Handmade Music Clubhouse

Cigar Box Guitar Headquarters - CBG HQ

Bella Tucker is 9 years old and is now a quadriplegic as a result of having a near fatal infection.

Some of my Facebook friends are in the processing or organizing a fund
raising guitar raffle in cooperation with Desiree Bassett and Luna
Guitars. The Tucker's medical bills are astronomical!

I have tentatively volunteered to donate one of my guitars to the raffle and am
wondering if there are any other builders who would care to join me and
donate a guitar as well.

I don't have the specifics yet, but I will post them as soon as I know more.

In the meantime, you can read about Bella at the following site:

If you would like to donate a CBG, let me know and I can coordinate our efforts.

At the moment, the plan is to conduct the raffle at the Benefit Concert on December 4th. See this page for the details:

thro me a reminder every week or so iggy and i will try and get one done for ya...its a good cause for sure
Well, it looks like the Internet raffle portion of this endeavor may not happen. However well intentioned, it appears that this would constitute gambling and could be considered illegal. We may have to just sell raffle tickets at the concert in December. Stay tuned.
How about just posting them for sale on eBay?

We may have worked out the kinks in this project, I will post more when I know for sure.


Thanks.
Update *** There have been a few logistical complications, but the end result is that we will not be able to conduct an online raffle for the guitar/s. What is going to happen is that I am going to donate a CBG and send it to Tupelo Hall in New Hampshire. They will put it on display to promote a drawing that will take place at the concert on December 4th. If anyone has something they would consider donating, like an amp, instructional video, slide, whatever, let me know and I will forward the information along to you.
