You might not be able to stroll through the auction tent this year, but you will be able to scroll through it!
This year’s auction has gone digital, so you can get in on the action – even if you’re tuning in from home*. The Tournament of Champions annual auction shows off incredible, once-in-a-lifetime items every year, but the best part is what happens after the auction closes. All net proceeds directly benefit the Diamond Resorts International Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that supports children’s causes, veterans’ resources, COVID-19 relief and more.
If you’ve ever wanted to own a piece of sports history, this is your opportunity. Sports fans may be interested in a basketball signed by the Orlando Magic, a hockey stick signed by Vegas Golden Knights right wing Reilly Smith or UFC gloves signed by the UFC flyweight champion Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko and light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. Or maybe you want to be a little closer to the action with four tickets to a 2021 NASCAR Cup Series race, pit passes included.
If you’re looking for your next exotic escape, we’ve got the ultimate vacation adventures up for grabs, too. A five-day escape to Waikiki Beach, seven nights in Thailand or a week in Puerto Rico can help settle your wanderlust. Want to stay a little closer to home? Maybe a weeklong trip to San Francisco or three nights in Charleston is just the ticket to bid on. Snag a getaway to Napa for a rustic escape or an urban shopping spree in Bloomingdale’s!
For family outings or an adrenaline rush, look no further. Bid on four tickets to one of the nation’s largest country music events, Country Thunder. Soar above Las Vegas with a Maverick helicopter ride to arrive in style for a NASCAR Cup Series race (pit passes included), or get in the driver’s seat yourself for a NASCAR or Mario Andretti Racing Experience: just you, the wheel and the speedway. For something a little more low-key, take the kids for a day to ZooTampa at Lowry Park, Gatorland or the Discovery Children’s Museum in Las Vegas.
You can bid online* through the Handbid app (available in the Apple Store or Google Play). Make an account, find the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions Auction and start bidding. The auction is open now until January 24, 2021, at 12:00 p.m. EST.
*Participation in the Diamond Resorts International Foundation online charity auction is only available to residents of the United States.
