The club hand-builds two guitars to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network
DALLAS, TX – May 4, 2015 – (GuitarPR) – Guys Building Guitars Club, announces today that it’s 2015 charity guitars will be auctioned off on June 20th through Heritage Auctions to benefit Children’s Medical Center Dallas. Both guitars were 100% handmade by club members.
The two guitars built by the GBGC will be auctioned off through the Heritage Auctions in Dallas. They have graciously donated their fees. Both Guitars will be auctioned off as a set on June 20th, 2015 through the Heritage Auction Musical Instruments Signature Auction in Dallas Texas. The guitars will be auctioned as a pair and all of the proceeds will be given directly to Children’s Medical Center Dallas, the local CMN Hospital.
“My daughter’s life was saved by the efforts of a CMN Hospital, that’s why I wanted to give back by building these tribute guitars to honor their great work,” says Chris Hoffheins, a GBGC Member. Hoffheins was inspired by his daughter, Emily, to build a guitar that would benefit a children’s hospital. Emily, who was born three months premature and was only 2 lbs. 2 oz., spent the first three months of her life in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Children’s Medical Center. She was born on June 14, 2009 and was in the hospital until August. Today, she is a happy and healthy Kindergartner.
