Recap: April Charity Auction to Benefit Silverlake Conservatory

Posted by Amoebite, April 9, 2013 11:40am | Post a Comment

Silverlake conservatory of musicOn Saturday, April 6th, we had comedian Dave Ross as our guest auctioneer for April's charity auction benefiting Silverlake Conservatory. He auctioned off a crazy array of items, from movie and music collectibles to concert tickets and gift certificates. And as always, Amoeba matched all individual bids.

Dave Ross is a stand-up comedian and storyteller in Los David rossAngele. He is the creator of the wildly successful Holy F*ck comedy show and a MOTH GrandSlam winner. You might have seen him on Tosh.0 with his sketch group, WOMEN, or heard him telling stories on KCRW. But up on the podium at Amoeba's monthly charity aution is where he really shined. His extremely dry and droll sense of humor had the shoppers and onlookers chuckling under their collectives breaths and looking over at each other as if to say, "Wait, did he just say what I think he said?"

Silverlake Conservatory is a non-profit organization, created in 2001 to fill a void in the cultural landscape of the community. They offer the people in the area the opportunity to study music with exceptional teachers at a reasonable price, while also donating lessons and instruments to deserving children. They will also be the Hollywood store’s RECORD STORE DAY beneficiary for our prize wheel and the live silkscreening.

Dave Ross helped us raise a great amount of money, all going directly to music education for needy kids and families in Silver Lake and Echo Park, via Silverlake Conservatory!
