According to Travel + Leisure, Gavel&Grand, sister site of online auction house Paddle8, offers auctions of curated experiences and luxury items in support of philanthropic organizations.
Most recently, they launched an auction featuring travel bucket list experiences which were available to bid on until March 26th.
Auction highlights include a Hamptons weekend with a film screening hosted by Alec Baldwin; red carpet access to the season premiere of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire in New York; a trip to Sir Richard Branson’s Kenyan Safari Camp; tickets for two to the 2014 World Cup game in Rio de Janeiro; or a luxurious vacation in southwest Peloponnese Greece, among other experiences.
Founding partner of Gavel&Grand, Osman Khan, says that the: “Bucket List auction represents the apotheosis of [Gavel&Grand’s] mission: a collection of once-in-a-lifetime opportunities benefiting a group of leading philanthropies by dramatically expanding their networks of supporters.”
Going once, going twice…start your bidding and then pack your bags.
