Travel Auction Is Back

Bid to win a weekend in Chicago and see Cloud Gate, aka The Bean, at Millennium Park

Feeling lucky?

Your winning bid could land a two-night stay at the JW Marriott Las Vegas Resort & Spa in the annual online auction hosted by the Society of American Travel Writers.

It’s one of more than 60 trips and travel-related prizes that you could potentially score for a fraction of their value, ranging from a weekend stay at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Chicago to a Nile cruise and Scottish golf getaway at the Fairmont St. Andrews.

The “Gone with the Wind Experience” in Atlanta caught my eye, and as a member of SATW I am eligible to bid on the four-night stay at Irish castle hotels in the section reserved for writers only…a gal can dream.

There’s a promise of additional packages being added to the pot so be sure to check back periodically to see if there’s anything new that’s worthy of your vacation budget.

Proceeds from the auction benefit SATW professional development and other programs.

Browse the dreamy destinations and plan your bidding strategy; the auction closes at 11 p.m. (EST) Sunday, November 20.
