If the rockstar inside of you has always wanted to experience the feeling of throwing a guitar as far as you can – here's your chance to do so and benefit the animals of Animal Humane Society at the same time! My Music Store is holding its 14th annual Guitar Toss event in the parking lot of the Golden Valley Shopping Center on Saturday, July 27th, from 12:30 – 4:00 pm.
For only $1 a toss – or “a buck a chuck” – kids and adults alike can throw a guitar and attempt to land it in a dumpster. Immediate prizes are given to those who are successful and every toss enters the thrower in a drawing, to be held the following week, for even bigger prizes that include musical instruments and merchandise.
All proceeds from My Music Store’s Guitar Toss event benefit the Animal Humane Society. “Every dollar collected during the Guitar Toss 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. Employees and volunteers donate their time.”
My Music Store’s Guitar Toss is a family event. There will be live music from local bands along with face painting and a balloon-maker for kids.
