Jason McGillivray is a luthier in Calgary. He wants to support this family and felt the auction of this guitar was a fitting tribute to the girls.  It is made from woods local to their area, and as it makes music in years ahead, will contribute to keeping their memory alive.

100% of proceeds go to Bott Family Trust.
