Choose Your Own Adventure

August 05, 2015
One donor loves the bright lights of New York City. Another loves the relative peace of Jackson Hole. One wants to take his son to Wrigley Field in Chicago. Another wants to see basketball played in the mecca of the sport, Madison Square Garden.

Get them all bidding on the same trip.

At Mitch-Stuart, Inc., we pride ourselves in being able to help charities and other organizations select the perfect non-profit auction travel packages to offer at gala events, the type of trip that really brings the “wow” factor. But sometimes, donors love the freedom to be able to pick their own destinations, to choose from several options. For organizations willing to let their supporters take control of their own vacations, here are three of the ways that we can help.

  • Sports fans are a fickle bunch. While they love their specific team, many of them won’t go too far out of their way to watch games featuring other squads. That can make picking a specific destination to attract donors who love a professional squad difficult: Your gala may feature fans of several, even dozens, different franchises in different cities. The good news: Our “Go to Any Game in 50 Markets” trip avoids having to make that decision. We can secure tickets to any game in any of the four major professional sports, so your Yankees, Red Sox and Dodgers fans can all bid on the same travel package – and more competition means more money!
  • Those who wish to be pampered know that there’s no geographic bounds to luxury. That’s why donors looking for a high level of sophisticated service know to seek out resorts in the Fairmont Hotel family – Fairmont, Raffles and Hotels and Resorts and Swissotel. And that’s why your supporters can be guaranteed that pampered feeling with our “Legendary Luxury Around the World” package, which will send them to one of the aforementioned properties anywhere in the world. With destinations ranging from Seattle to Abu Dhabi, it’s hard to imagine a potential bidder who won’t find a dream vacation location for this trip.
  • Of course, there’s even a way to offer an auction item that opens up Mitch-Stuart, Inc.’s entire catalog of more than 300 unique travel experiences: Let the donors choose with a gift certificate! Available in denominations of $500, gift certificates allow our organization the opportunity to make any once-in-a-lifetime travel dream come true for your donor, and it takes any of the guesswork out of picking the right auction option for your supporters.
