Syd auctioning off items from Childish Gambino, Kehlani & more for charity

Pitchfork Festival 2018 - Friday
Syd at Pitchfork Festival 2018 (more by James Richards IV)

Syd (of The Internet) has been raising money to benefit All Hands and Hearts, a volunteer-powered disaster relief organization doing work in the Bahamas, where the effects of Hurricane Dorian are still being felt. She held a gala, with the theme “A Night at the Disco,” raising over $9,000 for All Hands and Hearts and Big Brothers Big Sisters LA. The gala was also a launch party for a charity auction that’s now live on eBay, where, as Syd says, she’s “auctioning gifts from some of my favorite artists and good friends.”

Those “favorite artists and good friends” Syd mentions include Kehlani (purple ASOS velour ankle boots, size 7; cropped black Michael Kors moto jacket, size small; signed Junya Watanabe/Comme des Garcons white leather platform boots), Childish Gambino (white adjustable ATL hat, light green distressed t-shirt, Connolly brand faded black short bill hat, “Till DEATH Do Us PART!” trucker hat, green army style jacket, all used), Macy Gray (Perry White black shaggy overcoat, unknown size; Duarte Jeans light brown leather jacket, size large), and Kilo Kish (Tory Burch black/navy overcoat, size 2). There are also signed pieces of The Internet merch up for grabs, signed Converse sneakers from Vince Staples, a Steve Lacy exclusive signed CD and t-shirt, sacai x Beats by Dre headphones, and more. Take a look at everything, and place your bids, here.
