As people around the world are celebrating John Lennon’s birthday today, Chicago’s Rock for Kids will honor the legend in a tangible way.
The organization will raffle off a rare John Lennon 70th Anniversary J-160E Vintage Sunburst guitar at their 25th Annual Rock and Roll Benefit Auction Nov. 9 at the Park West. The guitar is one of only 500 in the world, and is worth almost $4,000. It was donated by The Chicago Music Exchange.
The auction raises funds to provide music education for underserved students in Chicago Public Schools.
XRT’s very own Lin Brehmer and Marty Lennartz will be the auction MC’s.
