[UPDATED:] The 88! Auctioning A Guitar Lesson For Leukemia Fundraiser
Update: We just found out that Adam Merrin, also from the 88!, is auctioning off a piano lesson for the same charity as well. Bid on that here.
Aw, sweet. Keith Slettedahl, guitarist/vocalist for the Los Angeles-based rock group, The 88!, is auctioning off a one-hour guitar lesson. What will you learn in an hour with the guitarist/vocalist of a pop-rock band, you ask? COMPASSION!
After all, 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit Team MATT (Mother of All T-Cell Takedowns)'s efforts to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society--Orange County/Inland Empire (LLS). Team MATT is made up of family and friends walking and raising funds in memory ofMatt Cwiertny
, who lost his life to an EBV-induced NK T-Cell Lymphoma at the age of 24.
So, say you bid on this item and help with blood cancer reseach. And you win. All you hav eot do is
1. Have a residence where you can hold the lesson
2. Live within Los Angeles County/Orange County area
What's the 88! been up to lately, you ask? They just finished touring with Ray Davies of the Kinks early this year; if you missed that, here's a video clip.
