If you live in Cleveland you may have noticed one of the over 40 10 foot tall Fender Guitars throughout the city. Well this past weekend those Guitars were auctioned off at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and Museum benefiting both the Rock Hall educational programs and United Way of Greater Cleveland. Over $2 million dollars have been raised in the past, and by the looks of it, even more was raised this year. We spoke with a few of the artists, like first time Guitar artist Jacqueline DelBrocco and Nick DiGiorgio.
Here is the link to Nick DiGiorgio’s YouTube video of the making of his Guitar Time To Rock! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJkYksHUqCU&feature=youtube_gdata_player
There were so many cool designs like Sesame Street by Gil Reis and Healthy Appeal by Michael Johnson. Healthy Appeal was sponsored by Medical Mutual and has been showcased there over these past few months.
Over all it was another successful Guitar Mania Gala for United Way of Cleveland and the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
