Tourpedo, Inc., a Raleigh, North Carolina-based software company, is launching its online auction division with a music memorabilia auction containing memorabilia from some of the world’s most popular artists.
What makes this online auction unique is that 100% of the memorabilia sales from the campaign will support Make-A-Wish Foundation, Tourpedo’s charity partner for this auction. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy every 37 minutes.
Some auction highlights include the following items: signed guitars by Moby and Rodney Atkins, a signed shirt worn on tour by Michael Buble, 2 tickets to the Toby Keith concert of your choice, a signed poster by Dave Matthews Band, and more. The auction will start on Monday, July 20th @ 9 AM EDT and will close on Thursday, July 30th at 9 PM EDT. To bid, go to www.tourpedo.com/auctions.
Tourpedo live streams concerts for premier artists, venues, and festivals, both for profit and to support charitable organizations. Tourpedo decided to launch this new division in order to provide its artists with another way to give back to charities. The company incorporated online auctions into its model because Tourpedo’s co-founders have years of experience in that industry, having previously started NextLot, Inc., which has run over 10,000 online auctions for auctioneers.
According to Emily Finkelstein, co-founder of Tourpedo, “This event is a great opportunity for music fans worldwide to acquire memorabilia from some of their favorite acts with all of the proceeds going to support a great cause.”
