Sale of Custom Guitars to Help Fund Vets Memorial

KSAL StaffAugust 19, 2014

Event organizers hope the sale of five customized guitars at a fundraiser will raise $50,000 to support the construction of the Reno County Veterans’ Memorial.

The Hutchinson News reports the instruments will be covered in patriotic artwork and are to be auctioned off in November. Each of the four guitars will have artwork that will recognize the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy and Marines. The fifth guitar will display a stars and stripes design.

The cost to build the memorial is about $250,000. Any veteran born in Reno County or a resident for at least 10 years is eligible to be recognized at the memorial.

Its groundbreaking is expected to occur in 2015.
