An epic evening of music and fun in the name of our community’s most needed youth! These young people living in Miami’s underserved communities need positive alternatives to the dangerous influences that dominate their environments. Cuts in funding for the arts and after school programs mean our students have less opportunities than ever, and as the news reports of youth violence continue to pour in, we are reminded all too often that our work has never been so important.
The evening, hosted by Kimmy B of HITS 97.3 FM, will delight guests with a musical tribute to Motown. Guests will enjoy delicious food from SuViche and Novecento, along with beverages courtesy of Russian Standard Vodka, and Wynwood Brewery, while perusing an extensive silent auction.
This event celebrates the important role that Guitars Over Guns’ arts-based mentoring programs have in keeping Miami’s young people inspired, engaged, and prepared to be successful adults. Our unique style of mentorship through the arts opens the necessary doors to create the opportunity for student success —in and out of the classroom.
Our goal this year is to raise $150,000, allowing us to transform the future for 500 additional students living in Miami-Dade County’s most disadvantaged communities.
