LOS ANGELES, CA – August 2010 - Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, the original girl-guitar company, continues its philanthropic efforts to support all women who are interested in playing guitar and enjoying music by donating instruments to local Los Angeles charity, Covenant House California, and their musical program, Running Wild in the Night.
Founded by Mötley Crüe’s bassist, Nikki Sixx, the Running Wild in the Night program is one of the programs offered by Covenant House California, providing those participants who are interested a chance to learn, practice, and perform music. “I love what Nikki has created with this initiative,” commented Tish Ciravolo, Daisy Rock Founder and President. “Music is definitely one thing I run to when I have fallen upon hard times, and it’s simply amazing to give these teens a chance to experience what music can do for one’s life. Once I found out about this program, there was no doubt I wanted to find some way for Daisy Rock to help.”
The largest non-profit agency serving homeless, trafficked, and at-risk youth in the state, Covenant House California has been impacting the lives of more than 150,000 youths in the Hollywood area since 1988 and the Bay Area since 1998. Open all-year round and 24 hours a day, this agency not only offers those in need a bed and a hot meal, but also hope, education, job training, life skills, medical attention, mental health counseling, and many opportunities to turn their lives around. In addition to the instruments donated, all proceeds from Daisy Rock Girl Guitars’ annual charity concert event, Pretty in Punk, will also be given to the Running Wild in the Night music program.
Daisy Rock Girl Guitars offers a complete line of guitars designed to look and sound great, and to fit the female form.
