WLOY Auctions Autographed Guitar For Charity

Loyola College's WLOY is auctioning off an autographed Epiphone Les Paul to raise money for the Middle Grades Partnership. The Baltimore-based college radio station worked with music venue Ramshead Live! to obtain signatures from a variety of luminaries. Artists that put their John Hancock on the guitar include: Lindsey Buckingham, Bob Weir, Zakk Wylde, Peter Frampton, Breaking Benjamin, Joe Satriani, Michael Timmins of the Cowboy Junkies and Keb' Mo'.

The Middle Grades Partnership provides access to private school resources and teachers for promising public middle students. Last year, WLOY raised more than $10,000 in recovery aid for Xavier University in New Orleans. As part of the campus-wide Year Of The City initiative, the Loyola College student body focused on volunteer work within their own community.

"We realized that we were all fortunate to be able to attend college, but for some of Baltimore's youth, the reality is that they will never even graduate high school," says station general manager Tim McGee. "The Middle Grades Partnership was selected with the goal of helping Baltimore City youth overcome the barriers preventing them from fully embracing the educational opportunities that this community has to offer."

Bidding for the guitar will begin October 12 on eBay.
