Several of music’s top artists have pitched in to help guitarist Jeff Golub, who suddenly lost his vision a few months ago. Golub has been undergoing extensive testing to diagnose his situation with the hope of finding a means to restore his vision.
The Help 4 Jeff Golub Online Auction has been created with contributions from many of Golub’s colleagues, friends, and fans. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go towards Golub’s medical expenses.
