The 1st Saturday of Every Month at Amoeba Hollywood - 4PM
In early September 2005 , Amoeba Hollywood began hosting Amoeba Auctions, an on-going weekly auction to help raise money for the Gulf Coast Relief Efforts. The first Saturday of every month, our Hollywood store continues to auction off items which include memorabilia, collectibles, promotional items, concert tickets, plus much, much more. To help increase funds, Amoeba matches all individual donations and accepted bids up to $1,000!
Auctions have included everything from Slayer promotional underwear and Michael Jackson puffy stickers (with winning bids of $5 - $20) and Devo hats, to Brian Wilson box seats for 4 at the Hollywood Bowl which went for $550 and a pair of tickets to the sold-out Supergrass show for $200, along with gift certificates from our generous neighbors (Trader Joe's, Laemmle Theaters, Arclight, Intelligensia Coffee, and others) . And with Amoeba matching all the bids, each items brings in double the money!
Since 2005 we have raised more than $400,000 for various charities through our auctions, on-site customer donations, Amoeba's matching contributions, and special events!
