A donation event will be conducted at the intersection of Balboa Boulevard and Strathern Street in Van Nuys, CA on January 14, 2023, from 10:30 am to Noon. Please visit norarosehinesfoundation.org. for more information. Anyone wishing to donate, but unable to attend the event may also contact Pat Hines at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for a pickup.
In her short life, Nora Rose-Hines enjoyed nothing more than playing her guitar and sharing her incredible music with others. For years she spent her summer vacations at a Guatemalan orphanage, performing her music for the children, encouraging them to explore their own creativity and building their confidence by playing the guitar. Nora was surely destined to continue sharing the power of her music with children the world over, but we will never know. Four years ago, on November 29, 2018, Nora died in a car crash. She was only 19 years old. To continue Nora’s love and legacy, the Nora Rose-Hines Foundation is launching Guitars4Kids.
