"Daniel and Steve,
Thank you so much for bringing Elliot to performance and lecture for the students today. It was an honor to have a musician of this level interact with the students and open their minds to so many musical and social ideas. I could have personally listened to him speak all day. He is a tremendous talent and inspiration and I appreciate all of your time and interest in sharing him with us today."

On May 5, 2015, the Sacramento Guitar Society will participate in the annual 24 hour Big Day of Giving. Last year, SGS raised over $8,000 in donations from 62 gifts, $1,000 in a foundation grant, and $800 in Prize Challenges for SGS--almost double our goal of $5,000.
Our goal this year is to make $10,000 and have over 100 donations.
Why Donate? Your donation helps SGS continue to produce fantastic concerts and events while also supporting school outreach, guitar camps, and pursuing year-long guitar instruction scholarships for low-income students wanting to learn to play guitar.
Here is how you can help SGS reach our goals:
1. See the Sacramento Guitar Society's Giving Edge Profile on
$1,500 will be given to the nonprofit that receives the most unique visits to their Giving Edge profile between April 20th - May 5th. A unique visit means each person can only earn credit for one visit to a profile. We can win this Prize Challenge!
