My Music Store will hold their eleventh annual Guitar Toss event in the parking lot of the Golden Valley Shopping Center on Saturday, July 31, from 12:30 – 4:00 PM.
For only $1 a toss – or ‘a buck a chuck’ as it is billed – kids and adults alike can throw a guitar and attempt to land it in a dumpster. Immediate prizes are given to those who successfully land a guitar in the dumpster; additionally, every toss enters the thrower in a drawing, to be held Monday, August 2, for prizes that include musical instruments and merchandise.
My Music Store co-owner Jim Harms commented: “For the drawing, we’ve received generous prize donations from many of our vendors and previous sponsors, all of whom have been incredibly generous and helpful with this now eleven-year-old event.”
All proceeds from My Music Store’s Guitar Toss event benefit the Animal Humane Society based in Golden Valley. “Every dollar collected during the event goes directly to the Animal Humane Society,” said co-owner Linda Morris. “My Music Store and the Golden Valley Shopping Center donate all of the set-up costs, and employees donate their time.”
There will be live music throughout the day from local bands and face painting for kids. For more information contact Jim or Linda at My Music Store: 763-525-0311 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
