About Amoeba's Auctions:
In early September 2005, after Hurricane Katrina ravaged Louisiana, Amoeba Hollywood began hosting charity auctions to help raise money for the Gulf Coast Relief Efforts. Our Hollywood store continues to auction off items including 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 to Michael Jackson puffy stickers (with winning bids of $5 - $20) and Devo hats,; from Brian Wilson box seats for 4 at the Hollywood Bowl (which went for $550) to a pair of tickets to a sold-out Supergrass show for $200, along with gift certificates from our generous neighbors (Trader Joe's, Urban Outfitters, Arclight, Intelligensia Coffee, and others). With the Amoeba match, each item 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.
