Signed Electric Guitar Auction benefitting Sitka Fine Arts Camp



We have some exciting news out of Sitka! We are pleased to announce the first-ever SFAC Rocker’s Dream auction. Starting June 25, 2013 at 10:00am ADT, we will be auctioning off a Greg Bennett Torino model electric guitar, thanks to the generosity of “The Horn Doctor” in Anchorage. If that weren’t exciting enough, two of our star-studded faculty members, Hank Moore and Austin Willacy, will sign and play the guitar. Bidding will end at 9:00pm ADT on Friday, June 28. We will announce the winner at the Rock Band Concert. If the winner is scheduled to perform at the Rock Band Concert, they will even have the opportunity to play the guitar for his/her set on stage in Allen Hall. The site for this auction can be found here:
