North Carolina custom guitar builder Jay Lichty has partnered up with John Cash of Nature’s Storehouse, located in Tryon, NC to raise awareness and to raise funds for the cancer survivorship and research programs by the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

“We have found guitar raffles to be an effective way for Lichty Guitars to give back to our community and to help raise awareness about causes we are passionate about,” shares Corrie Woods of Lichty Guitars. Through the 2012 Guitar Raffle for the Lance Armstrong Foundation people have an opportunity to win a one-of-a-kind handcrafted guitar built by Lichty while supporting a great cause.

Most people’s lives are touched by cancer, either as a personal health challenge or as a diagnosis and battle fought by someone close. The Lance Armstrong Foundation has raised over 400 million dollars going to cancer survivorship programs, support programs, research and awareness building campaigns. Proceeds from this raffle will go to the Lance Armstrong Foundation.

The Raffle Guitar is a handmade dreadnought guitar with a cutaway body style. The back and sides are hormigo and the top is cedar. The retail value of this guitar is $4,700. See and hear this guitar at
