesome products!! I am still learning my way around how to update and use this blog, with the help of our other awesome volunteers, Randy Davis, Bruce Johnson and Kathy Stevenson, we hope to keep everyone up to date on all the awesome things we have planned for 2011!
MARCH 11, 2011 - Our latest event was a success! Guitars Not Guns volunteer instructor and member of the punk band The Blanks, Russ Wood, arranged a benefit concert with VIOLATION, THE BLANKS, THE CAPS, RATS ON WHEELS, NITE SHADES! The event was held at 924 Gilman Street = Berkeley, CA, - these awesome bands and great support helped raise over $440.00!
Pictured here is Izzy, the winner of our Guitar raffle! An awesome donated SG Epiphone, all the bands signed!
Thank you Russ Wood and all the bands! I didn't realize that this is where GREEN DAY got their start! Hey, Green Day, if you're out there, check out Guitars Not Guns - we bring music to deserving kids! Thank you!!!
