The Top THREE Fundraisers Win Awesome Prizes

The Gala Afterglow is our year-end giving campaign for 2017. And we have very special PRIZES for the top fundraisers in each prize category who raise the most money to provide free services to the women who visit Sound Choices!


Prize #1 – This guitar is a handcrafted one of a kind instrument created by Charles Carlisle. ($2,500 Value; Minimum Fundraising Goal To Win)

This guitar sounds amazing!

The face is made from Zebra Wood featuring mini F holes and a sound hole that is highlighted with cultured stone. The sides are African mahogany and the back is African mahogany, with a Sapele mahogany and cultured stone stripe down the center. The body has a quad edge binding of Maple, Walnut, Alder and Mahogany on the front and back. Inside, just behind the face, is a Western Red Cedar baffle producing a beautiful tone and greater sustain. The fret board is made from Ebony with Maple edging and a unique inlayed rope design of two-part epoxy. The neck was created using seven different types of wood that were laminated together to give it great stability and houses a two-way adjustable Hotrod truss rod. The saddle and the nut are from the same cultured stone that is inlayed around the sound hole. The Carlisle logo is laser cut into the head which is made of Cherry and wrapped with Maple. The finish on the guitar consists of two coats of lacquer sanding sealer, five coats of semi-gloss lacquer and three coats of wax which were all sanded or buffed between each coat.

Every Carlisle guitar holds a signed and numbered certificate of authenticity. An amazing treasure for a guitar enthusiast!
