The auctions will be powered by EBay and all proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross International Response Fund and go directly to Tsunami victims in Asia.

“The images of devastation are unforgettable, and you can’t help but be moved to action,” said Contemporary Productions Senior Partner Sam Foxman. “We were discussing how we could make an impact on the relief effort when one of our employees suggested we ask musician friends to contribute memorabilia for a benefit auction. We were on the phones the next day, making it happen.” –Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
