Orange County Choppers Private Tour
Gibson Guitar Auction
With some of the most prominent musicians of today coming together on Veterans Day there are sure to be some big surprises. Two of those surprises could actually end up in your hands! Gibson Guitar has donated 2 custom Les Paul guitars which are currently on their way down to Florida to receive a custom paint job. Once they get back here to New York City they will be autographed by some of the musicians and celebrities performing at the “Unity For Vets Concert” on 11.11.11.
Unity For Vet’s is excited to have Gibson Guitars join in our concert to support veterans, service members, and their families. They have been tremendous supporters of veterans and we are proud to partner with them as we continue on our mission to support the military community.
In the next two week we will establish an auction page where the guitars and other items will be displayed online. You will be able to place your bids on these items and all funds generated from the items that are won will go to directly fund the services portion of HonorVet.org. Don’t wait to get your bid on as there will surely be many people chomping at the bit to try and win a one of a kind Les Paul Guitar!
The Magic of Carl Michael
HonorVet is proud to announce that Carl Michael, a rising young star, will be giving special performances for our Guests in the VIP Lounge as well as for early arrivals in front of the Theater.
From childhood, Carl Michael has immersed himself in the study and practice of magic and illusion. His voracious quest for perfection, relentless work ethic, enormous talent, and astonishing skill and creativity have yielded one of the most brilliant young illusionists of our day. You must see it to believe it!!
