$20 chance to win 15k violin/bow by modern American makers

Recommended Posts

The makers involved are awesome, and the cause is wonderful. Please share if you are able, and know of venues appropriate.

Here is your chance to win a brand new $10,000 handmade violin and a $5,000 violin bow, together with a case. Proceeds will help give aid to musicians around the country who are facing terrible financial difficulty! 

Donate or purchase tickets here: https://go.rallyup.com/musicianaid

To raise aid for musicians struggling due to pandemic-caused gig cancellations, professional violin maker Jacob Brillhart has committed to donating and raffling a violin valued at $10,000 that he will be building over live stream video (watch it on Facebook Live!). He will be working double time, from 7:00 am to 11:00 pm, in an attempt to respond to the immediacy of this disastrous situation. Respected bowmakers Eben Bodach-Turner and Evan Orman will be collaborating on a violin bow, valued at $5,000, that they will also be donating with Brillhart’s violin. 

Seven Stars Arts Center in Sharon Vermont is handling donations and raffle ticket sales. To buy tickets or donate, follow the RallyUp link included above in this message. Read more about the volunteer team behind this project at the Seven Stars Webpage: https://www.sevenstarsarts.org/musicianaid.html

Musicians who have lost the majority of their income due to the pandemic can fill out the short Google Form, link also included. We will be distributing $250 aid packages on a first come first served and vetted basis. The more money raised, the more musicians will receive aid! All proceeds will go directly to musicians with a very small percentage going to the Seven Stars Arts Center to defray processing costs.

You should see if you can record all of it and then raffle that off as well. As a second item. Just a thought

There should be a follow up with the musicians who benefit somehow! Good thought.
