Lamb of God’s Mark Morton Auctions Off Guitar for Charity
Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton is auctioning off a guitar from his personal collection to support the Victory Junction charity, a camp for chronically ill children based in Randelman, North Carolina. Morton performed with the guitar -- a Mark Morton signature model Jackson Dominion -- at the D-Tox fest in Montebello, Quebec.
The winning bidder will receive much more than a rote certificate of authenticity. The instrument will be autographed and comes with a photograph from the D-Tox performance, as well as a personal note from Morton himself.
"I can't put into words how excited I am to be working with Victory Junction," Morton said in a statement. "The work they do is astounding. To have the opportunity to contribute to such an incredible cause is nothing short of an honor. I had the chance to spend some time at the camp recently, and to see what they're doing warmed my heart and soul. I hope anybody reading this will take a few minutes to check out this wonderful organization. Together, the camp, my wife and I are putting together some BIG ideas for the future and we are simply thrilled to be a part of it!"
Victory Junction is a year-round camping environment for children ages six to 16 who battle chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses. A second location is expected to open in Kansas City in the near future. The organization's mission is to provide life-changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun, and empowering in a safe and medically-sound environment. As a non-profit organization, the camp operates solely through the support of generous individuals, groups and corporations to provide this experience at no charge to the children and their families.
More info about how to bid on the Mark Morton guitar will be announced shortly.
