Local musicians host auction to help Lincoln woman battling cancer
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Roots Music Shop, a small business in central Lincoln, is taking the extra step this holiday season to help a local community member, Lea Peterson.
Peterson has been battling cancer for a while, and recently her health took a downward turn during increased rounds of chemo.
According to Ryan Larsen, Lea is a stand-up community member, supporting Lincoln’s music scene and local musicians. Throughout her time as a preschool teacher, Peterson would often bring her students to Roots Education’s musical exploratory program.
To achieve their goal of alleviating stress throughout the holiday season, Roots Music Shop customized a custom Pink Paisley Telecaster. The Guitar is being auctioned off at $12 a ticket with no limit to how many tickets may be purchased.
The auction will end on January 2nd, with a winner being picked that day, all proceeds will be turned over to Lea to help her with the financial burdens of cancer treatment.
