About Amoeba’s Charity Auctions:
In early September 2005 , Amoeba Music started AMOEBA AUCTIONS, an on-going weekly auction to help raise money for the Gulf Coast Relief Efforts. Every first Saturday of the month, our Hollywood store auctions items which include memorabilia, collectables, promotional items, concert tickets, plus much, much more. To help increase funds, Amoeba is matching all individual donations and accepted bids up to $1,000.
Auctions have included everything from Slayer promotional underwear and Michael Jackson puffy stickers (with winning bids of $5 – $20) to Brian Wilson box seats for 4 at the Hollywood Bowl which went for $550 and a pair of tickets to the sold-out Supergrass show for $200. And with Amoeba matching all the bids, each items brings in double the money!
