LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Roots Music Shop, a small business in central Lincoln, is going the extra mile this holiday season to help out local community member Lea Peterson.
Peterson has been battling cancer for some time, and recently his health has deteriorated during increased cycles of chemotherapy.
According to Ryan Larsen, Lea is a member of the stand-up community, supporting Lincoln’s music scene and local musicians. Throughout her career as a preschool teacher, Peterson often took her students to Roots Education’s musical exploration program.
To achieve their goal of reducing stress throughout the holiday season, Roots Music Shop has personalized a personalized Pink Paisley Telecaster. The guitar is auctioned for $ 12 per ticket with no limit on the number of tickets that can be purchased.
The auction will end on January 2 and a winner will be chosen on that day. All proceeds will be donated to Lea to help her cope with the financial burden of cancer treatment.
To publicize the auction, local musicians took turns in the shop to show off the characteristics of the guitar.
