Every year as the donations for Peak Potential begin arriving I get excited about which ones I plan to bid on or which ones I feel are particularly awesome. This year, I thought I’d take the time to share some of the amazing options provided by our generous group of donors and let you join in the excitement and if you are attending create your own plan as well. I’ll take this moment to thank you in advance for bringing, if possible, your checkbooks. While we do take credit cards their use reduces the amount that 2020 Vision Quest receives by 3% of your payment. Now on to the exciting part, what’s up for grabs??
Live Auction Items
This year’s live auction items are a pretty exciting bunch and I am particularly enthusiastic about them because I get to directly participate in two of them!
The items include:
- A chance to join Randy and I for a hot air balloon ride.
- A one to two hour visit with Santa for your holiday party.
- Dinner for 4, made by me personally, and hosted at Randy and my home.
- Two tickets (note: Tracy correct error from three to two) for a November 29, 2017 taping of the Stephen Colbert Show in New York City.
As usual, one never knows what sort of additional items Randy may decide to throw into a package so be ready for anything and start your planning!
Silent Auction Items
Our silent auction offerings are a diverse mix of experiential, travel, artistic, potable, and fun items. We already have over 90 items this year which means my preview of items below cannot possibly include them all. Some items that stood out to me personally include:
A weekend Getaway or ski weekend in a vacation home located just 20 minutes from North Conway. There are several weekend options to choose from and this home sleeps 6-8 people.
Two nights stay in Carrabassett Valley with 4 ski lift tickets.
Two nights stay at Loon Mountain.
An amazing Coach handbag, the leather is butter soft and this is an amazing everyday bag.
A signed autographed copy and photo with the author of The Tethered Mage, a new fantasy book that is getting rave reviews.
Fun for all of the adventure lovers including gift certificates for paintball, escape rooms, indoor rock climbing, Launch Trampoline park and more…
We have a return of a several very popular jewelers, along with a few new jewelers and array of pieces to fit many different styles from necklaces to bracelets and earrings.
For the athletically inclined we have gift certificates to Runner’s Alley, an amazing Head tennis racket package from, Willow Racquet & Fitness Centre, a great swim package from H2GO (I can attest to the greatness of their swim coaching!), as well as, a variety of options for ski lift tickets.
Gorgeous imagery by Greg Neault, Lisa Berman and Yolanta Sprucinsky (watch out, I’m bidding on all three!). Also a chance for a personal portrait session by Mallory Portraits.
I could go on for a very long time. I think this year we have been particularly blessed with generosity from donors providing a grand variety of items and you will find something for everyone in our auction. I look forward to seeing you on the 18th!
