On Saturday, August 23rd, 2014 from 7pm to 11pm, Guitars Over Guns will host a benefit concert to help support our mission of providing Miami’s underprivileged students a powerful alternative to the gang recruitment, drugs, and violence faced by at-risk youth.
Roxanna Vargas of NBC 6 South Florida will host the music filled event. Jencarlos Canela will make a special appearance along with some of Miami’s most coveted bands, Suénalo, and The Spam Allstars, and students of the Guitars Over Guns program.
Guitars Over Guns will also host a silent auction of unique gift packages and donated items from partners. The auction will include a fine art exhibition featuring Internationally renowned artist, LEBO Alex Mijares, Krave, Bhakti Baxter and Eva Ruiz. LEBO will also be auctioning off a painting he creates specially for the event.
All proceeds will benefit Guitars Over Guns Organization and provide structured after- school programs designed to reduce drop-out rates and empower at-risk youth through mentoring, instrument training, music instruction, and performance opportunities.
