Hundreds of pieces of memorabilia from Barbra Streisand’s career will be auctioned off June 5, with proceeds going to charities that the Streisand Foundation supports.

More than 400 items will make up the auction at Astra West in the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, with simultaneous bids taken online, auction coordinator Darren Julien said Monday.

The auction, dubbed “Her Name is Barbra,” will feature famous items that trace the career of the singer and actress from the early 1960s to today, Julien said.

It will include costumes from “Funny Girl,” “A Star is Born,” “The Way We Were” and “The Main Event,” album cover proofs, vintage costume jewelry and stage props from Streisand’s tours, he said.

The auction items will go on display May 10 at Takashimaya in New York City; at Planet Hollywood in London; and starting May 31, at Astra West.
