Treasure Coast Music Festival
September 2011 - Guitar It Up for Girls was backstage at the Treasure Coast Music Festival in Vero Beach, Florida with The Backstage Divas. The music festival was a three day event packed with some really rockin’ bands. We met Cat Shell, Amanda Overmyer, former American Idol finalist, Suite Caroline, Brian Howe, former lead singer of Bad Company, Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, Dr. Hook featuring Ray Sawyer, Player, Pat Travers, and a lot more.
We donated a guitar to be signed by the band members who performed and raffled off to one lucky winner at the festival. The proceeds went to the Mardy Fish Foundation whose mission is to provide children access to after school exercise, nutritional and enrichment programs in a safe environment to prepare them for healthy, productive and successful lives so they can achieve their dreams.
The winner, Dawn Furtado, a Ft. Pierce resident, was currently undergoing chemotherapy in a fight against breast cancer and considers herself a cancer ‘warrior.’
