We have a winner in our guitar raffle! At the raffle drawing, held Nov. 15 at 6 PM at the FRWA office, the winning ticket belonged to Chuck Bird of Burlington, CT. Congratulations to Chuck and our sincere thanks to all who participated in the raffle! Chuck and his friend Paul Willis are active in Friends of Sessions Woods– and may actually use the guitar in a second fundraiser for their own conservation organization! Will keep you posted…
Last year we had so much fun and the response was so enthusiastic that we decided to do it again! This time, the Grand Prize guitar is a Guild D-40 Bluegrass Jubilee in Natural with Case, built in New Hartford, Connecticut by Guild Guitars (guildguitars.com). It has a list value of $3,199.99 . Notable playtors.com guitarists who played a Guild D-40 include Richie Havens (during Woodstock and beyond) and Pat Metheny.
Like last year, a very limited number of tickets have been printed so your chances are good! Tickets are $20 each and all proceeds go to support FRWA’s programs. Drawing will take place on November 15, 6pm at the Simsbury Free Library. Winner need not be present to win. Act now to get a chance to own a guitar played by the very best!
