Here is what was in the Silent Auction at Enter the Mind of Moog
You may not know it, but Michelle Moog-Koussa ran a successful gift shop, called Amore, in Asheville for many years. But soon after Michelle started the Bob Moog Memorial Foundation, she realized she had to close the shop to devote herself full-time to the Foundation. Because of Michelle’s extensive business experience, a lot of excellent Asheville gift shops donated lots of goodies for our silent auction. But there’s more in there for the collector and musician. Here is a quick summary of the items offered in our silent auction, which benefits the Moog Foundation.
