Conestoga College project management students are holding an open mic fundraiser on Thursday, April 6 from noon to 3 p.m. in The Venue.
Proceeds will go to Guitars for Kids, a non-profit organization based in Cambridge that donates free guitars to kids who are interested in music but cannot afford to buy guitars.
The organizers hope to create awareness about the charity and help them purchase some used guitars.
Students and non-students who are interested in performing or donating are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 226-978-9752. Specifically organizers are looking for singers, poetry readers and people who can act as hosts, as well as volunteers to help set up, take photos and video and perform other tasks.
Tickets to the open mic event are $5 each.
Cambridge Live Music is in charge of Guitars for Kids in Cambridge and Dan Walsh, the president, will be performing at the fundraiser. More information on the Canadian singer/songwriter can be found at www.bentbeard.com.
