Garden City, NY (PRWEB) May 24, 2005
Jay Turser Guitars, distributed by Music Industries Corp., donated a JT-Warlord Electric Guitar to the Ninth Annual Skylar Neil Memorial Charity Golf Tournament and Auction, held May 5, 2005, at the Malibu Country Club, in Malibu, California. The final bid on the Jay Turser Warlord instrument, which was autographed by Vince Neil of Motley Crue, brought in $ 1,400.00 which contributed to the more than $ 51,000.00 that was raised during the event for Cancer, Leukemia and AIDS research.
In 1995, Vince Neil, lead vocalist of Motley Crue, lost his daughter Skylar to stomach cancer. Since that time Vince has endeavored to help raise awareness and much needed funding for children’s illnesses. The Skylar Neil Memorial Foundation has donated nearly a million dollars to various charity organizations for Cancer, Leukemia and AIDS research, and neurogenetic disorders such as autism, Down Syndrome and Williams Syndrome. All of the proceeds from The Skylar Neil Memorial Charity Golf Tournament and Auction are given to these charities so that they can continue their good work.
