Adrienne Shelly Foundation to hold celebrity eBay auction

The Adrienne Shelly Foundation (ASF) will hold an auction on eBay November 12 that will include TV and movie walk-on roles, lunches with celebrities including Edie Falco, Cheryl Hines, Rosanna Arquette and Keri Russell and signed items from Matt Dillon and Richard Pryor.

ASF supports the artistic achievements of female actors, writers and directors through a series of scholarships and grants. It was founded after the murder last November of actress and director Adrienne Shelly.

"What makes this event truly special for us is the little known fact that Adrienne was an eBay Power Seller, an elite status reserved for only the most active sellers of merchandise," said Andy Ostroy, ASF founder and Shelly's husband, in a statement. Ostroy is also the chairman and CEO of list management firm Belardi/Ostroy. He said that Shelly sold over 1,900 vintage clothing items on eBay.

"We've taken that same passion and dedication which she had for eBay and created a very special auction in her honor," he added.

The auction will go live the same night ASF will be holding its inaugural Fundraising Gala in NYC, which will include a musical performance by Alanis Morissette.
