At the final concert of the Maudslay Arts Center (MAC) 2019 Summer Concert Series, jazz vocalist Amanda Carr drew the winning raffle ticket for the Les Paul Epiphone guitar. The winner was Renee Hamel.
Donated by Coastal Connections, Inc., of Amesbury, the guitar was personally autographed by many of the 2019 Summer Concert Series musicians.
On Oct. 28, 2018 a large maple tree cracked during a coastal windstorm and fell right through the roof of the MAC Concert Barn causing extensive damage, which was not covered by insurance. Although many loyal supporters sent checks to assist in the repairs, there remained much to do.
Thanks to Coastal Connections and the support of loyal patrons, MAC was able to raffle off the guitar and cover the costs of repairs.
