Canadian musician Greg Godovitz (Goddo) enlisted dozens of famous Canadian musicians, including Rush's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson, to sign an acoustic guitar that was recently auctioned off for over $28K, with funds going to assist Canadians in British Columbia that were affected by flooding due to heavy rainfall early last month. In addition to Rush, members of Triumph, Anvil, Barenaked Ladies, Blue Rodeo, Styx, and many others signed the guitar, with the complete list of signatures available here. The two very generous Toronto residents who posted the winning bid of $28,765 are Jessica Reid and Chris Gallatly. Here's a CityNews video story posted last week which shows some of the devastation caused by the flooding along with Godovitz explaining why he decided to organize the auction. Thanks to RushFanForever for the heads up.
