PARMA, Ohio — A guitar signed by late legendary singer-songwriter Michael Stanley has been included in a raffle with proceeds from each ticket benefitting local area food banks.

Before 2020 shut down concerts and event across the country, Stanley autographed a guitar on March 25, 2020, to be raffled at an event benefitting Hot Rod for Hunger, sponsored by the Parma-South Presbyterian Church.

Since the 2020 event was canceled, the guitar is back in the raffle, with tickets costing $20 per entry.

The raffle will benefit food centers in Parma and Parma Heights and one-third of proceeds will benefit the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.

Prior to his death on March 5, Stanley penned a farewell letter to his friends, family and fans. 98.5 WNCX shared his last message on their Facebook page.

"Hey gang...Well, if you're reading this then I am off to catch up with that big club tour in the sky. But before the bus pulls out I wanted to thank all of you for being a part of my musical journey, both on the stage, on record, and behind the microphone here at WNCX," he wrote.
