Charity Auctions

Most galas and fundraisers include charity auctions.  Some are silent auctions, with tables full of gift baskets.  Live auctions can be more entertaining, with a skilled auctioneer trying to ramp up the bidding.  Some auctions are completely online now.  In either case, travel packages always hit the top of the list when it comes to charity auctions prizes.  If you are searching for ideas for the perfect charity auctions item, then you’ve come to the right place.  We take pride in offering unique travel experiences that will help you maximize your fund-raising revenue.

Most charity auctions are targeted to affluent adults, and there’s nothing more appealing to them than the chance to get away on a one-of-a-kind travel experience.  The perfect travel package is sure to bring in the biggest donations for your favorite charity, and we have a lot of experience meeting and exceeding the expectations of auction winners.

It can be difficult to find someone willing to donate a complete travel package for your charity auctions.  Perhaps you’ll find someone with a vacation home in a prime destination.  Perhaps you’ll find someone with millions of extra airline miles to donate.  But if you are struggling to come up with the perfect auction item idea, we have an easier solution.

Consignment Travel Packages for Charity Auctions

Rather than looking hopelessly for someone to donate an entire travel package, we have a better solution.  We can customize a travel package for your auction, and offer it to you on consignment.  That means you can offer the most amazing travel packages you can dream up, but with no financial risk to your organization.  It costs you nothing.  We provide you with a set reserve price that covers our cost to provide the package, and you keep everything above that for your charity.  That’s right, you keep 100% of the auction donation above the reserve price.

We take the hassle out of building and executing a travel package.  We know you are not a travel agent.  We handle all of the logistics for you.  Once you sell the package to the highest bidder, your work is done.

Please note that we are the actual people who will be fulfilling your travel package.  There are many other travel sites that resell our packages.  But now you’ve found the source.  Our team will be personally responsible for making sure your auction winners have an epic experience.

Just wanted to thank you for your help in making such a memorable trip for my dad, uncle, and myself this week.   We had an absolute blast.  Everything from housing, hospitality, and transportation was top-notch.  Know how hard everyone was working to take care of people and can not imagine the logistics of pulling that off, but you all did it, and it was superb.

Thank you for making this happen for us.  Trip of a lifetime with special memories.

They set up things I couldn't have even dreamed of doing, or planned myself. The team was extremely friendly and helpful, you can tell they LOVE what they do. Thanksgiving 2021 in NYC, check that off the bucket list in the most special way ever! Thank You Bucket List!!

Jamie Allen, 2021 Macy’s Client

Very grateful to the Bucket List Events team for helping us craft a wonderful itinerary for the 2021 Kentucky Derby. Despite the ever-changing status of the event given the pandemic, Ben and the team ensured a wonderful and memorable weekend for our group. Looking forward to partnering again on a future event!

Graham Hearns, 2021 Kentucky Derby Client

Extremely happy traveling to the June 2021 Olympic Trials in Eugene, Oregon. Toby was an awesome knowledgeable, personable guide. The tickets to the events and hotel accommodations were superb. This was my first time traveling with Bucket List, but it won’t be my last.

Karen Redway, 2021 Client

A big shout out to Bucket List Events. Thank you for guiding us through the ticketing process and securing us fantastic seats [at Churchill Downs]. We also appreciated all of the wonderful suggestions of things to do while in the area. You definitely went above and beyond. We had an amazing weekend!"

We really enjoyed our trip to New York to see the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! Ben, Brian and Rich did an amazing job to make sure we all of our needs were taken care of. Looking forward to doing it again next year! Thanks, guys!

Joan Williams, 2021 Macy’s Client

My daughters and I enjoyed the trip of a life time to New York City with Bucket List Events. Their attention to details was amazing! The parade experience could not have been better! We loved every minute of our time in the city. They truly made this experience a dream come true! Thank you so much. I recommend them 100%.

Sheila Wolfe, 2021 Macy’s Client

We could not have been more impressed with Bucket List Events during the Running of the Bulls this past summer. Toby and his staff were exceptional. They were knowledgeable, accommodating, fun, and very inclusive. It was an unforgettable experience, with great memories and great people to share it with. I will look forward to checking more items off my Bucket List with this company!!

Brian Forsythe , 2019 Pamplona Client

Traveled with my parents, wife, and two oldest boys this year and Bucket List Events did not disappoint. First class service! The Hospitality area and base camp were fantastic. Shuttle to and from the course made it stress free. Wednesday practice round allowed my sons to high five the vast majority of current players and legends of the game. The North Augusta home that was secured for us was nothing short of amazing. I would not hesitate to use Bucket List again and quite certain my family will on other future events.

Dr. Gaspard, 2018 Masters Client

We had a 15 person trip to Oktoberfest this September and the whole trip, end to end was brilliant. All of our party was more than pleased with all aspects - Bucket List Events exceeded our expectations and we are thankful for such a fun and smooth trip!!
