We have been overwhelmed by the wonderful generosity so many of you have shown in entering our competition in support of Little Kids Rock.
The sweepstakes raised $3140 – enough to serve an additional 125 kids with free music lessons this year!
Thomas “Jay” Gleaton from Atlanta, GA was the winner of the customized Dual Terror signed by members of Primus. This former music teacher donated enough to put a new acoustic guitar into a local classroom. He is a bass player and he said that hearing Primus is what made him want to pick up an electric bass in the first place.
“Little Kids Rock is so grateful to Primus and Orange Amps for supporting our kids!” says Little Kids Rock CEO and Founder, David Wish. “With the funds raised from this sweepstakes, nearly 125 additional public schools students will have access to free musical instruments and lessons, a gift that will last a lifetime!”
Our congratulations to Jay and our sincere thanks to everybody who donated to this very special cause.
