Guitar Drive for AMTA

$5,700 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 53 people in 32 months

Join Blue Star Connection in one of our biggest projects yet!

My name is Sadie Johnson and on behalf of Blue Star Connection, we would like to introduce to you our Blue Star Super Duper Electric Guitar Drive! Blue Star Connection is a non-profit organization based out of Colorado. Since 2005, Blue Star has supplied music instruments to children with life-threatening illnesses. Additionally, we support music therapy programs in children's hospitals throughout the country.

Last November, John Catt, founder of Blue Star Connection, donated 40 electric guitars, amplifiers, straps and guitar stands to the American Music Therapy Association's (AMTA) Annual Conference in Kansas City. This year, Blue Star Connection has set our sights high to raise enough money and to collect enough instrument donations for 150 electric guitars! These guitars will be distributed at the AMTA Conference this year in Sandusky, Ohio to the Music Therapists.

Our deadline is October 19th. Please help us reach our goal of $15,000 so we are able to keep on spreading the gift of music throughout music therapy programs across the country. 

John Catt has dedicated his life to changing lives with the gift of music. He has done that. Join us in continuing his mission and meeting this challenge. No donation is too small.

Please check out website and FaceBook page with further details of the event and about our organization!

Do it for John; he deserves the support of all who attended his concerts and all of Grand County who's economy benefitted from his hard work.
