This was last year, but I found it nice: Watch what happens when 80 kids are given guitars at The Guitar Store! "Jared Dines is an absolute hero! Sunday the 15th of December he gave away 80 $750 shopping sprees to the kids at the store. We arranged some special deals from Yamaha, Jackson, PRS, Gretsch and Orange to help make the money go even farther and paid the 10.1 ptc local sales tax. Kids got to come in to the shop in groups of 20 and pick out whatever they wanted. A very nice guitar or bass. Maybe an amp, pedals, all the accessories they desired. Whatever. It was the most enjoyable day I could have imagined." The Guitar Store was a nice one, but in Northern Seattle, so I rarely went. Due to circumstances, they had to close up shop and move (even further Northwest), but still are in business.
