For the last month, areas all over the United States have been hit with major flooding and tornadoes.
One of the first areas hit the hardest by flooding was Poplar Bluff, MO. More than 20 inches of rain fell in a two week span, flooding the river and causing several levee breaches. More than 1000 people were evacuated and many more voluntarily left their homes to stay safe from the waters.
The Black River Coliseum in Poplar Bluff served as home to over 300 folks (and through the efforts of the Animal Alliance, over 100 pets). The band Godsmack had a concert scheduled for April 30th in the Black River Coliseum, but since mosh pits and shelter cots tend not to mix well, they and the Coliseum rescheduled to May 10th.
The band members wanted to do something to help with the flood relief and came up with the idea to raffle a guitar. An Epiphone Limited Edition Studio Delux electric guitar, donated by K Square, Inc (the St. Louis agency that books shows at the Coliseum), was played by Godsmack lead singer Sully Erna during the concert. Afterwords, the entire band signed the guitar.
The guitar then will go to the winner of a raffle where proceeds are 100% going to:
