We’ve just gotten word from our friends at LEAF – the winner of the 2013 Lichty Guitar Raffle to benefit LEAF programming is …
Many, many thanks to everyone who supported this wonderful raffle, who purchased tickets and who helped us to spread the word. This annual guitar raffle has made a meaningful difference in the lives of so many who are touched by LEAF arts and education programming.
We look forward to next year’s raffle so stay tuned.
In keeping with a great annual tradition we are excited to announce news about how you can win a guitar, a one-of-a-kind Lichty handcrafted guitar, in 2013 while supporting a wonderful cause.
North Carolina luthier Jay Lichty builds heirloom quality handmade acoustic guitars and ukuleles. Each year, as part of our Giving Back Program, we donate a guitar to be raffled by LEAF, a non-profit organization established to build community and enrich lives through the Arts – locally & globally – with festivals, events, mentoring, and educational programs. We want you to know that when you buy a raffle ticket (tickets) you’ll not only have an opportunity to win a guitar, you’ll be supporting a great cause. To date, Lichty Guitar raffles have raised over $10,000 for LEAF programming!
