YUMA – Two Yuma businesses are partnering to raise funds in support of the Humane Society of Yuma. Through an effort called Rockinâ€™ Art for the Paws, five hundred tickets are available for the chance to win a one-of-a-kind Stratocaster guitar by Fender.
The body of the guitar is graphically enhanced with art from The Walking Dead comics. Details for the July 5th drawing will be announced.
Tickets are available for $10 each, with 100% of the proceeds benefiting HSOYâ€™s spay/neuter clinic.
In addition to educating the public about humane treatment of all animals, HSOY provided alteration surgery for over 5,400 companion animals last year.
According to Alicia Robles, HSOY special events coordinator, the need continues to be great this year.Â Revenues from this fundraiser will be very much appreciated!
Working from an idea conceived by Jon M. Perry at Imaginary Friends design studios, Fretworks! Music Center provided the guitar.
Fretworksâ€™ manager Lisa Rammeltâ€™s own companion animals were adopted from HSOY, so she knows the valuable services provided by our local humane society.Â The donated guitar is her way to say â€œthank youâ€.
Renowned Las Vegas artist Tracy Nicole enhanced the guitar, using original artistry from The Walking Dead series of comic books.
Valuable in their own rights, these designs have made a Fender Stratocaster truly a one-of-a-kind piece of Rockinâ€™ Art.
Tickets and promotional materials for the drawing were designed, printed and provided compliments of Imaginary Friends design studios.
The Rockinâ€™ Art guitar will be on display thru June at Fretworks! Music Center, 1150 S. Castle Dome Avenue.
