DC Pierson hosted a charity auction at Amoeba Hollywood

On Saturday, December 5th the amazingly funny author and comedian DC Pierson hosted a charity auction at Amoeba Hollywood to help us raise money for The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank! We teamed up with the awesome folks at NerdMelt for our December auction and DC Pierson offered up a vast and crazy array of concert tickets, gift certificates to local hot spots, collectibles and more cool stuff.

DC was quite simply H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S, with his zingers and deadpan delivery alternating with high adrenaline, pumping up the bids. "With all the characters at Amoeba today, we could start our own sitcom..." "Yeah, we're taking it THERE, yes we are." 

Some of the goodies we auctioned off on this "pre-holiday" auction:

All together DC and his band of bidders helped to raise $795.00! With with Amoeba Music's match, that means $1,590.00 is going directly to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank! This combined with our donation drive over the past two weeks will help feed so many people over the holidays. Thanks so much to DC and to all the people who come out to our auctions to support--it really makes a difference.
