Pack Your Bags! Great Auction Travel Items!
Looking over our Travel Items for the Auction this year makes me smile! This is, by far, the best bunch of getaways that we have ever had. So bid high on these and get ready to pack your bags.
You can travel to some away games, catch some rays in Kauai, ski in Tahoe, hit the tables in Vegas, spend some time in The City—whatever suits your fancy!
By far our most glamorous travel item is #170—A Stay in a luxury North Lake Tahoe vacation home! This item is again generously donated by John Paye and offers a once in a lifetime chance to stay at one of North Lake Tahoe's most exclusive estates. Take a look and you'll see what we mean!
Located at Stateline on the California side, this is right on the lake and has its own dock available for your use. Bring your boat or jet skis and enjoy fabulous Lake Tahoe. This Estate was originally built by the Hills Brothers of coffee fame as their vacation home. From the living room, sit by the fire and enjoy the expanse of Lake Tahoe right in front of you. Sit in the family room and enjoy the huge big screen TV while enjoying the sunshine through huge lakefront windows. Enjoy the sunset from the huge deck area. Perfect for a large family getaway/reunion or would make for a spectacular wedding setting as this home will easily sleep 30 people! You won't regret bidding on (and winning!) this terrific opportunity!
Because of the special nature of this item, we are giving you 2 options:
* One week value is $10,000. Opening Bid is $5,000
* Weekend value is $5,000. Opening Bid is $2,500
Highest bid, regardless of length of stay will be the winner of this item! Why not get a group of friends together and bid on this terrific item. I had the pleasure of staying here several years ago and I cannot rave enough about what a spectacular place this is!
This isn’t your only Tahoe choice—take a look at spending a week with one of these items:
* #14 Northstar Condominium Stay
* #114 Weekend Stay at West Shore Lake Tahoe 4 bedroom home that sleeps 10. Take a look at this terrific spot!
Prefer a little tropical action instead? Check out item #99 a 5 night stay at a Poipu Kai Condo in Kauai. Longtime donors Dave and Lanie Wheeler are providing a dream vacation in a beautiful 2 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath newly remodeled condo at Poipu Kai Resort in Poipu Beach, Kauai. This condo offers a deluxe ocean view and is just steps from the beach. Guests may play tennis, relax in a Jacuzzi, and swim in the two pools that are on site. Two beautiful golf courses are adjacent to the property. Poipu Beach was recently named America's Best Beach by The Travel Channel, ranking top among 10 "best" beaches selected nationwide. This beach is a series of golden sand crescents, strung together where beach-goers will find snorkeling, swimming, wading boogie-boarding and surfing. Sounds great, doesn’t it?
OK, OK—you want some gaming along with your vacation? How about a 2 night stay at the hip Palms Resort in Las Vegas #87 or a trip to Clear Lake for a visit to Robinson Rancheria #171. The Palms trip includes tickets for 2 to the Riviera Comedy Club and the Rancheria is throwing in $100 of casino cash!
If you are looking for stays in the Bay Area, we’ve got you covered! A great spot in San Francisco-- #30 Best Western Tuscan Inn at Fisherman's Wharf. How about #93 a Stay at the San Jose Hilton for Pac-10 tourney time? Coming to Palo Alto for a game and need a spot to stay? Choose from:
* #17 Sheraton Palo Alto
* #18 Crowne Plaza Cabana
* #22 Stanford Terrace Inn
* #165 The Garden Court Hotel
Heck, we even have a One Night Stay Cabin, tent or RV Site at the San Francisco North KOA #109 and 5 days of pet sitting from Four on the Floor #162!
Last but certainly not least, we have hotel stays at the Stanford team hotels in Eugene, Marina del Rey. Seattle, Spokane and Tucson. If you’re headed out on a PAC-10 trip, why not get your stay here and benefit the Program!
Wow, we really do have something for everybody! Hope you can make you plans now and bid extra high on these items.
My next Blog will (hopefully) be from the road—really! I am off to Tennessee and Georgia for the games down there and if the wireless Gods are on my side, I’ll try to file a report or two.
