* Overall, what type of experiences make the most money for organizations? Bucket-list sporting events and entertainment experiences, cabin vibes, private villas and homes.

* Timing:

  • NO, you are not too late in offering our experiences at your event. All good, we can still make it happen for you!
  • A creative way to raise more money at your event is to utilize the timing of your fundraiser and the momentum of an event-based experience [ie. Kentucky Derby, CMAs, etc].

* Tough Love:

  • Donated trips to your organization – YES, take them all. However, you are NOT selling a donated experience 13x in a live auction, raising 6 figures like Ronald McDonald House just did with ONE of ours.
  • Choose experiences based on your crowd, not your own personal financial situation. It’s about who is in your audience.
  • Example – if you have 150 people showing up at your event, don’t choose 10-12 experiences. Select 3-5. Narrow the focus. We can help you!

* NEW Experiences just ADDED:

  1. English Premier League Live
  2. Making Memories in Mykonos
  3. Picture Perfect Portugal
  4. Admire the Amalfi Coast
  5. Best of Barcelona
  6. Cortona Hilltop Stay
