Tim Simons at AmoebaOn Saturday, July 7 we had our monthly charity auction at Amoeba Hollywood, this time with the hilarious musings and dry quips from Tim Simons, actor and comedian from the HBO show Veep. Tim was pinch-hitting for Matt Walsh, also from Veep and the movie High Road, who had a last minute conflict.

Tim was so gracious and such a good sport stepping in - never having experienced one of our auctions - but his droll sense of humor and his relaxed wry way of nudging up the bids was awesome! We had quite a crowd around the DJ booth, and folks were filling the aisles of used and new rock during the 40 minute auction to benefit Camp Crescent Moon, the nation's first and oldest summer camp for children with sickle cell disease between the ages of 8-14 years.

Here are a few of the highlights:
  • Doctor Who signed Blu-ray $36.00
  • KISS Collector's Glass Set with Natural History Museum passes $22.00
  • X Games Skate Deck $15.00
  • Madonna Foil Poster $10.00
  • Record Store Day Limited Bag and Shirt with 45s $32.00
  • Ariel Pink tickets with T-Rex t-shirt  $50
  • Eskuche Headphones with Chemical Brothers Mousepad $25.00
  • Trader Joe's Gift Card with Lil Rascals Lunchbox $46.00
  • Family Guy DVD set $25.00
  • Motley Crue signed book $10.00

All together the peeps bid $533.00 and with the Amoeba MATCH it means $1,066.00 for Camp Crescent Moon!!! YES!! Nicely done.

Thanks SO much to everyone who helps get these things together. This is a great thing we are able to do each month!
