Fender is helping support the fight against autism by donating a custom Telecaster to Love Ride 28, the annual motorcycle-based fundraiser that attracts thousands to Castaic Lake each year.
Taking place on Oct. 23 and organized by Harley Davidson of Glendale, Calif., the event features a bike ride, stunts and appearances from celebrities such as Jay Leno.
The Fender guitar is adorned with the Love Ride 28 logo and will be autographed by performers Montgomery Gentry.
Everyone who purchases a ticket to the charitable fundraiser is entered into the sweepstakes to win the guitar, as well as other prizes. Leno will even give a tour of his garage.
Love Ride founder Oliver Shokouh said Fender’s donation “is exactly what the spirit of Love Ride is all about,” in a statement.
Proceeds will benefit Autism Speaks, a national organization that raises awareness about the disorder.
