FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Bob Tabarrini founded the Lewis P. Tabarrini  Children's Musical Outreach Foundation eight years ago to help spread the love of music his father gave him when he was a child. Today the foundation has helped more than 100 children throughout Lee County and Tabarrini's goal is to give a guitar to every child who wants to learn to play the instrument. 

Tabarrini is dedicated to giving guitar lessons and instruments to children who are interested at no cost to the families. The first group of kids to finish the program graduated in 2010. Tabarrini is dedicated to getting into school buildings soon, to make it easier for children to get to the classes. 

Tabarrini is hosting a charity bachelor auction to help raise money to continue to pay for lessons and guitars for the children who turn to the foundation to get a music education.
