It would have been nice to mention that Monterey Mattress Marquee donated the guitars that were auctioned off. Their generosity has been at the forefront of the creation of Monterey chapter of Guitars not Guns.

In 1992 My wife Louise and I became foster parents. When I found that these kids move from home to home sometimes several times before they are 18 I started looking for guitars to pass along to them . What started as a way to help foster kids has now become a national charity that provides guitars and lessons to kids and teens nation wide. All our teachers are volunteers so a big shout out to them and thanks to everyone that is supporting the Guitars not Guns Music Program.
