An epic celebration of mentorship through the arts.
It’s the hottest party in Miami. Join Guitars Over Guns for our 7th Annual Choose Your Sound Benefit Concert, November 14, 2020 at the UM Watsco Center!
Guests will enjoy incredible performances from Guitars Over Guns mentors, alumni and special guests, not to mention a delicious selection of fully catered eats, an open bar, and an unbelievable silent auction featuring 5-star trips, experiences, fine art and so much more. Miami icons will emcee the event, and our alumni will share moving stories and electrifying conversation throughout the evening.
This event celebrates Guitars Over Guns’ 12 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.
Since 2008, we have served more than 4,000 youth in Miami and Chicago. Last year, we crushed our fundraising goal, raising $380,000 to transform the futures of 500 additional students living in Miami-Dade County’s most disadvantaged communities. This year, get ready to don your rockstar finest, blow our $500,000 goal out of the water, and be part of a movement that empowers deserving youth in our community to create, succeed and thrive!
