Ukulele for a Good Cause – Luthiers for a Cause
Post Update November 3rd, 2017: Please stay tuned! This ukulele, along the the five other luthier-crafted ukes will be revealed to the public Nov 17th-19th in Waikiki at the Hawaii Ukulele Festival. The ukes will then be sold via auction through Hawaii Music Supply. We’ll be posting updates on our blog and via Facebook as soon as more news breaks.
The more we learn about The Ukulele Kids Club the more excited we get about this project! Luthiers for a Cause merges the creative talents and the generous spirit of luthiers, a few hard-working organizers and a group of amazing sponsors and contributors. So many children are benefitting from the healing power of music because of TheUKC whose mission is … “To harness the healing power of music by promoting and supporting music therapy programs for hospitalized children, by giving away ukuleles to children in need through music therapy programs and sending the children home with the gift of music for life, and by advocating for the benefits of music therapy.”
The six luthiers are: Steve Grimes, Beau Hannam, Jay W Lichty, Jake Maclay, John Kevin Kinnard Ukes and Joji Yoshida.
Organizers: Eddie Monnier, Ka Uchiyama, Corrie Woods
Stay tuned for images of the completed ukulele!
