LOS ANGELES, CA — West L.A. Music donated a Fender Stratocaster autographed by top country music artists to the 14th Annual Hollywood Charity Horse Show. The show is hosted by William Shatner each year and benefits three Los Angeles area children's charities.
Ahead with Horses is a therapeutic riding organization which teaches mobility and adaptability to severely disabled children. Camp Max Straus provides underprivileged kids with recreational activities including a summer camp and sports mentoring program. Tilden's Children is part of L.A. Family Housing which helps homeless and low-income kids look forward to a positive future.
The guitars were signed at KZLA's Country Bash, held at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, California on October 11, 2003. West L.A. Music's General Manager Rick Waite and President Don Griffin had the guitars signed by country music stars Jo Dee Messina, Reba McEntire, LeAnn Rimes, Kid Rock, Joe Nichols, Jennifer Hanson, Dierks Bentley, Rick Trevino and Jimmy Wayne, members of Lonestar, Trick Pony and The Derailers and actors John Schneider and Peter Reckell.
The guitar was one of many items to bid on during the live auction event that was part of Shatner's Horse Show held on May 1, 2004 at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center. Thousands of dollars were raised for the three charities when the signed guitar was auctioned off.
West L.A. Music supplies equipment for major artists, recording studios, broadcast companies, film and video post production facilities, producers, composers and record companies, as well as schools, religious organizations and government agencies.
