Luna Guitars Donates Guitar to Support Ophelia Project

Tampa, FL - October 19, 2005 - Luna Guitars, a Tampa-based company that designs guitars for females of all ages, has donated one of its signature inlaid guitars to the Ophelia Project, a national non-profit organization committed to helping girls grow up in a safe and supporting culture. Ophelia also sponsors educational resources and programming nationwide and acts as an advocate for youth.

The Ophelia Project’s Tampa chapter Executive Director Norrine Russell explained that the organization plans to hold a drawing for the guitar among attendees at its first national conference to take place in Tampa this month. The winner will award the guitar to a girl or young woman who can benefit from the opportunity to achieve her goals and express herself through music.

Luna Guitars’ Executive Director and Artistic Designer Yvonne de Villiers, who presented the company’s signature Luna Moth model acoustic inlaid guitar to Dr. Russell, noted that affirming and empowering females of all ages is one of Luna Guitars’ core values. “Luna is pleased to support the wonderful work of the Ophelia Project. We salute their efforts to help girls and young women nationwide and join them in the belief that females of all ages make valuable contributions to our society. We’re delighted that our donation of a Luna guitar will help a deserving young woman develop her musical talents.”
