Tampa, FL - January 30, 2007 - On Saturday night, January 27th, a Luna Andromeda Trans Grape electric guitar was auctioned to benefit the capital campaign for The Vera Project (www.theveraproject.org). Vera is a groundbreaking, all-ages music and art facility in the heart of Washington's Seattle Center. The non-profit organization not only sponsors shows for teens, but also teaches young people the skills necessary to stage their own shows -- at every level of participation from ticket sales to sound engineering.
The Luna Andromeda was the first item auctioned and brought in $750.00 toward the capital campaign's final goal of $1.8 million. The new facility currently is under construction and scheduled to open in February.
