Help us transform the future for students in Miami and Chicago's most vulnerable communities!
An epic celebration of mentorship through the arts. Join Guitars Over Guns for our 7th Annual Choose Your Sound Benefit Concert!
Guests will enjoy incredible performances from Guitars Over Guns mentors, alumni and special guests, not to mention upgraded sponsor experiences, interactive conversations, a jaw-dropping auction, and ticket options that feature exquisite meals and exciting prizes. Surprise guests 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 students and families we serve face the many challenges of a post-COVID world, we are reminded every day that this type of work has never been more important.
Thanks to 600+ 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? $500,000 – 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 on our virtual stage as featured performers, or catch them in Breakout Rooms for conversation and stories 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!
