Andy Kindler Charity Auction at Amoeba Hollywood

On Saturday, February 6th, we once again teamed up with the Nerdmelt folks for a charity auction at Amoeba Hollywood to benefit Best Friends Animal Society's NKLA initiative. Our friend comedian Andy Kindler was gracious enough to come back and wield the gavel at the auction podium. Andy prides himself on being the most annoying person in the room at all times---and he did not disappoint! A frequent guest and correspondent on the Late Show with David Letterman, as well Comedy Central, and Fox's Bob's Burgers, Andy is slyly hilarious (in an annoying way) and he had the bidders chuckling under their breath. A success!! He is known in comedy circles as a troublemaker, but on Saturday he didn't make trouble, he made people bid! There were great items on the auction block and people got some great scores while helping out the neglected and abandoned animals of LA.

Highlights from Saturday's auction:

All together the audience bid $330 and with Amoeba's match we are able to donate $660 to Best Friends Animal Society and NKLA! Yes! Thanks to all of our customers who come out to support our charity auctions. Come to our next auction the first Saturday in April -- they are always a great time!
