Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, and Big Daddy Kane are giving back for the holiday season by auctioning off rare items for The ASCAP Foundation.
As part of the third annual Holiday Auction for The ASCAP Foundation, several A-list music makers are coming together to help support the next generation of songwriters by contributing personal items for bid, a press release states. Along with Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg, who will auction off custom Air Force Ones designed by Frankie Zombie, Big Daddy Kane, and pop stars like Olivia Rodrigo, Selena Gomez, and Reneé Rapp will also have items for sale.
The goal is to bring music education to young people through the auction that runs from Nov. 30 through Dec. 14. Big names across music have gotten in on the campaign, including DJs Steve Aoki and Martin Garrix, rock stars Travis Barker (Blink-182), Tenacious D, Papa Roach, Richie Sambora (Bon Jovi guitarist), Chicago, and Josh Klinghoffer (former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist), and songwriting legends like Paul Williams, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis, Desmond Child, and Poo Bear, among many others.
Even a few sports teams and music companies have contributed to the auction, including the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Gibson Guitars, the Brooklyn Nets, Atlanta Hawks, DJ Flict, the Los Angeles Football Club, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
Items for auction include autographed guitars, vinyl, handwritten lyrics, original song compositions written for the winning bidder, VIP tickets to awards shows, concerts, sporting events, meet and greets, personalized videos, and more.
“We could not be more excited that the Holiday Auction is becoming an annual tradition for The ASCAP Foundation,” Nicole George-Middleton, The ASCAP Foundation Executive Director said.
“It has been incredible to see the donations pour in from ASCAP’s top members as we work together to raise funds to support future music creators. It is truly a one-of-a-kind auction for music fans, and we thank our supporters from the bottom of our hearts for their generosity.”
