Help us raise $300,000 to transform the future for 500 additional students in Miami-Dade County's most challenged communities!
An epic celebration of mentorship through the arts. Join Guitars Over Guns for our 6th Annual Choose Your Sound Benefit Concert!
Guests will enjoy incredible performances from Guitars Over Guns mentors, alumni and special guests, not to mention a delicious selection of fully catered eats and beverages and an unbelievable silent auction featuring 5-star trips, experiences, fine art and so much more.
This year marks our 6th Annual Choose Your Sound Benefit Concert as we celebrate 11 years of making music and changing lives. Cuts in funding for the arts and after-school programs mean our students have fewer opportunities than ever, and as the news reports of youth violence continue to pour in, we are reminded all too often that this type of work has never been more important.
Thanks to 300+ annual attendees – donors, community members, musicians, Guitars Over Guns team members and stakeholders – we have successfully met and exceeded fundraising goals year after year. This year's goal? $300,000 – enough to expand and strengthen our mentorship programs throughout the communities we serve.
Our alumni are walking, singing, guitar-playing proof of the success of our programs, and of the need to build even more opportunities for our community's most vulnerable youth. This year, catch them live on stage as featured performers, or catch them for conversation and stories as they serve as hosts and volunteers throughout the night – bringing together our supporters, friends and fans for a party of epic proportions, along with the very youth whose boundless potential lies at the core of our mission.
Ready to rock? Become a Choose Your Sound sponsor, and be part of a movement that empowers deserving youth in our community to create, succeed and thrive!
