We have reached our fourth and final week of the 2014 CL Holiday Auction to benefit The Children's Home, which has been serving Bay area children and families via prevention and outreach programs for more than a century. All of the active auction items are listed on eBay and each set of items (from gifts to services to full-scale experiences) has gone to the highest bidder at the end of a 10-day auction.

I've been posting details about all music related stuff here on Ear Buds each week so you can keep track of what's going on and pick out that perfect gift for your loved one this holiday season. So far in music, we've auctioned off two days of studio recording time. Currently, there's a little less than three days left on Interview Your Favorite Musical Artist and You Too Can Ukulele (which includes uke lessons along with ukulele, gig bag and a few other goodies).

Over the last five CL Holiday Auctions, CL readers have helped us raise $85,000 to benefit The Children's Home, which has been serving Bay area children and families via prevention and outreach programs for more than a century. This year, we hope to jack that up to $100,000. Creative Loafing launched our 2014 Holiday Auction a few weeks ago; all of the auction items  are listed on eBay — you can link to them right here — and each set of items (from gifts to services to full-scale experiences) can be bid on for 10 days before a new auction with different items goes live.

Creative Loafing has officially launched our 2014 Holiday Auction today, and the sixth annual edition is looking to be the best one yet. Yeah, yeah, we say that every year, but this time we really, really mean it. 

Over the last five auctions, CL readers have helped us raise $85,000 to benefit The Children's Home, which has been serving Bay area children and families via prevention and outreach programs for more than a century. This year, we hope to jack that up to $100,000.

This week, the one music related item up for bid is a big one: Two days of studio time at Rock Garden Recording

Two days is enough time to cut a three-to-five-song demo or fine-tune the hell out of a few singles. The winner of this auction item commandeers 16-20 hours’ worth of studio time with Dan Byers at Rock Garden Recording. Active for several years now, Rock Garden has seen the likes of Zulu Wave, Wolf-Face and New Cathedral come through its doors, among many others. The St. Petersburg studio features state-of-the-art equipment — an industry standard Pro Tools HD system coupled with high-end outboard — and an impressive selection of mics and other high-quality gear.
Value: $800.

CLICK HERE to place your bid. Bidding on this item ends 9 a.m. Sun., Nov. 23.
