Join us for the return of Amoeba's prodigal son, Brently Heilbron, the original host of our charity auctions! Brently will be hosting a charity auction at Amoeba Hollywood to benefit Inner-City Arts Saturday, August 6th at 4pm. We've uncovered a treasure trove of crazy collectibles and promo items for Brently to auction off, not to mention concert tickets to see Kraftwerk at the Hollywood Bowl and Culture Club at the Hollywood Bowl; gift certificates from our amazing neighbors; and lots more goodies you never knew you had to have.
Our charity auctions began back in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina ravaged Louisiana. What started as an effort to help the Gulf Coast relief efforts has turned into an 11 year commitment to supporting organizations ranging from Doctors Without Borders to the Los Angeles LGBT Center and an incredible $450,000+ being raised through our charity auctions.
At every auction Amoeba matches all winning bids up to $1,000, doubling the amount of money going to charity. We do this with the help of our partners and friends who donate their goods for the auction and the generosity of our customers who come down to the auctions and open up their wallets and their hearts.
