The third annual holiday auction for the ASCAP Foundation is now live, with a slew of one-of-a-kind souvenirs from pop, rock, hip-hop, and country performers up for grabs.

Several pairs of custom Frankie Zombie-designed Nike Air Force Ones signed by Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, a limited-edition Our Place x Selena Gomez cookware collection, a pair of Sony headphones signed by Olivia Rodrigo, and an exclusive merch bundle from Reneé Rapp featuring hoodies, T-shirts, and vinyl are among the collectibles whose sales will benefit music education for young people and the next generation of songwriters.

“We could not be more excited that the holiday auction is becoming an annual tradition for The ASCAP Foundation,” said ASCAP Foundation executive director Nicole George-Middleton in a statement.

“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.”

Fans can also bid on a commemorative edition of E.H. Taylor Jr. single barrel bourbon signed by Chris Stapleton, a Gibson guitar signed by country stars Kelsea Ballerini, Lainey Wilson, Brothers Osborne, and others, a used and signed drum head from Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, a Big Daddy Kane-signed copy of his Ain’t No Half Stepin’ LP, and a Tenacious D-signed Music Relief.

Cigarettes After Sex, Papa Roach, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Alan Jackson, Poo Bear, Martin Garrix, Carly Pearce, Jimmy Jam, and Terry Lewis are among the other bands offering products for sale.

The auction which is currently ongoing online, will end on December 14.
