The Detroit Phoenix House non-profit is one of the beneficiaries of a virtual "garage sale" -- including White Stripes memorabilia -- from Jack White's Third Man Records.

The auction, which will run from Aug. 26-30 via onlinenashvilleauctions.hbid.com, includes guitars, drums, amplifiers and other stage equipment and props, some of which was used on stage or in videos for the White Stripes, White's other band the Dead Weather and for his solo tours. There are 66 lots in total, and bidding for each will start at $1,000.

The Detroit Phoenix Center is dedicated to "improving outcomes for the most vulnerable, primarily youth. In addition to cash donations it also accepts food, hygiene products, school and home supplies, bus passes, retail gift cards and other items. More information at detroitphoenixcenter.org.

The Third Man auction's other charities are the John Peel Centre in England and Gideon's Army in Nashville. Third Man operates facilities in both Detroit and Nashville.
