Test Pressing eBay Auctions Benefitting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation
We're auctioning off some very rare Spartan test pressings and other releases on eBay with 50% of the proceeds being donated directly to the Washington Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Read on to find out how you can bid on test pressings from Mae, States, Schematic, Anchor & Braille, and Over the Ocean as well as rare test pressings from bands like Underoath, As Cities Burn, and MxPx, and help make a difference.
Why are we doing this?
My name is John Frazier. I own and operate Spartan Records here in Seattle, WA. I'm just one of many, many people who have lost family members to Cystic Fibrosis. In fact, my parents lost two of their children to Cystic Fibrosis and as a family, the disease and its effects are something that have characterized our unique perspective of loss, healing, and faith.
As with many of us who have experienced such devastating losses, we search for reconciliation and ways to make a positive impact in the wake of such profound heartache and tragedy. With March 16th being thirteenth anniversary of my brother Jeff's death, we're choosing to use the small resources at our disposal to give back to the foundation that continues to search for a cure to his disease. These auctions are our way of fusing our passion for music and art with our unending love for Jeff and others who live with Cystic Fibrosis everyday.
