Guitars For Vets is a federally registered 501(c)(3) organization, which originated in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2007. Guitars For Vets enhances the lives of ailing and injured military veterans by providing them with guitars and music instruction. Volunteer instructors provide the lessons, and donations of used guitars and supplies are solicited. Fund-raising events are held to benefit the national Guitars For Vets organization, which provides the guitars and other accessories to the local chapters. There are currently about 30 chapters throughout the United States.
The Cleveland chapter of Guitars For Vets operates at the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Facility, Wade Park Campus. Since November of 2011, we have provided 23 new guitars to Veterans.
The Cleveland chapter is planning a fund-raising event on Sunday, May 26, 2013 (Memorial Day Weekend) at Stamper's Bar, 21750 Lorain Road, Fairview Park, Ohio 44126 from 6:00pm to 11:00pm. It will feature the musical talents of Monica Robins and the Ninja Cowboys, Jeff Sherman, and the G4V Band. There will be Guitars For Vets merchandise available, and silent auctions.
