Pick a Guitar for a Cause

2018 marks the third year Pick A Guitar for a Cause, hosted by A Way with Words Foundation, will be held in the Jeanne D. Tyler Grand Ballroom at Stambaugh Auditorium. The event will begin at 4:30 in the evening, featuring dinner catered by Inspired Catering and a cash bar. Entertainment will be provided by Comedian Mike Armstrong, from Comedy Central, and Grammy award-winning country singer and songwriter Billy Dean. Silent auction items will include a mix of custom painted and signed guitars, in addition to a chance auction. Join the event at 7:00 for dessert and a chance to bid on auction items.

Patients and caregivers can lean on one another with thought that together “There’s Hope in what we do”
