SPECTRA LAUNCHES GUITAR AUCTIONS TO BENEFIT LOCAL CHARITIES

Spectra, operators of the Tribute Communities Centre, launched an auction this week of autographed guitars which will benefit Grandview Children’s Centre and the Heart & Stroke Foundation.

A myriad of artists that performed at the Tribute Communities Centre in Oshawa supported the initiative throughout 2017 and 2018 including Dierks Bentley, Dean Brody, Johnny Reid, Tim Hicks, Judas Priest, Arkells, Our Lady Peace, and many more.

“After the success of the guitar auctions in 2017, we wanted to continue this initiative as giving back is a priority for us at Spectra. We were able to raise and donate $3,181 amongst the Canadian Cancer Society, Distress Centre Durham, and the Canadian Mental Health Association-Durham through the auction of three guitars,” said William Balfour, Assistant General Manager and Director of Marketing and Group Sales for Spectra. “We are ecstatic with the artists’ responses again this year and we’re hopeful that fans in the community will bid on these collector guitars and that it will be a big win for the charities.”

Below are details on the two guitars that are being auctioned:
