Ernie Ball’s autographed guitar is one of many items offered as a raffle prize to individuals who have donated to the Our Sacrifice fundraiser. Ernie Ball endorsees participating in the project include the Eagles, Gretchen Wilson, Joe Walsh, Sammy Hagar, Kenny Chesney, Buddy Guy and Charlie Daniels.
“I think it’s great that Ernie Ball is participating in this event,” said Mark Reis, Our Sacrifice creator and guitar tech for legendary Ernie Ball endorsee Joe Walsh of the Eagles. “It’s exciting that manufacturers like Ernie Ball are uniting to help support both the soldiers and their families, as there is a great need across our country for this right now.”
The Our Sacrifice video runs to the musical track of the same name and has recently been turned into a fundraiser to benefit several organizations including Stars for Stripes, Operation Pinecone, Sew Much Comfort, the 9/11 Help America Foundation, The Kevin Downs Foundation, and the 1st Lt. Rob Seidel Fund. Anyone making a donation to Our Sacrifice is automatically entered to win one of the fundraiser’s fabulous collector prizes, which currently include 16 autographed guitars, an autographed helmet from Indy racer Al Unser Jr. and various other pieces of musical equipment. Drawings start in October and run through 2008, with two lucky winners each month.
