Introducing the Pisgah Banjo Co. Raffle!RAFFLE OPENS APRIL 4th, 2017
New in 2017! LEAF’s annual instrument raffle will feature PBCO’s Woodchuck Banjo. The Woodchuck is made from sustainable local hardwoods and materials, and all metal parts are made in the USA! Western North Carolina native, Patrick Heavner and his team of makers hand build open back banjos at his shop in Fairview, North Carolina.
Instrument builders with a mission
In keeping with their mission of being a sustainable company, Pisgah Banjo Co. has made it a priority to generate 100% of their energy from the sun. PBCO employs a 7.2 KW photovoltaic solar array on the roof of the banjo shop. This will supply all of the energy needed for banjo production and then some. Additionally, they source all of their tone woods from local and regional saw mills and suppliers. PBCO’s hope is to make this practice mainstream and reduce the dependence on exotic hardwoods all around.
Tickets are $10 each. Only 500 tickets will be sold.
100% of proceeds will support LEAF Schools & Streets and LEAF International programming.
