Beasties, Beck, Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Kick In For Online Auction

The Beastie Boys, Beck, Dave Matthews, and Pearl Jam have items on the block as part of an online auction to benefit the Milarepa Fund.

The artists have all donated autographed items to the auction, which is currently accepting bids at http://auction.milarepa.org. There, fans can try to land a Beastie Boys skateboard deck, an R.E.M. viewmaster set, and autographed posters from various artists. Bids on these items will be accepted through the end of the year, and so far the item stirring up the most fevered bidding is an autographed Pearl Jam tour poster that currently boasts a top bid of $1,100.

All funds from the auction will go to the Milarepa Fund, which cites as its goal a "compassionate community," and has specifically focused on relations between the people of Tibet and the Chinese government that rules over them.
