A box for 12 at the O2 to see P!nk, VIP tickets to the MTV Europe awards in Amsterdam, a fashion and massage makeover followed by dinner at Nobu and a shopping trip to Harvey Nichols with a £500 budget are just some of the lots in Stonewall’s 2013 Silent Auction.
The Silent Auction – which supports Stonewall’s ongoing work to improve lesbian, gay and bisexual equality in Britain – is open online to bids from everyone.
This year you can choose between 19 different lots. Other prizes include a home recital from opera star Ed Lyon, mouth-watering burgers and a red wine tasting at Bar Boulud, and a three night stay with dinner and spa treatment at Hotel Rosa Alpina in Italy.
If you’re an art aficionado then there are new pieces from Kobi Israel and Lucy Ash on offer. Film fanatics could be touring Pinewood studios and taking in the set from the latest James Bond epic Skyfall. And foodies can salivate over dinner for six with Yotam Ottolenghi at Nopi.
‘There’s something for everyone in this year’s Silent Auction,’ says Catherine Bosworth, Stonewall Director of Fundraising. ‘Money can’t buy some of these experiences and each bid helps support Stonewall’s vital work to improve equality for lesbian, gay and bisexual people in Britain. Some bids are for groups of people – so you can buddy up with your friends or colleagues and send a group bid.’
