“We are immensely grateful to Free Guitars 4 Kids for their generous donation, which will not only enrich the musical experiences of our students but also inspire and nurture their creativity. Your dedication to providing access to instruments and promoting the joy of music is truly admirable and we are proud to partner with you in our mission to empower young artists.” Roger Schmidt – Executive Director, Sitka Fine Arts Camp
This summer, FG4K and Alaska Airlines are teaming up with Gibson Gives to donate 172 guitars to kids who attend the Sitka Fine Arts Camps.
120 kids will be rocking out in the ROCK BAND camp. This camp is for 6th-12th grade. Another 52 kids from 5th grade will be taking an introductory guitar class. ALL 172 kids, upon completion of this camp, will be able to keep their guitars!!!
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with Alaska Airlines and Gibson Gives to help make 172 kids dream of owning a music instrument come true! This is the 50th Anniversary of the Sitka Fine Arts Camp and they have worked with over 1,000 kids from all over the State of Alaska throughout the years. We feel very proud to be able to support their efforts. We want to extend a big THANK YOU to Alaska Airlines and Gibson Gives for helping make this gift a reality.” – Ben Dudley – Executive Director, Free Guitars 4 Kids.
“Cultivating the love of music in a child’s heart is a priceless gift that can last a lifetime. Free Guitars 4 Kids is not just about giving an instrument, it’s about giving hope, inspiration, and an opportunity for a brighter future.” -Chris Cice, Alaska Airlines Pilot
