Popular Destinations for Popular Auctions
June 23, 2015
With over twenty years in the non-profit auction travel business, and more than $1 billion raised for charities around the world, we’ve accumulated a good amount of knowledge about what donors and supporters like. Donors heading to Hawaii want to go to the beach. Donors heading to Colorado want to either go hiking (the summer) or skiing (the rest of the year).
But some of our destinations are so multi-faceted that they appeal to a wide range of bidders and so popular that demand has dictated giving them multiple itineraries. That’s why our catalog – with more than 300 travel packages available – offers multiple options for many of our favorite destinations. These popular locations attract all sorts of different bidders, making them great additions to any auction.
There’s an experience for everyone in New York City, which is why Mitch-Stuart offers 17 different trips to the Big Apple. Sports fans will enjoy the chance to take in the U.S. Open, one of tennis great tournaments, while foodies will love the “Nosh Your Way Through Three New York Delis” that includes gift cards to Katz’s, 2nd Ave. and Carnegie Delis. There’s “Shop ‘Til You Drop” and “Worldwide Passion for Fashion” for the fashionista bidder, and even a package with tours of the city’s historical landmarks, “New York’s History in the Making.” A fan of New York could attend your auctions for years and never see it all!
As a region, Southern California may be as diverse a block of land as can be found in America, from the San Diego Zoo to the glitz and glamor of Hollywood. Fittingly, Mitch-Stuart offers a diverse list of travel experiences in the Southland. Whether it’s golf in Carlsbad or Indian Wells, luxury on the beach in Laguna Niguel, or attending an award show like the People’s Choice Awards or ESPYs in Los Angeles, there are plenty of ways to play in the California sun.
American destinations are not the only ones with a wide range of available adventures, either. Mitch-Stuart has nine separate trips to Paris, to celebrate the city’s art, food and joie de vivre. Send your donors to some of Paris’ greatest museums with the “Paris as an Art History Destination – Magnifique!” package, or make a couple’s anniversary dream come true with “The City of Lights is Yours to Love” itinerary, which includes an evening “private illuminations tour.” Mitch-Stuart even offers two tour that split time between Paris and Rome, for the indecisive donor, based around either landmarks or food.
