Doctors Without BordersOn Saturday, September 1, 2012 we had a command performance from our good friend, mister funny Jason Boggs, as our guest auctioneer! Though the store was pretty quiet due to the weather and FYF Fest, Jason came out of the gate with the quips and the patter and started off the bidding with a signed Sarah Silverman DVD box set (from her recent signing) and that went for $20 BUCKS. And we were off...

The rest of the highlights were:

  • Coffee cup and Brew Coffee gift certificate - $10.00
  • DJ Lance Rock figure and Amoeba VIP in-store pass - $15.00
  • FYF Fest passes - $35.00 (such a deal)
  • Trader Joe's gift certificate and Star Trek lunchbox - $48.00
  • Animal Collective at the Hollywood Bowl tickets - $45.00
  • Record Store Day grab bag and Marilyn Monroe cup - $35.00
  • Wilco tickets - $45.00
  • Smashing Pumpkins signed canvas and Smog messenger bag - $65.00 (!!!)

All together, Jason was able to inspire the people to bid and we raised $320.00 for Doctors Without Borders - which when doubled is $640.00 - going to a very worthy organization which continues to do amazing work. Another successful auction Saturday at Amoeba Hollywood.
