VINA virtual auction showcasing trips throughout U.S.

VINA has four different trips across the country to bid on in the Spring “Out of Quarantine” Virtual Silent Auction. The auction opens at 6 a.m. Wednesday, April 14, and closes at 5 p.m. Saturday, April 17.

The first national auction item is a trip to sunny Arizona! Bidders have the chance to win a three-night stay at JW Marriott Desert Ridge in Phoenix, Ariz., along with a certificate to Topgolf and gift card to use at the resort on the many amenities.

Another auction item down south is a trip for two to San Antonio, Texas. This package includes a two-night stay at the Omni La Mansion del Rio hotel, a tour of historic San Antonio and dinner for two at Boudro’s Texas Bistro.

A third sunny and bright package is a stay at The Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove in Miami. Two people can enjoy two nights in a deluxe room at the beautiful resort overlooking either Miami or the beach in addition to a $300 credit to Council Oak Steaks & Seafood located at the Hard Rock Casino.

The final national trip is only an eight-hour drive away to Nashville, Tenn. This package includes two tickets to a show of your choice at The Grand Ole Opry, a post-show backstage tour, two-night hotel accommodations at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center and dinner for two at one of two restaurant choices: The Old Hickory Steakhouse at the Gaylord Opryland Resort or the Opry Backstage Grill at the Inn at Opryland.

There are many local trips, golf packages, Michigan getaways and stay-cation items up for auction for those not ready or able to travel to different states quite yet. For more information on trip expiration dates, restrictions and starting bids, please see the auction website.

The auction is open to the public, and bidders can register for free up until the auction closes. Sponsorships are available for purchase for businesses and community members alike.
All money raised during the Spring “Out of Quarantine” Virtual Silent Auction benefits VINA Community Dental Center and the many uninsured, low-income patients in need of dental care.
