Lamb of God guitarist Mark Morton is pleased to announce that he will be auctioning one of his stage guitars used at the upcoming D-Tox Fest in Montebello, Quebec for charity. All proceeds from the auction will go to Victory Junction, a camp for chronically ill children in Randleman, NC. The guitar, a Mark Morton Signature model Jackson Dominion from Mark's personal collection, will be autographed and will come with photographs from the performance and a personal letter of appreciation from Mark. More details on the start date of the auction will be announced soon.

“I can't put into words how excited I am to be working with Victory Junction,” states Morton. “The work they do is astounding. To have the opportunity to contribute to such an incredible cause is nothing short of an honor. I had the chance to spend some time at the camp recently, and to see what they're doing warmed my heart and soul. I hope anybody reading this will take a few minutes to check out this wonderful organization. Together, the camp, my wife and I are putting together some BIG ideas for the future and we are simply thrilled to be a part of it!”

Victory Junction is a year round camping environment for children ages six to sixteen with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses. Founded by Kyle and Pattie Petty in honor of their son Adam, the camp is located in Randleman, NC, with a second location opening soon in Kansas City, KS. Victory Junction offers programs for a range of disease groups and maintains strong relationships with more than 30 partner hospitals. Victory Junction's mission is to provide life-changing camping experiences that are exciting, fun and empowering, in a safe and medically-sound environment. As a non-profit organization, the camp operates solely through the support of generous individuals, groups and corporations to provide this experience at no charge to children and their families.

Stay tuned to the Victory Junction website and Lamb of God website for more details on the upcoming auction.
