Artworks, memorabilia, personal possessions and other ephemera from the collection of actor Robin Williams and his former wife Marsha will hit the auction block in October with a portion of proceeds benefiting causes they supported, Sotheby’s said on Friday.

The “Creating a Stage” auction will take place on October 4 in New York, featuring noteworthy sculpture and contemporary art as well as more personal items such as bicycles, wristwatches and Hollywood memorabilia, including Williams’ Hollywood Walk of Fame Award, Reuters reported.

Williams, the Oscar-winning star of “Good Will Hunting” who was beloved for his manic humor, died in August 2014 at age 63 in a suicide in his Northern California home that shocked fans worldwide.

The sale will encompass works and items spanning the couple’s “diverse interests and careers, all reflecting their shared passion for collecting,” the auction house said in a statement.

Highlights include a Hogwarts School robe worn by Daniel Radcliffe in the first “Harry Potter” movie estimated at $10,000 to $15,000, and a Deborah Butterfield horse sculpture, “Madrone (Cody),” estimated at $220,000 to $280,000.

Also offered are autographed scripts, awards, props and wardrobe associated with projects across the Williams’ careers, as well as furniture from their homes and decorative items, including art by British graffiti artist Banksy.
