Guitars not Guns

The Guitars Not Guns – Greensboro Chapter will co-host a fundraiser with Elon Law School’s Pro Bono Board this Friday. The event takes place at the Greensboro Cultural Center. Guitars not Guns is an outreach program that seeks to provide free guitar lessons to at-risk youth between the ages of 8-18. “Using music as a catalyst we encourage children and teens to use their creativity to foster personal development and to help divert them from self-destructive influences such as drugs, alcohol and gang-related activities,” the group’s Facebook page states. “By providing free guitars and lessons we hope to engage their creative potential and help them achieve their dreams.”Popular Elon Law professor Eric Fink will get the music started at 6:30 p.m. For more information visit the event’s Facebook page.
