9/24/06 SOLD! WP Autographed Guitar Helps Fightfighters

Widespread Panic's signed Fender guitar was sold on 9/24. It went from a minuscule $83.00 opening bid on September 5th to a whopping $1,100.00 at the final moments of The Firefighters Fund Auction.

The nonprofit organization received guitars from the stars and auctioned them off in an all month, on-line auction. The proceeds are going to The Firefighters Fund in order to support 12 local volunteer fire departments in the Hayman Fire burn area and the Ambulance District of Colorado.

The Fender was signed by John Bell, Dave Schools, Todd Nance, Jojo Hermann, Sunny Ortiz and George McConnell in July 2006 and donated to the Fund.

The highest bid of all the 'Stars Guitars' was $2,603.00 and went to a priceless OLP MMI-TGD Trans Gold Guitar signed by Eddie Van Halen on 8/1/04 at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.
