The annual Little Kids Rock Benefit is the nation’s premier annual benefit event supporting music education in public schools, and has been Little Kids Rock’s largest fundraising event each year since 2009. That year, Clarence Clemons was honored for his devotion to helping Little Kids Rock build a world, via music, where children can lead rich, purposeful lives. Since then, millions of dollars have been raised, dozens of musical luminaries have come out to support, and hundreds of thousands of schoolchildren have received the transformational gift of music education.
Now is your chance to take home a new Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong ES-137 guitar along with some hot Gibson accessories! As the premier punk rocker of his generation, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong doesn’t compromise on style, tone or attitude. His signature guitar reflects just that – raw tone and that oozes style. In addition to this amazing guitar, you also receive a Gibson bar stool, a Gibson modern vintage guitar strap, a Gibson pure premium instrument cable, and a Gibson hoodie sweatshirt!
