Musical fundraiser at Monk’s

(Friday, Jan. 7)

Artists and musicians are coming together at Monk’s to raise money for music gear and instruction at a local school.

Bry Froehlich of the group New Old Future started the effort in honor of her sister, who was killed in a car crash in September.

The money raised goes to help start the Jasmine Venetia Stringed Instrument Library at Potomac School. Froehlich’s goal is to purchase nine guitars and necessary gear and to volunteer to teach the students.

Buy a $10 raffle ticket, you can have a chance to win a Peavey Predator Plus electric guitar, a Danelectro distortion pedal, a Blaque Owl Tattoo gift certificate and other arts and goodie bags.
