As part of Clear Channel Radio’s ongoing support of relief efforts for the communities effected by Hurricane Charley, the company is auctioning off 43 celebrity-signed guitars on www.StormAid.com. The site will feature one of the largest charity auctions in radio history with guitars autographed by Robert Plant, George Thorogood, Tom Petty, Sammy Hagar, Stone Temple Pilots, ZZ Top, Kenny Rogers, Wynonna Judd, Incubus, The Strokes, Linkin Park, Britney Spears and many other artists and celebrities. All proceeds will go directly to displaced families and the Red Cross.
The auction on www.StormAid.com begins promptly at 3PM ET today and will end at 3PM ET on September 20, 2004. “Clear Channel Radio is participating in local relief efforts and holding a variety of local fundraisers across the country to aid Florida hurricane victims,” said John Hogan, president and chief executive officer of Clear Channel Radio. “Our Florida radio stations have been especially active. They were broadcasting around the clock before, during and after the hurricane, and are participating in and promoting ongoing relief efforts. This auction is another way for individuals to support those in need. At the same time, the guitars are great pieces of memorabilia for any music fan.”
To offer support of the people of Florida, Clear Channel Radio encourages you to call the American Red Cross at 202-303-5551 or visit www.redcross.org .
