A Night With The Stars

For many June is a month for high school graduation – a day filled with smiling photos and celebration. For Beth Barbis this year had a few extra camera flashes as she walked won the red carpet with her father at the Les Paull 10th Anniversary in New York City. The sold-out tickets, won by her mother Krystal on Listia, were a special graduation gift for Beth and a birthday present for husband Glenn.

From Glenn’s extensive record collection to Bethany’s saxphone playing, music runs deep in their familiy. So it was the “opportunity of a life time” to attend the 100th Anniversary event was in honor of Les Paul – the father of the solid body electric guitar. Les Paul is widely known as the inventor of multitrack recording, overdubbing, delay effects, and many other recording innovations that today’s recording artists use every day.

Venturing from Conemaugh, PA, just outside of Pittsburgh, they started their night walking down the red carpet in front of over 50 news crews who clamored to get the photo. Later the Barbis’ enjoyed a sold out performance by rock legends Joe Bonamassa, Steve Miller, Warren Haynes, Steve Vai, Neal Schon, Johnny A, Count’s 77 and Joe Satriani.

Beth had the chance to turn the tables and take photos of the stars and papparazzi herself before they headed to an exclusive invite-only after-party jam session with other musical greats at The Iridium Club on 51st which is where the great Les Paul played every Monday night up until his passing. There they were greeted with VIP seating, food and a giant birthday cake in the shape of the famous Les Paul guitar.

Exhausted from all the adrenaline and seeing all the amazing guitarists play, they headed home late at night from their “once in a lifetime” night in music history. Beth will be studying Photography and Business at Robert Morrison University in the fall. You can view her photos from the night here.

Stay tuned as we bring more extraordinary items to our marketplace and make Listia the best place to declutter and simplify your life while getting things you’ll love and use!

Helping Give Back to Charities on Listia

GivingbackThe only thing better than receiving is giving. That’s why every month we select two charities to highlight as part of our Charity Program. With our monthly Charity Program, all members are encouraged to donate funds to charity without spending any money whatsoever.

Members are able to donate a few of their Listia Credits to any one of our monthly charities. While members donate their Credits, Listia matches those credits with real money which is then donated once the month is complete. Over the years Listia members have raised more than $40,000 USD for a wide variety of charities around the world!

We’re excited to announce the two charities for June on Listia.

TJ Martell

TJ Martell Foundation

Forty years ago music executive Tony Martell was faced with a devastating diagnosis for his young son T.J. His son who was a victim of leukemia at the age of 19, asked his father to do whatever he could to find a cure. When T.J. unfortunately passed Tony devoted his life to keeping his promise to his son.

The T.J. Martell Foundation was created and has since gone on to support innovative research and medical treatments for leukemia, cancer and AIDs. Tony’s promise has far exceeded his initial promise to raise $1 million dollars to fight leukemia and the Foundation has provided over $270 million dollars to support innovative medical research in fighting these diseases.

Mobile Loaves & Fishes

In the US there are more than 48 million people that live at or below poverty levels and cannot afford to cool or heat their homes, cook for their children or even have light during the night.  Listia has partnered with Gridmates in a joint mission to end energy poverty. By engaging and empowering people and businesses to supply the gifts of energy, Gridmates will help nonprofit organizations and individuals energize their lives! They are starting this quest by helping power Community First! Village, a project of Mobile Loaves & Fishes that is scheduled to open in Summer 2015.

Community First! Village is a visionary 27-acre master planned community in Southeast Austin. The village will provide affordable, sustainable housing and a supportive community for more than 240 disabled, chronically homeless people.
