Rock The Classroom adds items from Daisy Rock's Recent Museum Induction to their On-Line Auction
Daisy Rock is pleased to announce that Rock The Classroom has added several new items, signed by the legendary Wanda Jackson, to their "Point and Click Ball" on-line auction.
New items include a Pixie Purple Daisy Rock Acoustic/Electric Guitar, Wanda Jackson\'s latest CD I Remember Elvis, and two promotional pictures of Wanda. These were all signed by Wanda during Daisy Rock\'s induction into the Museum of Making Music on October 15, 2006, making them even more special to all of us here at Daisy Rock Guitars.
All funds raised from the auction will benefit the Rock The Classroom organization. Rock The Classroom is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) “literacy through music” program. Each week, Rock The Classroom’s musicians go to under-priviledged inner-city schools in LA, and use music to reinforce key literacy skills such as reading, writing, and comprehension. The kids are 5th grade students and for many of them, English is their second language and their parents haven\'t completed high-school.
The kids learn about the blues, rock, folk, hip hop and world music, and they get to play music and write songs based on the subjects they study in school. For most of them, it’s the only creative musical experience they’re likely to receive in school, and the program is the highlight of their week.
Additional auction items this year include a Jimi Hendrix lithograph, a recording studio session, autographed electric guitars by Wanda Jackson, Jet, Kenny Loggins & Jim Messina, Coldplay, Ben Harper, songbooks with Green Day, Van Halen and more from Alfred Publishing, a day with the Dodgers, a year of free movie screenings at the Warner lot, a one-on-one poker lesson with world champion Annie Duke, concert tickets, autographed CDs, t-shirts, posters, and DVDs by Talking Heads, System of a Down, AC/DC, The Who, Rage Against the Machine, Van Halen, Queensryche, and lots more.
