LAWIM Helps Launch Program for Children of the Night

Gifting-12-2011UPDATE... Christmas comes to Children of the Night, thanks once again to YTN sponsor, Guitar It Up For Girls! On December 22nd, LAWIM President, Leanne Summers, visited the facility and presented the founder and director, Dr. Lois Lee, with a left-handed Jay Turser acoustic guitar to round out the guitar workshop program provided by Special Angel.




This guitar along with three other acoustic-electrics gifted at our September 17th YTN show help make the program possible for Children of the Night, a facility that provides shelter and education for at-risk kids. Pictured below are Special Angel Founder and President, Suzanne Geimer and guitar workshop instructor, Howie Anderson at the Children of the Night facility. A previously gifted red Daisy Rock guitar also travels with Special Angel regularly for their various outreach programs.

“With these acoustic Guitars4Children-of-the-Nightguitars, Special Angel can now provide music workshops to encourage self esteem and creative expression to the youth we work with. The addition of the guitar workshops gives us the ability to empower the kids to experience writing and performing their own songs, which in turn can open their hearts and minds to positive change and growth through music. Special Angel Band guitarist Howie Anderson will lead the workshops for participating kids,” said Geimer. Visit Special Angel


Children of the Night was founded in 1979. The organization rescues boys and girls who are in great need of help and protection and provides them with shelter and education.
