On February 25th 2012 a collection of New York musical acts over two stages will join forces with Gibson Guitars, Gotham Sound, Magnolia Bakery, IZZE Drinks and C'T'Z'N Wines to raise money for one of New York's most innovative not-for-profits, iMentor. We are delighted to be able to make use of a truly incredible space for this event in the form of the private Gibson NYC Artist Showroom. This space occupies the studios that formerly made up the legendary Hit Factory recording facility, one of the most storied in music history. Founded in 1999, iMentor's mission is to improve the lives of high school students from underserved communities through evidence-based, technology-enabled mentoring. Its New York City mentoring program now serves over 2,000 students annually and in 2007, iMentor launched iMentor Interactive (“iMi”) to help non-profits and schools implement high-quality mentoring programs using the proven iMentor model. iMi currently serves over 4,500 youth through partnerships with 50 organizations (including Junior Achievement, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Year Up) in 20 states. Doors open at 7pm and we ask for a donation of $20 at the door. There will be a fully stocked cash bar throughout the evening. ***Les Paul Underground Stage*** * TGB 10pm * Dusty Wright 9pm * Thornes 8pm ***Showcase Studio Bar*** Kylie Edmond 9.30pm Albert Del Rio 8.30pm Garth Steel 7.30pm
