ABC’S ‘JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE’ TO HOST FIRST-EVER YARD SALE ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, TO BENEFIT MY FRIEND’S PLACE IN HONOR OF UNCLE FRANK
On Saturday, October 1, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” will be holding its first-ever yard sale in the studio’s back parking lot as a part of ABC’s Summer of Service campaign. All proceeds from the event will go directly to My Friend’s Place, a nonprofit resource center in Hollywood aiding homeless youth, in honor of Jimmy’s late and beloved Uncle Frank’s Helping Hand Foundation.
This is a unique opportunity for “Jimmy Kimmel Live” fans and neighbors to own a piece of the show’s history. Items for sale will include various set props, wardrobe and memorabilia previously used on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” over the show’s 14 years on air. For those who are unable to attend the sale in person, there will be an additional opportunity to purchase some of the most noteworthy items from past shows via eBay for Charity starting September 27 at 9 p.m. EDT on www.ebay.com/jimmykimmellive.
The yard sale will also serve as the conclusion to ABC’s Summer of Service campaign. From June through September, ABC has been inspiring young people to make an impact in their local communities by applying for $500 Summer of Service grants. All summer long, changemakers have been pitching ideas to make their communities healthier, greener and stronger. This Saturday, “Jimmy Kimmel Live” is giving back to the local Hollywood community through My Friend’s Place. To learn how you can make a difference, visit YSA.org/BeInspired.
