My Music Store will hold its 15th annual Guitar Toss event in the parking lot of the Golden Valley Shopping Center on Saturday, July 26, from 12:30 – 4:00 PM.


For only $1 a toss – or “a buck a chuck” – kids and adults alike can throw a guitar and attempt to land it in a dumpster. Immediate prizes are given to those who are successful; additionally, every toss enters the thrower in a drawing, to be held the following week, for even bigger prizes that include musical instruments and merchandise.


My Music Store co-owner Jim Harms commented: “For the drawing, we’ve received prize donations from many of our vendors and previous sponsors, all of whom have been wonderfully generous throughout the many years we’ve been doing the Guitar Toss.”


All proceeds from My Music Store’s Guitar Toss event benefit the Animal Humane Society based in Golden Valley. “Every dollar collected during the Guitar Toss goes directly to the Animal Humane Society,” said co-owner Linda Morris. “My Music Store donates all of the set-up costs. Employees and volunteers donate their time.”


My Music Store’s Guitar Toss is a family event. There will be live music from local bands.
