What’s more, the auction has already garnered a well-deserved reputation as one of Miami’s most festive fundraisers. The auction items include incredible travel packages to far-flung destinations throughout the world. There is a tremendous array of fantastic weekend getaways, fine dining and the best entertainment and cultural attractions South Florida has to offer. Because Miami is, in fact, a geographical crossroads to the rest of the world, and an ideal point of departure for getaways to points throughout North and South America and the Caribbean, it’s the ideal place to plan a major travel and leisure auction. Clearly, this is the kind of event that will appeal to South Florida’s love for travel. What’s more, the timing could not be better. Spring seems to be a natural time for turning one’s thoughts towards recreation and summer vacations.
The doors will open at 5:45 p.m. for registration. Guests then have the opportunity to enjoy a sumptuous buffet dinner with complimentary wine, to mingle with Miami’s leading movers and shakers, and to enjoy the evening’s entertainment. At the same time, there will be many opportunities to bid on an incredible array of exciting items offered in the silent auction, taking place from 5:45 pm to 7:45 pm. At 8:00pm, the oral auction gets underway, once again featuring Professional Auctioneer Michael Guyer. With over 500 entrees up for bid, there should be no shortage of exciting offerings to tempt your desires. However, even if you choose not to get caught up in the auction fever – and we dare you to resist – the food and festivities alone are a guarantee of a good time.
So what more could anyone ask for? Well, consider the cause. The Summer Spree Auction is a charitable event that benefits the Arc of South Florida, a non-profit United Way agency, which serves more than 60,000 individuals throughout South Florida. It has a two-fold purpose: to ensure the rights of all persons with developmental disabilities through ongoing advocacy, and to provide specialized programs and services that help clients lead meaningful and fulfilling lives.
