As a result of a successful partnership in 2018, Guitar Center, the world’s largest musical instrument retailer, and D’Addario, the world’s largest manufacturer of musical instrument accessories, will launch a fundraising campaign for the second year in a row to raise funds to support the advancement of girls in music this Friday, March 8, 2019 on International Women’s Day.
In 2018, the two companies raised $30,000, which was donated to the D’Addario Foundation’s Music Education for Girls Initiative, which provides young women with the resources they need to study music, as well as the support needed for personal and professional music education growth. This vital support not only serves to motivate girls to continue playing, but also to nurture girls through their educational journey.
This year, 50 percent of the proceeds from all D’Addario products sold at a Guitar Center retail store or online at www.guitarcenter.com on March 8, 2019 were donated to the D’Addario Foundation’s Music Education for Girls Initiative.
