    DJ AM, a.k.a. Adam Goldstein, was found dead in Manhattan Aug. 28. He was 36 years old. The disc jockey narrowly escaped death in 2008 when he survived a small plane crash in South Carolina.

    Hundreds of shoes from the late DJ AM's sneaker collection are set to hit the online auction block for charity.

    The auction, which kicks off on eBay at 4:30 PST on Sunday, will give 100 percent of the proceeds to the DJ AM Memorial Fund, which will distribute them to organizations and projects, which deal with recovery.

    Both new and used pairs will be sold.
