Charity Auction for Signed Jimmy Buffett Guitar

August 7th, 2008


The Teacher Gloria Omololu Institute (TGOI) located on the beautiful Caribbean island of Anguilla, BWI invites you to bid on this genuine Jimmy Buffett and Bankie Banx signed Fender guitar package which includes the guitar, a hard cover case, a certificate of authenticity as well as the “Live in Anguilla” DVD that was filmed the weekend of the signing of this stunning guitar.

This collectors item is being auctioned for charity and is a left handed acoustic Fender with a rosewood neck and blonde Birchwood top and was donated to TGOI by Anguilla’s own international reggae artist – Banxie Banx, an internationally renown reggea artist and owner of the Dune Preserve, the home of the annual Moonsplash reggae festival. Bankie, who is the father of three TGOI students, is a long time friend of Jimmy Buffett, having performed with him in many concerts, including the Moonsplash 2007 “Stuck in Paradise” charity event. Jimmy Buffett magnanimously donated the proceeds of that concert, which totaled$120’000, to Anguillian charities.

The guitar was signed by Jimmy Buffett and Bankie during the the “Stuck in Paradise” concert and is made available as part of the 1st Annual Anguilla Invitational Golf Classic event, which aims to raise funds to support the nonprofit Teacher Gloria Omololu Institute, which fosters the holistic development of its students on moral, spiritual, physical, intellectual, emotional, and psychosocial levels, for over a decade. The institute which is accessible to all students through its scholarship and financial assistance programmes, presently caters to preschool and primary aged children. It is now constructing its own campus, using traditional Anguillian architecture, to create a nurturing learning village.
